Guest Blogger: Vegan4Life – Loving Hut- East Victoria Park, Perth

7 Nov
It seems that VBU! is big in Australia, have to love international blogs, it gives me great hope that there are vegans spreading the good word everywhere. Our newest VBU! blogger is Xanthi, author of the blog Vegan4Life. Here she is in her own words, “Born into a Greek family, I was a reluctant meat eater throughout childhood. I disliked animal product on the whole, yet was forced to consume them. As an adult, I learned about the horrors of factory farming and about animal sentience. Thankfully, I was able to go my own way and finally become a vegetarian. In the last few years, I flirted with veganism…until I found out the nitty gritty of what actually goes on in the dairy industry. From then on, it has been veganism, all the way for me and eventually, for my partner. With this blog, I hope to offer useful information specific to people living in Perth, Australia – be they vegans, vegetarians, people with egg, gluten or dairy allergies, etc. And although the focus is on Perth, I am sure there is plenty of content here that will be of interest to people living elsewhere.” Please follow Xanthi by checking out her blog and Twitter. Welcome Xanthi!

After having lunch at Loving Hut in Victoria Park, my partner, a friend, and I had to check out the sister restaurant in East Victoria Park.
Again, the decor was light and pleasing, and the staff were friendly.
We had a hard time to choose what we wanted for entree and mains, as there was so much choice.
Between us, we had the spring rolls, the steamed dumplings and samosas.

All were delicious and gone rather quickly between us. I don’t tend to drink while I eat, but my partner ordered a drink which I tasted and enjoyed. it was the ‘Golden Sunlight’ which is mixture of pineapple juice and coconut cream, with a scoop of vegan vanilla icecream on the top. It was heavenly!

For the main meal, I opted for the Special Fried Clear Noodles which consisted of cabbage, shitake mushrooms, carrot, tofu and noodles. They were tasty and presented beautifully. My partner ordered the Spaghetti Carbonara which I eyed off enviously, given its creamy sauce and mushrooms. This dish also came with a salad on the side. Our friend chose the Satay Tofu which had capsicum, cauliflower, broccoli, and carrot in a peanut sauce, with steamed rice on the side. She said it was enjoyable.

Having polished off our mains, we found that we were too full to fit in dessert but the cakes at the front counter just looked soooo good! It was lucky for us that they did takeaway, so we asked for a slice of the vegan tiramisu, to take home. That cake was a slice of heaven! It was big enough for my partner and I to share and enjoyed it to the last crumb! Sadly, I was so intent on trying it, that I forgot to take a photo of it! But here are some photos of the mains we had…

Loving Hut, East Victoria Park are situated on 64A Etwell Street and are open Wednesdays through to Sundays, 5-9pm.
Again, my only gripe about this place is that it is too far from my home but I have to admit, they are worth the trip.
