Vino Las Vegas and Winemaker Dan Tudor visit Lotus of Siam





We have visited Lotus of Siam on many occasions. In fact, we try to find reasons to go as often as we can.
When winemaker Dan Tudor wanted Thai Food there was only one place to go,
Lotus of Siam. This little restaurant has earned many international, national and local awards. Vino Las Vegas LLC did a review of Lotus of Siam in our Nov 8th 2007 issue.

We started off by ordering German Riesling Flights and sticky rice. Dan brought along
barrel samples of his yet to be bottled 2007 Riesling and Gewurztraminer. This provided us with an excellent chance to compare Dan's wines side by side with a flight of some well known
German Rieslings. Next up was the Spicy Thai Beef salad that paired great with all of these wines. We ordered a crispy duck dish and paired it with Dan's Radog Pinot Noir. As we suspected , this was another excellent pairing.
The Owner came buy and joined us in tasting the bottle samples Dan brought as well as the Pinot Noir. We were not done yet. The owner treated us with Graf Von Shonborn Riesling Bacchus 2000 . This was an excellent way to finish another incredible meal at Lotus of Siam. If you enjoy authentic Thai food Lotus of Siam is for you. Stop by and enjoy lunch or dinner reservations are highly suggested a few days ahead.
