A storm is often associated with atmospheric disturbances that eventually lead to ordinary rain showers and snowstorms to thunderstorms and violent winds. However, it’s not always the case. For the Boholanons, a storm can also mean something that is delicious.
Lotus Storm in Panglao, Bohol is a revolution of our ordinary Asian meals. It is a stylish restaurant whose specialty focuses on creating something new and delectable out from the different ingredients of the different dishes that are served in Asia. They call it a fusion of Asian culture and the resulting cuisine is mouth-watering.
You will have a variety of options to choose from. They have flavorful snacks and appetizers to tease your taste buds. The bites are a mix of sweet, spicy, crunchy, and for the diet-conscious, healthy options. They have different dishes for beef, fish, chicken, lechon and steak lovers. High-quality wines and other beverages are also available at your disposal.
The good thing about this fine-dining restaurant is that it continuously experiments new dishes so that you will have something new to look forward to for your next visit. When the situation gets better, Lotus Storm is geared towards being a music bar and restaurant.
But the food isn’t the only thing that makes your visit to this part of Panglao exciting. The ambiance of the place is already worth it. It depicts ‘fish storm’ as its theme. Upon entering the restaurant, it’s hard not to notice the beautiful ornaments designed like bubbles and schools of fishes hanging on the ceiling. Accordingly, the best time to visit this place is in the afternoon, around 5PM, so that you can catch the ‘golden hour’ from there and witness how decorations sparkle from the natural sunlight that shines through them.
Lotus Storm is situated on the strip fronting the beach hence, you will be treated with a wide and stunning view of the sea and the white sand while you savor the food. Who wouldn’t want that? You can eat al fresco or inside the restaurant. The walls are also designed like scales of the fish to further highlight the restaurant’s theme.
This classic and modern restaurant started its operations in Boracay and was later brought to Bohol. They have two branches in Boracay and three branches in Bohol with one planned to become a resort soon.
Asian cuisines have always tickled the interests of the Filipinos with Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Korean restaurants sprouting all over the country. In fact, Korean-style barbecue is one of the top food trends. Being able to taste the different Asian culture in a single dish is superb and quite interesting.
