Vegetarian egg rolls at Lotus of Siam
East of the strip

Lauded by food bloggers and critics, Lotus of Siam was rated the best Thai restaurant in the US by now-defunct culinary bible, Gourmet magazine. We might not go that far, but it is certainly a rare and unexpected treat in an otherwise unprepossessing strip mall. Saipin Chutima puts her specialties on the huge and easy-to-read menu, and isn’t afraid to make her food spicy. However, many diners opt for the excellent and super-cheap lunch buffet.
