Respond to Review of Loving Hut NYC
by DC Vegan
Review: My boyfriend and I were in NYC for a hockey game at Madison Square Garden, and I was happy to discover that there was a Loving Hut near MSG, so we could grab a bite to eat just down the street (as arena food is notoriously awful for veg*ans). I checked the menu, and it looked pretty good, but sometimes looks are deceiving. I ordered the Vegan Joy, described as soy protein and mixed vegetable in teriyaki sauce, while my boyfriend got the Loving Hut Sandwich. I tried a bite of his, and it wasn't bad (the chipotle mayo had a kick to it). Unfortunately, my food was incredibly bland and flavorless. It was a pile of the soy protein pieces, some rice, and a few veggies. There was not a hint of "teriyaki" in the entire dish. The "bubble tea" we ordered was just tapioca pearls tossed into ordinary iced tea. The location is also very small, with seating for maybe 10 or 12 people, but we were the only ones there, except for a woman who placed a takeout order. Service was polite and efficient. If I go to NYC, I probably won't make a visit to this Loving Hut unless I'm going to another event at the Garden. And then I'll probably get a sandwich.
