The lotus flower is regarded by Vietnamese people as one of the four graceful flowers and plants.
Known as the ‘flower of the dawn’, the lotus rises through the murky waters of ponds and lakes throughout the country. Yet, when it blooms and floats on the surface, it remains untainted and retains its elegant & majestic beauty.
To the Vietnamese, the lotus is the symbol of purity, commitment and optimism for the future. However, the lotus is also known to provide various medicinal and health benefits in daily Vietnamese cuisine. Thus, at Saigon Lotus, we carefully use the lotus in our dishes to add a unique and natural flavour to our authentic cuisine.
