Respond to Review of CLOSED - Loving Hut - Alhambra
Review: I had first read about this place on happycow and have eaten here twice so far. Here's my Loving Hut Alhambra review update. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very causal, bright, and clean with many tables for seating. Large windows line the front of the building letting in natural sunlight. Was just here again in June 2012 for lunch. This time around I ordered a hot pho noodle soup, a cappucino (made with soymilk), and for dessert the tiramisu cake. The noodle and the soup were both yummy. The cappucino had a very tasty thick foam on top, but the espresso itself tasted a bit "off," like a flavored coffee than straight up espresso/capp -- I think it might have been the type of soymilk used. Previously I had come on a weekday for lunch with my friend, and we had both enjoyed our shared meal of spring rolls with faux shrimp inside served with a sweet and salty peanut sauce, the slightly spicy royal noodle soup (bun hue), an order of teriyaki kabob (tasty but salty). We finished our meal with coffee and carrot cake (cake was fine and not too sweet, but the texture was a bit doughy for me). The entire staff here is very courteous and friendly. I would definitely return to try some more of the other dishes. Please give Loving Hut your support when you are in the Alhambra area!
