Square Lotus, Bellevue Wa

Location: Bellevue, WA, USA
From Vegan Gastrobot
We don't often venture over to Bellevue, but we had an event to go to so we decided to find someplace to eat close by. While looking for options I found Square Lotus and decided to try it out since it reminded me of Moonlight Cafe. I was hoping it would be just as good and... it was much better! We ordered some veggie summer rolls which had tofu, carrots, jicima and rice noodles served with a peanut sauce. These were really good, but fresh rolls usually are (they are one of my favorite foods).

We also ordered the square lotus veggie curry - veggie chicken in green curry with bell peppers, eggplants, green beans, and basil served with brown rice. I like most curries - most of them taste similar and are quite good. This one was amazing! They use the same mock meats as Moonlight Cafe and I have no idea what they did different, but whatever it is it works. It was super creamy and so so good. I would definitely recommend this.

We also tried the Vietnamese rice noodles. I know the photo doesn't look very good, but again this was amazing! The flavor was light, but it was probably one of my favorite rice noodle dishes I have ever had. Everything was cooked perfectly.

Overall - Square Lotus doesn't look like much from the outside. It is in the corner of a strip mall, but the food is fantastic! Highly recommend dining here if you are in the area. Everything we had was unbelievably good.
