Loving Hut Phoenix

Phoenix
$$$$

Protein bowls and almond milk smoothies have their charm, but we’re not afraid to admit that vegan food can get tiresome. Loving Hut puts the oomph back in meat-free food by flinging Vietnamese flavors across the globe to Phoenix and including them in a menu of appetizers, soups, sandwiches, and burgers. Come here with a group so that you can sample as much of the menu as possible; start with Golden Spring Rolls, pan-fried dumplings, and wonton soup, and dive into more substantial plates like the banh mi sandwich with sliced marinated veg-protein. It’s understandable if you’re hesitant about trying this traditional sandwich sans pork, but remember: love is meat-blind.
