I come here because the ladies are actually caring and kinda dote on you. They ask if you’re well, if you’re warm/cool enough, if you want more tea or sit near the window etc. This time an older gentleman came to look after us and he was cool.
At the time, I was still feeling ill and trying to shake off this lung infection so I going to a place where they served good ‘clean’ food does wonders to one’s waivering appetite. This was my 3rd visit and I wasn’t disappointed.
Then the most AMAZING salad I’ve ever had came to the table and it was that good that it deserved its own drum roll. I am not a huge fan of salad but this looked so fricken awesome because it was a work of art in the shape of a ziggurat!
This Burmese Salad $13 was dotted with all sort of delicious carefully picked leaves, beetroot, carrots, orange segments, peanuts and these crunchy puff nutty things that were Oh So Nice!
When we couldn’t fill our bellies anymore, the Crispy Delight $15 arrived which I miraculously found more belly space just by force burping. Crispy Delights are shitake and enoki (?) mushroom mixed together with mystery spices wrapped in nori and then again in some sort of bean curd which is then fried! Oh man, we couldn’t even eat even half of it and so we were allowed to take it home with us!
Loving Hut caters to vegan, vegetarian and gluten free. All this lovingly soul nourishing was washed down with orange, strawberry, carrot and ginger smoothies $5 served in 1950’s style milkshake glasses.
Chance of returning: High but I don’t go to Victoria St, Richmond as much as I should.
