Restaurant Recommendation: The Loving Hut

Ever hear the phrase "Don't knock it till you try it"? Well, that phrase can definitely go for both vegetarian/vegan cuisine AND the Loving Hut on Chandler Street in Worcester. As I mentioned before I was a vegetarian for seven years before falling off the wagon, so having a meal that's vegetarian/vegan doesn't bother me. Sometimes it's just good to try something out of the ordinary.

Well, I've passed by the Loving Hut for a while now either on my way to work or driving around Worcester. It was formerly the Buddha Hut but changed it name in the past year or so.

Sydney and I had thought about going to Beatniks that night but found it to be packed. So, we decided since we were in that area to give the Loving Hut a try. She had tried some of their food at the Pets Rock event and really liked it. So, last night seemed like a good time to try one of their meals.

And I have to say it was pretty good!! I think Sydney got the Sweet N' Sour Sensation and I got the Sea Wonder. We both enjoyed our meals. And I have to say, they did an excellent job making it taste like shrimp and scallops. It's not as easy as you think. And yes. I've had real scallops so I know what they taste like. And they made it taste like scallops!!

So, if you're looking to mix it up a little bit and try something you don't usually try, give the Loving Hut a try. It's located on 415 Chandler Street in Worcester, MA.

Reminds me of the old joke about the former prison inmate:

Sitting with a friend in a bar he explains he hasn't been able to enjoy a meal since he's been paroled because years of beatings by the guards have conditioned him to only enjoy food if he's suffering.

The friend is surprised "What-- no Vegan restaurants near you?"

As much as I enjoy my beloved Vegan Whoopie Pies at the Bean Counter and I dig the vegetarian at Udupi give me a good piece of Chicken any day.

Just try and block out the whole Supreme Master thing, which isn't difficult because they aren't pushy at all.

I hear ya. I prefer real chicken over faux chicken. But I don't mind going veg once in while ;-)
