Respond to Review of CLOSED: Loving Hut - Huaining
Review: Three of us went for an early lunch here today. The staff were warm and welcoming, and they were happy to explain the ingredients in their dishes. Most dishes had a no onion/garlic option, although we did want our scallions! We were told that none of their food contained any cow's milk, butter, cheese, or alcohol. Forgot to ask about yoghurt though, but I would assume they wouldn't use that either, but can't say for sure. We had some wonderful wonton noodle soup and good solid fried rice with a small side of stir fried vegetables. We also had a side dish of tonkatsu-fried style shiitake mushrooms. The batter was divine, tasted like it had a bit of curry powder in it, and we could see some sesame seeds as well. A bowl of miso soup (with cilantro in it, they've made miso soup more Chinese than Japanese!) came with our orders. We also had a lovely chocolate soy shake and a cranberry soy shake. The friendly girl we ordered our food from explained that they used organic soy milk in all their drinks. By the time it was 11,50am, the place was packed with office workers from nearby buildings. Quite cheap, too. This is a great place that's relatively easy to find, near the Taipei Main Station.
