MEATLESS, EASY ON THE MESSAGE
Washington Post, Lavanya Ramanathan, August 31, 2012
Photos of famed vegetarians, including Gandhi, Pam Anderson, Paul McCartney and Bill Clinton, hover over diners at Loving Hut in Falls Church, making for fun gazing but also providing a tip-off of the meal that awaits.
Faux-meat haters, look away: Everything at Loving Hut is vegan, meaning it’s free of meat and dairy. Instead, most dishes are sprinkled with pink “shrimp” made from yam flour, smoky strips of “ham” or chewy wheat gluten “beef.”
Vegetarian restaurants in the area frequently fall into two categories: Rockville’s Yuan Fu and Virginia’s Sunflower have served Chinese-influenced fare, while a stretch of Georgia Avenue near Howard University is thick with vegan soul-food joints, such as Everlasting Life Cafe.
Where Loving Hut excels is in the flavors of Southeast Asia.
