"As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are, otherwise you will miss most of your life."
Located in the beautiful ski resort town of Telluride, Colorado, Honga’s Lotus Petal is a favorite amid locals and tourists. The Pan-Asian restaurant has a dynamic vibe that is funky, yet chic and sophisticated, featuring superb food like fresh sushi and traditionally eclectic Eastern fare. Changing regularly, the extensive menu uses fine and authentic ingredients that honor the cuisine of Korea, Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Polynesia.There is also a full bar offering an extensive wine, sake and beer menu, in addition to colorful tropical cocktails…most notably, the potent and delicious Mojito.
In the 21 years since its inception, Honga’s Lotus Petal has evolved into a Telluride institution, priding itself on being more than just a good place to eat. Named for the lotus flower, which symbolizes life, growth, and consciousness, the establishment aims to represent much of the same, focusing on individual health, as well as the health of the planet overall. All dishes are prepared on site, using local, natural, organic, and free-range ingredients whenever possible. Food is an art form, as well as the root to survival. Honga’s Lotus Petal melds these two concepts seamlessly, which results in a veritable celebration for the senses. Honga’s Lotus Petal is open nightly during the winter and summer seasons and centrally located right downtown on Telluride’s main street.
