I went out to dinner at Lotus for the first time in…probably close to 10 years.  We’d eaten there a few times when we first moved to Frederick, but abandoned it for Hunan Gourmet’s more extensive vegetarian selection.  I found it wholly unchanged.  I ordered the Yellow Bird, a dish made by wrapping sauteed veg in yuba (a tofu skin).  It was okay.  Not bad at all, but heavy of sauce and just uninspired.  The sauce tasted like whatever brown sauce Chinese restaurants buy from whatever is the Chinese restaurant equivalent of SYSCO.  meh.  My dinner mate ordered the curried vegetables and it tasted like SYSCO yellow sauce.  Fine, but workmanlike.  No vegetarian soups on menu.  I can’t say it’s worth the trip for a meat-free dinner.
