Respond to Review of Loving Hut - Falls Church
Review: We were on our way to the Barrel Oak Winery in Northern VA. Nothing impressive there, except that our doggies were allowed. The scenery was great, but the wine... eh. But we're not here to discuss wine... En route to this surprise day at a dog-friendly vineyard, I took us for lunch at Loving Hut. Brief history, if you don't know: Loving Hut is a loosely connected vegan "chain" around the world. I've visited one in 5 cities on 2 continents, and the food ranges from Asian to burgers to local fare, etc. The one in Falls Church features mainly Asian -- Vietnamese, I think -- along with some American fare and a TON of vegan pastries. Many Loving Huts have freezers with all types of frozen, vegan faux meats... this one is no different. The food was pretty awesome. We had the crispy burger & fries -- fries are hard to come by in a place that fries only vegan items! -- the steak sub, and fried dumplings as an app. Dumplings were so-so, but the crispy burger was a runaway hit. The steak sandwich is a standard, Vietnamese sandwich: greens & carrots, etc. We paid less-than $30 for all of that -- keep in mind that this is the DC-area, and things tend to be pricey -- and we left well-fueled for the day ahead!
