Green Lotus is a plant-based Vietnamese spot in a small sunlit space in the Little Saigon shopping plaza where we like to go for lunch or an early solo dinner (they close at 8pm). Dishes like caramelized faux fish claypot and sweet and sour hotpot bring all the Vietnamese flavors you’d expect, just without any meat. The crowd is a mix of in-the-know locals and monks from the nearby monastery.
