When I visited the Lotus House I tried the Spicy Mala Chicken Skewer with peanut sauce and the House-made Cheesy Crab Wontons. Both options looked liked they would offer a ton of flavor.

The first thing I tried was the Spicy Mala Chicken Skewer. Upon the first bite, the only thing I really noticed is that it was cold – like this piece had not been left under the warming lamps like it should have.

Although it was cold, the flavors were not bad. However, I did not find it spicy. I do like spicy food, and I did not feel like this brought the heat. I did enjoy the peanut sauce; it did offer up a great flavor and the chicken was moist. It also had plenty of sauce, so I was happy to see that.

I then gave the House-made Crab and Cheese Wontons a try. You can check out Kate’s review on them HERE.

I was really hoping to love these, but found them to be only okay. These didn’t offer up anything more than a crab rangoon at your regular Chinese takeout. I’m not sure how, but I was expecting a little something more. Just like the chicken, I did enjoy the sauce. I do wish it had just a bit more sauce to dip those last bites in.

This booth was okay, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it. The food was decent, but I did not find it worth waiting in a long line for.

These were warm, but not piping hot either, but still enjoyable to a point. I definitely enjoyed this item more than chicken, but neither one is a must eat again. I wouldn’t make a special stop at this booth unless there was absolutely no line. Hopefully, I just caught this booth on an off day, as Kate had much better luck.
