I know I blogged back during Mofo about our first visit to Lotus Vegetarian Kitchen but now that we've been back twice more I can't resist sharing some more pictures and urging you to visit if you're anywhere near Manchester. The restaurant is in Withington which is a bus ride south of the city centre. It's a vegetarian Chinese restaurant where the majority of the dishes on offer are also vegan. Here's just a sample of some of the food we've tried.
Steamed veggie dumplings with dipping sauce.
Vietnamese spring rolls. Possibly the nicest spring rolls I've ever tasted. Not pictured but I can also recommend the taro rolls.
Not the most photogenic of dishes but this tofu and aubergine hotpot is a real star turn.
I've seen other people on Facebook rave about the chicken skewers in satay sauce and I have to agree that they are a must try dish. You can also try them as part of a sharing platter combo.
This final picture is of the stuffed three treasures which consisted of peppers, aubergine and stuffed tofu and was beautiful to look at and delicious tasting.
I've always loved Chinese food but in the 8 years I've been vegan have struggled to find any veggie dishes that taste as good as the meat ones I remember. Until now that is! I'm already looking forward to my next visit.
