Respond to Review of Loving Hut - Pittsburgh
by DC Vegan
Review: My boyfriend and I were in Pittsburgh for the NHL Winter Classic (we're Washington Capitals hockey fans) and were delighted to discover that a Loving Hut was essentially right around the corner from our hotel. I heard from someone else who had been there that it had just opened, which may explain the lack of customers. Both times we went the place was practically empty. It's also in a strip mall at the top of a hill. Coupled with the lack of crosswalks, this meant it wasn't really walkable for us, so we drove. The food, however, is delicious. It's wonderful to be in a restaurant and realize you can order anything on the menu because everything is vegan. We began with the Fresh Summer, which were tasty, but very much like rolls we get in most Asian restaurants. For an entree, I got the Grilled Sensation, a combination of savory soy protein chunks, veggies, and rice, while my boyfriend got the Ginger Tofu, with chunks that were soft without being mushy and had just the right flavor. We also got dessert, a chocolate cake with the most amazing mousse-like frosting. We enjoyed it so much we went back the second day, where I got the Coco Tofu (very interesting) and he got the Guru Fried Rice. The service was a bit slow--perhaps that's the atmosphere, and I wasn't crazy about the Supreme Master TV playing in the background. But the restaurant was otherwise bright and roomy, and worth a trip if you're in Pittsburgh.
