Valentine's Day doesn't have to be all about sugary candies and steak dinners. A desire to try something new for Valentine's Day inspires some couples to search for a dining experience offering healthier choices.. One popular restaurant favorite is Loving Hut, a fast-growing international vegan chain, with a Houston location at 2825 South Kirkwood Road #100 in Houston.
Loving Hut was created with a vision that all beings could live in peace, love and harmony with each other and the planet. Sounds like the perfect Valentine's Day theme. Houston's location, one of only three in Texas, offers gourmet cuisine made with wholesome vegan ingredients at reasonable prices. Everything they serve is vegan so you don't have to search through the menu or ask for specially prepared dishes. They also offer some items with gluten free and soy free options. This restaurant has been praised for its clean environment, friendly staff, and delicious dishes. .
The Loving Hut menu offers so many appetizers, soups, salads, combos, entrees, side dishes, and desserts, but the Golden BBQ Vermicelli, Seaweed Ocean, and Silken Moonlight seem to be favorites. A Valentine's Day couple may enjoy Loving Hut's signature dish, the Spicy Cha Cha, for the perfect beginning of a spicy evening.
Though no alcoholic beverages are served here, their selection of hot and cold drinks including juices, teas, coffee, and exotic mixes such as the Mumbai Chai are exciting. Valentine's Day diners may wish to order the Pink Lady drink, a colorful cranberry juice blend with special flavorings and rose petals.
A healthy vegan diet is rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, and fiber while reducing the not-so-romantic saturated fats, risk of obesity, inflammation, cardiovascular disease, and some cancers. The ideal Valentine's Day gift may be one of health and a meal for two at a vegan restaurant appropriately called the Loving Hut.
