Blossoming Lotus was the first Vegan restaurant that I checked out during my Portland adventures. I have to say, I was not disappointed at all with the quality, taste, and presentation of the food. The almond ricotta bruschetta was otherworldly!! Simply amazing. You might want to share this appetizer, as it is very large and filling. For my entree, I ordered the green bowl with super greens dressed with sweet scallion dressing, with choice of brown rice or quinoa, topped with steamed kale, cucumber, asparagus, avocado, and sesames seeds. Not only are the meals here delicious, they’re really healthy, so you don’t have to feel a bit of regret! My meal was also gluten and soy free. The menu is clearly labeled so you know which items are or aren’t free of certain ingredients. I found this to be very helpful, especially for those with dietary restrictions. Most of the dishes are also raw. They have a full bar menu along with smoothies, fresh juices, shots, and “mocktails.” So you really can’t go wrong here.
The service was great and the atmosphere is very tranquil and inviting. We sat outside because it was a warm summer day and it wasn’t too noisy or busy. There was even salsa lessons being taught at the latin restaurant across the street! So you can grab some yummy green eats at Blossoming Lotus and then shake a tail feather and burn it off afterwards! Enjoy!
