Eating Out*: Loving Hut

*Before COVID.

Loving Hut in Brisbane was one of the first vegan restaurants to open when I moved back, and it was right near the location I was working at that time. It was fate! I ate there so much initially. Then I started to explore other places as they opened, and would just pop back in every now and then. But at the start of this year, I found myself going back more and more. You can see other posts I have made about Loving Hut here.

Two of my favourite things - Summer Rolls and Beijing Black Bean.

I tried this fun Green Tea Frappe one day. It was good, though the whipped cream they used on top was coconut based so I didn't eat that.

I am generally not a huge fan of the desserts there. When they first opened they had really nice desserts, but then they just kind of went meh. But they have started having carrot cake and it is really nice!

Crescent Dumplings are always a solid choice!

Finally, Singapore Noodles. This was on the menu when they originally opened, and I loved them so much. Then they just took them off the menu. No explanation. Once I went to their Christmas Buffet and they had them there, which was a happy day indeed. Then, earlier this year, I walked in to see them back on the menu! I like to think it was all the times I wrote 'Bring back Singapore Noodles' in the suggestion box over the last few years. Anyway, they are delicious. A bit oily, but so tasty and so good.

Loving Hut is currently open for takeaway and is doing deliveries on Saturday evenings as a special service during lockdown.

Dim Sim

Dim Sim tucked in for an afternoon nap on our bed. The pink and white crocheted blanket was made for me by my grandmother when I was little, and I still have it and love it all these years later.


  1. I bought some rice noodles last time I was at the store--no clear direction; it was toward the end of my shopping trip and I think I'd just started grabbing stuff. Now I want Singapore noodles, and I can probably make some!

    1. Oh yes, do it! It is definitely one of my favourite noodle dishes.

  2. Oooh everything looks so good, and I would totally take your coconut whip for you! :-) I tried to go to a Loving Hut in Atlanta on a visit there, but we couldn't find it! The GPS took us somewhere weird, and we called the restaurant for directions. But there was a language barrier, and it just didn't work out. Bummed cause I really wanted to eat there!

    1. Oh, that is a bummer! It is fun to visit them in different places!

  3. There was a Loving Hut in Seattle, and I always wanted to eat there and never did. Add that to my list of regrets!
    I love Singapore noodles so much!
    I love that Dim Sim is napping in such a special blanket!

    1. I haven't been to LH in Seattle on my previous trips, but I hope to one day.

      I was thinking about the blanket as I was typing and blown away that 38 years later it was being used by my child and also is my favourite colour!

  4. The crescent dumplings look great, and hooray for the Singapore noodles being back on the menu!
    Dim Sim looks so cute & cozy in that blanket!

    1. She was so cute and cozy that she tricked me into having a nap with her!
