Changing the perception of veganism one meal at a time
Loving Hut is the kind of restaurant that I would love to see more of. An international brand, it uses 100% vegan ingredients and shows the world that vegan food doesn’t have to be boring. Shaking off the impression that all vegan food is either salad or rabbit food is a tough job to do, but Loving Hut is as successful as it is for a reason. The food is amazing, the amount of choice is something that I haven’t experienced at a 100% vegan restaurant before and the food went beyond my expectations.
The main downside is the location, being so close to East Coast Park it’s a bit of a distance for me to travel, but since when does travel ever stop me from getting to me food? Never. Not only is the food to die for, but even the drinks in their fancy mason jar glasses and with their thick chunky straws are on a whole other level. The restaurant had a cosy, friendly feel to it, and it’s hard to believe that this isn’t an independently run store. Another issue is unfortunately the price. I really wish that it wasn’t so expensive as that combined with the fare of getting to the restaurant in the first place always costs more than I would like.
Despite the prices, the food leaves you desperate to come back and try everything else on the menu. It’s not just delicious, the presentation makes you forget that you’re just in just a small vegan cafe on Joo Chiat Road. The whole trip was delicious and knowing that it’s all cruelty free just makes it that extra bit better.
Who says vegan food can't be delicious?
As you stroll along the old heritage shophouses filled with eateries and pubs in Joo Chiat Road, you'll find this quaint little quiet cafe in a corner, just beside The Fragrance Hotel.
To be very honest, I've never enjoyed vegeterian food. I have nothing against vegans and I like veggies but fake meat??? I just can't. I need my (real) meat! So when my friend suggested meeting at Loving Hut for dinner, I was a little skeptical at first. But after seeing that they have quite a wide selection of interesting dishes, I decided to give it a shot.
My friend frequents this place often and she was raving about the Three-Cup Chickin Organic Brown Rice Set ($9.90) and Lemongrass Curry Organic Brown Rice Set ($9.90). Didn't feel like eating rice that day so I went for the Almond Crumb Fillet ($14.90) and Avocado Smoothie ($7.90). I'm not one to spend so much on a drink but I was really intrigued by the avocado and coconut combi and it was indeed delicious!! I loved how natural it tasted - it wasn't too sweet like those avocado milkshakes you'll find at hawker centres but at the same time, still tasty and full of flavour with an extra crunch from the coconut meat strips. The Almond Crumb Fillet didn't disappoint either. I love how it's cripsy, yet not oily. It's as good as it looks! In fact, throughout our meal, there were times I actually forgot that I was eating vegan meat and not actual meat. Kudos to them for that!
While the food and drinks were good, price will definitely be a factor when considering dining at Loving Hut. I'll probably only be back if I'm having a meal with a vegan friend or a friend who loves vegan food. This time, I'll try the local hawker delights like Teochew Mee Pok and Nyonya Laksa!
