Respond to Review of CLOSED: Loving Hut
by Laura Hall
Review: I visited the Loving Hut on holidays in the area, and it was the best Chinese buffet I've ever had. I am not given to exaggeration, but I really did love this place. It's run by a lovely elderly Taiwanese couple, the husband and chef is effusive in discussing the dishes, unfortunately my Spanish wasn't up to the task, but I would have loved to engage him in proper conversation. My companion and I went at lunchtime on a Monday (many places closed in Malaga) and contrary to previous reports it was open on time. We were greeted with iced tea infused with mint and lemon (complementary), and what followed was a literal feast that left us both extremely full and very happy. There is a buffet counter with several tofu and seitan dishes (each very distinct and flavoursome), noodles, spring rolls, tempura, sesame dumplings, and lots of salad vegetables. We were feeling very satisfied (particularly liked a dish of aubergine and seitan in tamarind and soy sauce) when the proprietors started to come to our table with more food- a fried chicken style dish in sweet sauce, sushi, and some crazy chinese lasagne featuring lentils and tomato sauce with lots of spices. Everything was fresh light but very tasty, and while some food was fried, at least 70% was not, so it was easy to avoid if you want to. We were encouraged to eat more, and certainly got value for money(8 euros each, very cheap by local standards). I recommend it to anyone in the area, it's worth travelling to, although you won't have to if you staying in Malaga city as it's quite central. I certainly won't miss an opportunity to visit again!
