Our travels South brought us to Prague which, with its ever growing tourism metropolis, the choice of dining venues available to such exotic minorities as myself went up to somewhere around 7! But we quickly became regulars at a little known vegan chain called Loving Hut.
Loving Hut, if you didn’t know (I didn’t) is the world’s largest international vegan fast food chain with over 200 outlets providing delicious and affordable vegan food! So as you can imagine we were all over that little beauty. It was founded by a Vietnamese man with a view to cut down on greenhouse gases and as its rather slogan happy decor suggests, to live alongside eachother in peace, love and harmony.
The menu comprised of a variety international foods, including schnitzel and mash, Thai curry, vietnamese poh and a number of different style tofu burgers including cheese an teryaki. Further research into the chain reveals that some menus offer vegan versions of different meats in their complimentary styles such as barbecue vegan ribs and veggie drumsticks which personally I’m not sure how I feel about. A bit like eating someone’s prosthetic leg.
One thing’s for sure though, I’ll definitely be seeking out this culinary gem in the future. Check out where you can find your nearest outlet here. And, if this weren’t enough, Austria (the bugger!) is actually home to the world’s first Loving Hut hotel!
Upon discovering this news, I felt like I did when I was 7 and received a Sylvanian Families Mansion for my birthday (so middle class I know). That’s a whole building to sleep and feed a lot of vegans! And to promote compassionate and low impact living in a way only a select few hotels do. But that number is growing and now according to this website http://www.veggie-hotels.com/1-1-Home.html such venues exist on every continent! So you have no excuse!
