Respond to Review of Loving Hut - Orlando
by DC Vegan
Review: Although I no longer live in Central Florida, I still have family there and visit periodically. I was glad to learn that there is a Loving Hut there, especially as I adored the Pittsburgh location. Every location, however, has its own menu, and this one was fairly good. My carnist sister has eaten here with me and enjoyed some of their offerings. It's not my favorite location of the four I've tried, but ity. It's also not my favorite veg restaurant in Orlando (that would be Dandelion CommuniTEA Cafe), but it is an option. All the Loving Huts I've been to seem to favor the mock meat route. I admit I like my analogues, but sometimes I do want tofu and vegetables. At this location, I recommend getting one of the combos so you can try the appetizer, the rice, and the entree in one go. When I went on a recent trip, I had leftovers that served as a quick lunch the next day. Another issue I have is that all Loving Huts play the Supreme Master TV, a propaganda station for Supreme Master Ching Hai (yes, the chain is a bit culty, but until there are more vegan chain restaurants, what can you do). The parking is accessed by a narrow one-lane driveway to a small parking lot in the back. In a town like Orlando, where public transit is more style than substance, this is problematic. However, in an area with limited vegetarian options, Loving Hut is a good place to go for an inexpensive, filling meal.
