[ Lotus, The Place For Pho Lovers ] My Love for Lemongrass


Can you believe that this is what they are actually called?
Located on 4131 No. 5 Road, Richmond, this restaurant was apparently called Pho Boi before. I guess that didn't attract enough customers so the re-branding to Lotus helped. Seeing as we are mostly in Vancouver, driving all the way to Richmond for a bowl of pho seemed a bit far for us, but we really did not want to go to any restaurants near our area again. (If I had a post for every time I went to bubble world, I would just copy and paste my post over and over again.)

Got served tea as soon as we got down, service was alright - it was great to have all the waitresses speaking fluent English. In a matter of minutes after ordering and chit chatting, food came!

I got B4, that is all I remember. 
"Chicken marinated in a lemongrass sauce grilled on an open fire" 
I have a love for lemongrass chicken, especially with sunny side up eggs on top (Yes please.)

Soft, tender, moist, chicken accompanied with noodles, lettuce, carrots, nuts, bean sprouts, and tomatoes.
Presented so beautifully that I have to have multiple shots of it in this post.
Coming out of that restaurant completely satisfied for less than $10 really takes the cake. The simply presented dish with fresh ingredients makes me want to go back for seconds if only the location was closer to me. As well, I would say this place definitely has a cleaner, more refined atmosphere to it compared to the flashy neon lit pho places that I usually go to.

Lychee Ice
Look at those plump canned lychees floating in its ocean of sugary goodness.

Overall, I really enjoyed the change of atmosphere, definitely enticed my appetite. I enjoyed my meal a lot more seeing how clean the tables, chairs, and utensils are. Every little detail does make a difference and hopefully Lotus will continue to attract Pho lovers!
