Even the traditional breakfast sandwich gets reinvented as the (not)egg & cheese: a tofu patty with avocado and tomato on ciabatta, a guilt-free dream.
A Hawaiian import, Blossoming Lotus has blazed a trail for vegan fare in Portland over the past decade, serving up local, organic cuisine from salads and mac n cheese to coconut curry and the fan-favorite Live Nachos, which use mostly raw ingredients.
