Thai Lotus Kitchen

Admit it--the place looks sketchy.

So imagine the look on my face when my friends suggested dinner at this hole in the wall., thanks. 

But after checking out Thai Lotus Kitchen's menu and seeing their consistently high marks on the City of Dallas Food Inspection page, I decided to give the place a shot. And I'm so glad I did...a few too many times last week!

Once you get past the less-than-beautiful exterior, Thai Lotus Kitchen is a rather pleasant place. Service is fast, friendly, and the food is wonderful! Every dish is made with super fresh veggies, served with two heaping scoops of steamed rice, and almost everything can be made vegan upon request.

My faves:

Spicy Basil Tofu
Made with baby corn, bamboo shoots, red bells, carrots, mushrooms, and fresh basil. The dish is mildly spicy and a bit salty, but the rice helps cut the salt factor.

Red Curry Tofu
Perfectly seasoned red curry with green beans, red bells, carrots, zucchini, bamboo shoots, and fresh basil. 

Sticky Rice 
Sweet sticky rice laced with fresh mango slices. Yes--we get dessert, too! 

Have any of you been brave enough to try Thai Lotus Kitchen? 
Let us know your faves!

You know, some of the best-tasting food come from the worst-looking places. In the case of Thai food, though, that might just be a requirement.

I'VE BEEN THERE! I ate there about a year ago and LOVED it.
