I think this is the best vegan place in Portland. Even if you're not vegan, the food is just outstanding in its own right. Fresh ingredients, excellent preparation, abundant flavors and beautiful presentation. The kitchen is tiny and there are just a few indoor tables, so don't be surprised if you have to wait or if your service isn't perfect. I go to this place usually at least once a week. When it gets really busy, they do sometimes make a mistake on my order, but they are always eager to make it up to me and remedy the situation. The people who work here are very nice folks. My favorite things are the tempeh fajitas, the raw pesto pasta, the spicy avocado sandwich, the noodle soup and the monk bowl are always good. I've never had anything at Blossoming Lotus that I didn't like. Even my kids love this place. My daughter (11 yrs old) loves the raw pizza. Don't forget to try the freshly squeezed juices. Pineapple Greens and Lemon/apple/ginger are my favorites. If you're there in the morning, the oatmeal is outstanding.
In the last few months, they've started doing things a little different at night. During the day, you just order at the counter, find a seat and wait for your food to come up. usually someone will bring it to you, but if it's busy, I sometimes go pick up my own. But now in the evenings, you will be seated at a table with cloth napkins and water goblets and someone will take your order and serve you. I think they are in the process of getting a wine and beer license (if they haven't already done so).
