Respond to Review of Loving Hut - Quan Thanh St
Review: Found this place by accident when searching for a nearby temple. The restaurant is a perfect lunch time stop if your in the Ho Chi Min area. Tucked down an open alley with yellow walls and white furniture. We were overwhelmed by the choice on the menu, but the pictures and descriptions were helpful as was the waiter and a local lady (eating her lunch) who spoke great english. Not too touristy, and the prices reflect that. The food is ALL VEGAN and they sell alcohol free beer and vegan coffee creamer and biscuits to takeaway. We ordered Pho, the traditional Vietnamese dish and I had Hanoi Pho soup with fake meat and rice noodles and my partner had a Pho salad and we shared some fresh/raw rice paper spring rolls . It was delicious and a filling lunch. The soup was only 25,000 Dong, so a total bargain! Our visit was a few days before their New Year, called Tet and we bought a Banh chung and were told by the local lady how to eat it for Tet, it was a sticky rice cake with spicy 'pork' wrapped in a banana leaf and could be kept for many days out of the fridge. Had the place not been closed during Tet we would have eaten their again!
