I didn’t think my schedule allowed me to quickly return to the new Loving Hut West Melbourne so soon after my first visit but turns out I was able to go a couple more times, with company. I’ll sneak in the photos of that first visit again, just to get all the food pictures in one post.
I hadn’t tried a Loving Hut Malaysian char kway teow ($13, gluten free option) and on a solo visit, that’s what I went for. This was pretty good and something I’d probably order again:
When I visited with family, we ordered the crispy delight ($10, add on mayo for $2) for our entree. These are taro and enoki mushrooms in a battered seaweed and beancurd pocket:
My sister and I liked the sound of the Thai eggplant and tofu ($17) described as ‘…rich, spicy fragrant chilli-basil sauce’. Delicious, and not too spicy:
We ordered a second eggplant dish but really because we wanted something from the Thai selections and something from the Malaysian selections. We’d already had the Royal Rendang ($16, gluten free) at Richmond back in June and it’s always hard for us to go past an Assam curry on a menu. This had eggplant as well as beans, pineapple and soy fillet ($16). In hindsight I think one eggplant dish would have been enough, but no matter as this was also pretty good:
From other visits, the Royal Rendang and the satay skewers with peanut sauce ($8, gluten free):
That’s three visits to Loving Hut West Melbourne and we’ve enjoyed our meals every time. Desserts are available now too, we would have ordered the sticky date pudding but had already made plans to pick up something sweet from the Queen Vic market around the corner.
