Loving Hut vegetarian restaurant – Valencia

Calle del Conde de Altea, 44
bajo izquierda

Cheap vegan food is not to be sniffed at. Especially in Spain where it’s often difficult to find vegetarian food, let alone vegan food.

At first Loving Hut seems to be too good to be true; veggie burgers, burritos, salads and desserts – all vegan and all cheap. Except… the food isn’t much cop and the feel of it seems strangely David Lynch-like – and not in a good way.

You can go for the tasting menu which means you will get tortilla, vegetables tempura, sushi and some other items, plus a dessert but the portions are absurdly small.

Sounds great? Sadly, everything was either poor, or mediocre at best.

There’s not really much here that I would consider healthy, it is very much meatless versions of unhealthy fast food. They use a lot of oil. The emphasis is definitely on vegan rather than healthy.

The servers are friendly and efficient and we didn’t have to wait long to be served.

It’s located on a lovely bustling little street full of lots of other bars and cafes. Inside, it also appears to lack the ‘loving’ in the title. It’s simply furnished and lacks charm. They also have a TV running a consistent schedule of what appeared to be quite evangelical footage. The place is clean and feels clinical.

In conclusion, nice idea but the food was bland and unhealthy. Lack of ambience and cult-like atmosphere was a little disconcerting.

Takeaway service is also available. Although I’d recommend taking yourself away to either Kimpira or La Lluna, elsewhere in the city. Sadly the food here might be cheap,and the philosophy of not hurting animals is commendable, but the quality is dreadful and the ambience is unpleasant. Probably best to go somewhere else.
