Just tried Lotus of Siam in Las Vegas

J. Carl Wallace | Oct 24, 2000 03:08 AM

After reading rave reviews here. I went with a group of 5 business associates in for a show from the midwest, after finally convincing them to get out of the strip. It was as good or better than anything I've had at L.A. Food Court, my favorite hangout at home. Isaan style shredded raw beef was my favorite of the dozen or so dishes we ordered, and there was another similar dish (one of the house specialties)made with liver that was excellent They asked each person for their heat preference (1-10 scale) which I thought was nice, but we lost track of which dishes were hottest, and one guy almost passed out when he tried my som tum (which I ordered extra spicy). The hot sour catfish soup was fantastic. I hope this place makes it in Las Vegas, the locals don't have very sophisticated adventursome palates out here, and most tourists stick around the strip, although I did see a busload of japanese folks get out at a sushi place across the way. Anyway, thanks to those who posted here some months back about this place, I will definitely go back on my next business trip.
