Sam Cohen Las Vegas Restaurant Tour/ Lotus of Siam

SOOOO HOW ABOUT AN ALL TIME FAVORITE!! This is a Las Vegas Hot Spot. If you like Thai food, this is a must do experience. This is more of a traditional Thai food style of dining. Most Thai restaurants are more of a Thai street food style. The difference is clearly seen in the presentation of the dishes.

A great thing for me is dining is defiantly in the family. This is a frequent spot for us. We had this dinner to wish my nephew a farewell to college. We started the night with crispy rice and pad Thai. The crispy rice was prepared Stir-fried with eggs, onion, tomato and shrimp. It is amazing how crispy this dish comes out. This pad Thai is also Stir-fried done with thin rice noodles with eggs, green onions, bean sprouts and chopped peanuts on the side. I have to say this is the best pad Thai I have had.






From there we moved into the panang duck. This is my favorite dish at Lotus. The curry is prepared with such a great blend of spice and sweetness. The panang suace is prepared with The color and flavor of fresh & dried chilis make this curry a unique dish. Cooked with coconut milk, Thai basil and chili. Above all the duck is always prepared with the perfect crispy skin.




Then we had a chefs special from the chef’s special the crispy mussle omelet. This is a fried omelet cooked to a crisp. this is served on top of suateed bean sproutsand green onion and served with a spicy sweet sauce. This dish complimented the sauce with the natural salt from the mussles.



Finally for main course a Thai basil chicken. A traditional dish that is common. I have to say preparation is key with this dish. Lotus prepares this with Sautéed with minced fresh and dry chilis, garlic, bell pepper and Thai basil.





No dinner is complete without desert.  We just kept it simple. We had their famous coconut sorbet and a slice of vanilla cake. The sorbet is simply refreshing. The slice of cake was flaky and light.
