Respond to Review of CLOSED: Loving Hut
Review: It was a little tricky finding this place, but I got a warm welcome when I did. Inside, there's a little sandwich board announcing the limited daily specials, which happened to be a veggie burger, vegan tart, and some kind of tofu thing the day I arrived. I was encouraged by the staff to go with the all-you-can-eat buffet. Not a bad choice for €7.95. Drinks are cheap; I wish I'd gotten the fresh-squeezed carrot juice, which was less than €2. The buffet is replenished when certain dishes start to dwindle. I helped myself to brown rice with bits of tofu mixed in, friend spring rolls, noodles, lots of fake-meat dishes with Chinese or Indian seasonings, mushroom dishes, more fake meat, and more fried things. There was salad, and sushi, too, which I went back for on Round Two. A couple of items listed on the menu--which is really just a little plastic display on your table and not an actual menu--had me thinking the place wasn't fully vegan; ice cream was listed for dessert, as were two things with honey. I verified with the owners that everything they offer is 100 percent vegan, and the "honey" is made from sugar. (The cook even came out to show me the jar!) Not a lot of ambiance and no beer or wine served (as is normal for the Loving Hut chain), but the food was filling and tasty and a good bargain. Much cheaper than France!
