The Loving Hut is a vegan restaurant located in Singapore.
Mr Khoo himself had been a vegetarian for the past 10 years and looks healthy and strong,
So what’s Loving Hut about, Mr Khoo?
Loving hut wants to promote veganism and allow it to spread in Singapore!
What is special about the food at Loving Hut?
We try to cater to as many people as we can. So we offer a variety of dishes ranging from Western to Asian and even a fusion of both.
We provide a wide range of vegan foods such as our Sambal Prong (made with Konjuk, a type of seaweed), or our beef rendang that is actually made up of mushrooms!
Who usually comes into Loving Hut?
Loving Hut tends to get crowded on weekends, especially holidays. We get to see a good mix of people -both locals and foreigners.
Do you think veganism is a growing trend in Singapore?
Yes it is – I see so many more vegan establishments popping up in Singapore.
But there is still a challenge in that culturally it is not yet as widely accepted.
There was an 18 year old girl who once came in to eat at Loving Hut. Her mother actually called in to complain because she was so worried that a vegetarian diet was unhealthy for her daughter.
How would you convince people to convert to veganism?
I think people should know about the large amounts of antibiotics being injected into animals these days. They are not the best for you.
Meat consumption also has a huge negative impact on the environment. Unless we hope to remain on this earth, we should make an effort to move towards a whole-foods, plant-based diet.
Do you have any food to recommend for someone visiting Loving Hut for the first time?
Most people come in for our Nyonya Laksa. The sauce that we use is made up of a blend of herbs in-house.
Together with our white noodles, Tofu, and Konjuk(seaweed) “prawns”, it makes for a great dish!
You should also try our Soba sald. It is really healthy for you and is low in fat. The vinaigrette that we use is made up of a bend of sesame oil, balsimic vinegar, soya sauce, and olive oil.
Yum! Well thank you for your time Mr Khoo!
# P.S I tried the Banana Leaf Nasi Campur. It came with a spicy and sweet eggplant dish and a side of mushroom “Beef” Rendang. The brown rice that came with the dish was finished with some coconut oil that is all so flavorful!.
