Good Food, Clean, Good Value
Posted on 06 / 22 / 2011
A welcome addition to Houston, Loving Hut serves up some tasty vegan food at a good value (and for those 2.5 of you who say it's not, I'd like you to point me to the cheaper good vegan food). Although the location could be much better (it's waaay out there for those of us who live in central Houston), it's worth the drive to try it. My favorites are the Golden Beauty, a spicy, crispy-fried dish of fake meat for people like me who love heat, the Golden Vermicelli, a delicious rice noodle bowl, the Golden Wontons (hey, noticing a pattern here? I'm obviously fond of everything on the menu that's 'golden'), the Wonton Soup (a large, meal-size bowl, so don't order it as an appetizer), and the combo dishes with stir-fry veggies, rice, fake meats, and varying sides. The cleanliness here is impressive, but I wish they would turn off the two (count em',TWO!) televisions here, and take down the veg celebrity posters (minor complaints, though).
Update: Unfortunately, due to my last experience at loving Hut, I'm taking away a star. This time the food was cold and the stir-fry vegetables were still frozen. The Golden Beauty was completely different from what it was before, and it's not a good change. I'll give them another chance, and perhaps I'll give the star back if this was simply a one-day fluke.
