“Veggie Heaven”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

Loving Hut is a vegan chain restaurant with many locations in Korea (you can "google" them in English!). The various locations are not carbon copies-- some are more cafe/luncheon, some are buffets, others (like this) vegan versions of local cuisine. For vegetarians and vegans in Korea, this chain not only provides wonderful reasonably priced food, but also a small selection of vegan and organic groceries to take home and cook. The staff is friendly (though things can get slow during peak times, especially when they have 50% off meat-free Mondays) and they have English menus. I'm not a big fan of veggie-meats, but I love their traditional foods and love that I can eat all the side dishes and know their is no fish paste, etc. I've dined here with many non-veggie friends and colleagues, and they have never been disappointed! There's another vegan buffet just a minute away (walk up the first street to the left by the gas station) by the same "corp" ( a "religious" vegan group SM) FYI.

“Favorite restaurant in Jeonju”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

Loving Hut Seosin is the most conveniently located vegan restaurant in Jeonju being only a short walk from EMart. The friendly owners speak fluent English and are knowledgeable about vegan food and natural products. The food is delicious and very healthy; my favorite is the soy bulgogi; be sure to order it with brown rice instead of white but all the dishes are great. When I first started going here I didn't like white rice but through talking with Ji Hyeon and Henry I learned about how brown rice is better for you and I started eating it there. Now I like brown rice much better. The vegan kimbap or lunch boxes to go are great to take on hiking trips. If you make arrangements in advance you can order large quantities of food for parties, meetings, etc. You can also buy organic products such as shampoo, body lotion, etc there. I learned there that most shampoos have sulfates which make the bubbles in the shampoo but that they are not good for us. You can also buy vegan food there such as vegan dumplings, soy products, etc. The owners are also very knowledgeable about the Jeonju area and Korea in general. The people eating there are a mix of locals and foreigners with many repeat clients and all are very friendly people. Even people who like meat will be impressed with the food here. This is my favorite restaurant not just in Jeonju but in all of Korea.
