Vegan Korean - Edit

If you want vegan Korean food go to this loving hut. It is a little hard to find. They usually only have two options on the menu, and it will take a bit to be made. Ive been to a number of loving huts, and this one isn’t really like the main chain. It’s loving hut by name, but a vegan Korean restaurant by design.

Slow and delicious food - Edit

We had a little difficulty finding it at first as the location indicated in Happy Cow is misleading (go up Songchong-Buk Ro north a bit from where it is marked on the map, then on the left side).
We were there in the afternoon after a slightly exhausing hike, being alone in the restaurant with the owner. He explained the small menu to us (it has recently been extended by 3 additional items, one of them a great mushroom-noodle soup). Then we could watch him prepare our food from scratch - I never before felt so much that someone is actually cooking for me while being in a restaurant.
We had the Korean-style Bibimbap (with soy meat) and the mushroom-noodle-soup, both of them very good, coming with a few tasty sides. The spice level was significantly lower than what we are used to in other places here. The amount was, as usual here, more than enough even for our hungry hiking bodies.

Pros: Only 100% vegan place in Daejeon, Great Food, Friendly owner

Cons: Small menu (no dessert :-( ), Location, Toilets (squat toilet only)

A WIN! once you find it - Edit

After searching for Loving Hut we were so happy to spot it! It's at the very end of the road and off to the side of the Main Street. We went later in the evening and the owner turned the lights on for us and cooked food from scratch. We speak no Korean and he had a small menu with English as well. He has added a few menu items and I got the red bean rice bowl. Delicious. He brought out sides of kimchi and delicious root vegetables. In addition to food I was able to get non-GMO ketchup and dates while I was there. We plan on going back often. I highly recommend finding this Loving Hut. He wants the world to go vegan and anything I can do to support businesses like that, I'll try!

Pros: food, grocery items

Cons: location is hard to find. happy cow address is acc

Very satisfying - Edit

This new location has a cute interior that makes it feel very welcoming. I had the bibimbap with soy meat and soup. I haven't really eaten soy meat before but eating this made me feel guilty. The owner is very sweet and asked how my meal was. In addition to selling food, they also have a few coffee drinks plus some vegan packaged good for sale. Overall, great place and will come again!

Note: took the 701 bus from seodaejeon negori and got off at jongridong. Walked about 5-10 minutes.

Pros: Quiet atmosphere , Delicious food with no cruelty , Sells vegan goods too!

Cons: Not centrally located

Loving Hut in Daejeon (Sintanjin) - Edit

Outside of Seoul it is very difficult to find vegetarian/ vegan food or selection is limited and Daejeon is no exception concerning this fact. It took me quite a lot of time to get to this far located Loving Hut from Yuseong (Daejeon) so I couldn't go very often during my exchange year in Daejeon. Also the menu was very limited but the food was always tasty and the owner so friendly! He sometimes even gave me some small dessert after the meal.
I hope his business will also go well in future, so please support. :)

Pros: Taste, Friendly owner

Cons: Location, Limited Menu

Great place, great food, great owners! - Edit

This place is wonderful! The food is made with care and lvoe and you can really taste that they put some effort and time into what they make. Most Loving Huts are terrible because the cooks just microwave up some fake meat and put no effort into what they're doing, but this Loving Hut in Sintanjin is just the opposite. They use fresh veggies and make their own sauces. This place gets a 10/10.

Pros: excellent food, great value, nice staff

Cons: nothing
