Melbourne now has a new Loving Hut restaurant, located right near the Queen Victoria Market in the same space that was previously the White Lotus restaurant. For those unaware, the Loving Hut restaurants are all vegan, with the first Melbourne Loving Hut located in Richmond and the second in Northcote.
The new West Melbourne Loving Hut has a menu based on the Richmond restaurant. The space has been redesigned inside from how White Lotus was set up, and looks more open and bright.
The official opening day was to be tomorrow (September 24th) but an Instagram post by Loving Hut West Melbourne said they were having a pop-up opening on the weekend, so today (Sunday) was their first full trading day. I headed down with my son and ordered the satay skewers:
I loved the Royal Rendang from my last visit to Richmond, so I got that again today along with some rice and roti (I brought a container to take leftovers home as the serving was too big for me to finish off):
I really like the meals at Richmond, so I’m glad I can access the same menu at West Melbourne which is closer to home for me and involves a single journey on public transport. I’d hoped to go back again this coming week and blog some more photos in this review but it’s not looking likely, so I’ll put this post up now to help spread the word of a new all-vegan restaurant in town.
