Loving Hut #3



Heavenly Salad. Very evident South Eastern flavours. The prawns (vegan) actually taste like prawns. Served with Vegan Prawn chips. yummy. Quite a lot of salad for a side dish.



Sweet and sour soup. A light style of dish. I recommend to have it with rice.



Braised fish pot. I quite like this. Tasted a lot like fish. The only criticism i have is that it should have been a little more flaky to mimic the texture of fish. Otherwise a nice dish.

Vegan Dim Sims.

I found these to be Mushy and flavourless unfortunately.


Steamed Vegan Buns.



In contrast to my previous visit, I did not enjoy the food quite as much as the last time. Generally I do like the food at Loving Hut. As always the staff are very friendly.

As always I intend to provide more reviews in future.


The Bentley – Vegetarian Tasting Menu

I took my partner to The Bentley on the weekend for her first mothers day. The lighting is very dark, and the photos don’t really do the food justice.

White Chocolate + Apple Sorbet + Fennel



Aerated Chocolate + Fig Leaf Ice Cream + Lemon Aspen



Honey Comb Chocolate to finish.

Many Vegetarian/Vegan menus out there focus too heavily on mimicking various meat dishes. The Vegetarian tasting menu at Bentley truly highlights the essence of the vegetable.

The Zucchini + Borlotti Beans + Squash + Nasturtium was definitely a highlight.

If I could be slightly picky – the Eggplant + Leek + Shemiji Mushrooms + Rye was a little on the salty side. Otherwise a fantastic menu.



Ungaro Raw

Found this place in Rozelle on the weekend.




So we popped in.




One of their Green Juices. It was a little warm. A little ice would have made it better.



Raw Vegan Lasagna. They used Zucchini slices instead of pasta sheets. Very nice.  The dressing/sauce is what makes this dish.




Ainsley Harriott: Sundried Tomato & Garlic Cous Cous

Found this in the supermarket today. Costs about $2.50AUD and contains two packets in it.

Basically you empty the contents of the satchet into a bowl, pour some hot water, wait, then fluff it up. Pretty easy. Pretty average tasting. But good if you are after a cheap and easy meal at work.
