Loving Hut

Finally i'm writing about this cafe since it opened last week. Anyway, loving hut is a new cafe replacing the previous indinine. Its quite a pity as Indinine has built a reputation over the years. Anyway, If you do know where indinine has moved to, please let me know!
I'm quite happy that it is yet another vegetarian cafe replacing and this gives me more options to choose from since Im working at suntec.

Thats the cafe.. the Sofas are gone, but the tables, chairs are still the same. One thing is you wouldnt know its vegetarian till you see the poster or menus. This is a good marketing strategy, as loads of meat eaters shun the word veggie.

Thanks to Gill who made the trip down to lunch with me!

Mee Pok Dry ($4.80)

I remember seeing the price tag at $2.50, maybe my eyes did play a trick on me. Anyway, the portion was big and the soup tasted good. The most important part in making good mee pok is the tactics of cooking the mee pok. Luckily this tasted just right, it wasnt too soggy and in fact was chewy enough to make me finish the entire bowl. Ingredients comprises of fresh lettuce, minced vegetarian meat with mushrooms and fishballs. Soup is brewed with corn, sweet potato and carrots, making it real sweet. I like it! If you do order this dish, remember to request for no onions.

Silky Tofu Mushrooms Set $5.80

The silky tofu mushroom is served with brown rice and stir fried cabbages and completed with a soup. It is a big portion for 1 serving. If you are a small eater, I guess you may just order this set meal and add another plate of rice to eat with another person. The tofu tasted normal and i reckon the ingredients used on top is the same for my mee pok. The mushrooms are chewy though.

Tofu Jacket $3.80



Doesn't look good on pictures, but it is quite a surprise. The tofu jacket is a side dish we have ordered to share. 5 big pieces of Tofu stuffed with ingredients. I couldn't really make out wat are the ingredients (other than carrots and minced tofu), but it was really juicy.

Sunny Forest/ Rose lemon Juice $3.80 Each


Im not really into juices as I usually requests for plain water since most places do not charge a fee. Anyway, since I wanted to write about this place, gotta write something on the drinks... so we ordered the Sunny Forest and Rose Lemon Juices. Sunny forest is a lemon, mint and soda mixed drink. I thought it was good, and it comprises of a combination taste of sweet and sour. As for the rose lemon juice, there is far too much lemon taste that I could hardly make out the taste of the rose petals available. You can just order plain water to save the money.

Do request for no garlic/onions if you do not take them.

All in all, loving hut seems to be going all out this year to promote vegetarianism in view of the growing global crisis. They are planning to open (some are already opened) outlets in HK, Taiwan, USA, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, and this is definitely great news for us vegetarians. Do google for more information!

Wow, I would definitely try "Sunny Forest" when I visit it.
Is the menu more on Asian food? Any nice western food on menu?

I had mee pok too, but it was too oily for mine, otherwise it tastes good.

What soup did you have? It came with salted veg and carrot and tofu soup, it kind of wierd combination with the mee pok. But the soup taste good too.

I had satay too, not too sure what, it is mock meat or something else, it was soft but the peanut sauce is peanut with pineapple sauce, not what the usual non-veg satay that we get locally.

Do you think it is hard to have a Veg*n version of our local flavourite - Satay? Our veg*n satay on it own is ok but compare with the real satay, it lacks the smell and the taste (could it be the spices not enough). And the peanut sauce is not quite the same. It does not come with "rice", not even lontong rice! :(

Sorrie, to have written so much. BTW, I met your lovely sister that day :)

Hello Crystal...
Im finally back in Sg. heehee. Anyway, the soup I had was sweet - combi of corn, sweet potato and carrots.. so it suited the mee totally. Maybe they dont have a standard.. The meepok in the afternoon was good.. haha.
I would try the satay if im going back again. Its a tad too ex for lunch everyday la~
Great knowing my sis.. hope to meet up with you soon too!
As to sunny's question, they do have western food on the menu.. i remember they have burger...

Yes, Loving Hut provides great quality vegan/vegetarian dishes at affordable prices. They have opened up their restaurants in Malaysia too.
For our Malaysians counterparts, or even Singaporeans dropping by in Malaysia, we can now enjoy Loving Hut food there too. Their web site is http://www.lovinghutmalaysia.com.
