When travelling in other countries, it’s always great – exciting even – to find places that accommodate vegetarians.
With over 200 restaurants worldwide, Loving Hut is one of the largest and fastest growing vegan chains in the world. Each restaurant is individually owned so the menus differ at each venue – I’ve been to Loving Hut in Cabramatta, west of Sydney, and the menu consists of predominantly Asian-style dishes.
Going to an all veg restaurant can make choosing a dish difficult because you can have anything on the menu…and I really did want to try EVERYTHING.
I started with a rosewater cordial and the Au Lac dumpling soup with enoki mushrooms in a Vietnamese broth. This was great for a starter as it was light and not too big a serve.
The restaurant is easily accessible with entry points on the street out front and back. As we walk through the back car park, a small ‘Be vegan, make peace!’ sticker on the back door is a sign we’re in the right place.
Inside the dining area, framed paintings and drawings (for sale) are displayed on one wall and on another, a cutesy blue and yellow mural has a fun fairytale theme. In the kitchen area is a long communal table and a fluorescent sign reads ‘vegan & love’.
When it came to ordering mains, my friends raved about the Bali bliss soba salad (this would be a fab lunch option) but I wanted more than a salad for dinner so I chose the almond crumbed fillet with mash and veg. It was reminiscent of a schnitzel and mash with a healthy side of veg – wouldn’t that make an excellent pub meal!
With the B12 french fries – crinkle cut chips with nutritional yeast and a side of tomato sauce – we were smart and ordered two baskets between four of us. I’m a big fan of ‘nooch’ and use it a lot at home, it adds such a good cheesy flavour.
At dessert / coffee time we shared a frozen, creamy hazelnut slice with topped with caramelised nuts and drizzlings of chocolate sauce.
I really enjoyed the food and inviting atmosphere at Loving Hut. If I had more time in Singapore I would absolutely have gone back – the menu has lots to offer and it would be great to sample more dishes. I’m keeping this veg joint on the list for my next visit.
Friends, what are your favourite veg eats in Singapore? Hit me up with your suggestions and I’ll add them to the list for my next visit.
