Honga's Lotus Petal has remained a fixture for Asian cuisine in the resort town for over two decades. After humble beginnings, the restaurant today stands as a premiere dining establishment, and tourists and natives still love head chef/owner Honga Im's authentic creations. The menu has also expanded with time to include a variety of Asian flavors, ranging from Thai to Vietnamese. And this is also one of the few best places in Southwest Colorado to sample tantalizing sushi and sashimi. First-timers must try the Tom Kha Gai, Pho, Sweet Chili Satay, Pad Thai, Panang Curry, Thai Basil and Caterpillar Sushi. The sakes, teas and specialty cocktails set off the flavors of the dishes with a finesse. Atmosphere is casual and service sustains a high level; reservations are welcomed.
