Driving between NYC and Boston we have twice before stopped at Lotus, only to find it full. They say the third time is the charm, and in this case it was true.
My husband and I shared Bo Luc Lac (Shaking Beef) and a Saigonese Pancake. The beef was really delicious, and I'm now determined to recreate that dish at home. The service was friendly and efficient. The wine-by-the-glass selection left something to be desired.
Now we have their card, and will call ahead for future trips down 84.
