Respond to Review of Loving Hut - Elk Grove
Review: The first thing you will notice when you walk into Loving Hut in Elk Grove is how crisp and clean the decor is. It is also very large in case you have a big group. In addition to the cleanliness and size, take note that the staff is ultra friendly and helpful! Now for the important part- the food! Loving Hut serves a great assortment of Asian food. There is also a Loving Hut veggie burger on the menu. They also have a few desserts, smoothies, juices, tea and a non-alcoholic beer. The menu has pictures of the items and the food that comes to the table is actually representative of the pictures in the menu! Most items have tofu or a mock meat, but there are also some veggie only dishes. The Chow Fun and Chow Mein are both very good. They both have a wonderful assortment of fresh veggies and had both a mock beef and tofu. If I had to choose between the two, I'd choose the "fun" since the noodles were extra yummy! I also tried the Won Ton Soup which is great! I am not usually a fan of soup and usually skip it to save room in my tummy for other items, but I tried it and ended up having 2 bowls! The eggplant tofu with curry is also wonderful! It had a bit of spice to it which was appreciated! I liked that we were able to purchase either white or BROWN rice. On a separate occasion, I ordered the Veggie Burger and Orange Cake. The veggie burger was wonderful. It was obviously hand-made and chock full of veggies & tofu. It was SO much better than one of those pre-fabricated veggie burgers like a Gardenburger or Boca patty! The orange cake was good as well- very sweet. It is simply a treat to find any restaurant where you can go to (as a vegan) and feel like you are ordering like any other person when looking at the menu- no scouring the menu for the 1, possibly 2 vegan items, or trying to figure out which items can be veganized and whether the waiter/waitress will understand what a vegan is & whether the cook will get the order right! It's an extra treat when you have all the choices this restaurant has and the food is a wonderful as this!
