Fast and easy in an upscale mall food court
Posted on 10 / 21 / 2013
Yes, it's in a food court -- but this is a nice food court. You get glasses made of glass for water and real metal silverware to eat with. You can almost always find a comfortable place to sit down and employees bus tables and keep things clean. There are 10-15 different food places and a compact grocery store, so if you go with friends not into Loving Hut there's plenty of choice.
It's in the basement of the Westfield mall, where there are actually two food courts -- make sure you go to the Bloomingdale's end of the mall (not the Nordstrom end) to find the right one. In fact, the easiest way to get to the Loving Hut from outside is to go in the Bloomingdale's entrance on Mission Street, go down the stairs and walk out toward the mall. As you emerge, wa-la, tasty vegan food sits before you.
Well, you do actually have to order first. Like all Loving Huts the food is 100% vegan, Chinese influenced with a good variety. You can choose a combo plate with 2 items (I recommend basil mushroom and sweet potato curry) along with white rice, brown rice, chow mein noodles or fried rice. Pro tip: you can also substitute rice with their steamed kale if you want to be super healthy. Or, order a dish made on the spot; the garden vermicelli is a fresh noodle soup that comes with 2 fried rolls. Basically all of the dishes are the same price, $9. They have a few fun desserts and drinks too.
They have a stamp card so if you go here a lot be sure to get one.
Fast and friendly, Tasty, Pretty healthy
Not a romantic setting
