The day I turned 30, not only was I hungover, I was hungry. Knowing that my sister is a picky eater, I wanted to go somewhere we both would enjoy. My first thought was Pork Store Cafe, as it is down the street from my house, but you know what? I'm a vegan who is sick of tofu scramble. And if the sis is going to be buying me lunch/brunch, I want it to be memorable. So I chose Loving Hut. (My favorite date to take my perpetual single self on -- Loving Hut grub from the Food Court at the mall and a movie. Yes, I sneak food into the theater. SCANDALOUS.)
I told my sister that I would pay for half of the meal because I planned on ordering the entire menu. All I can say is, that is what I do when every single item on the menu is vegan. How am I supposed to choose what I want? I need to try everything -- that way I can narrow it down in the future.
So, this what happens every time I go out for Chinese/Sushi/Asian food in general: I order A LOT. Whether alone or with others. The waiter/ess is always saying, with wide eyes "Are you sure you need that much?!" Yes, I do. Plus, I'm a Bradley. I was born into a family of eaters. I saw in a movie once, that in Chinese restaurants, a group is supposed to order one less entree than the number of people at the table. Not in my family. We take the number seated and add 3. Maybe more. Obviously this happened at Loving Hut. I even warned the waitress we were going to be ordering a lot. Sometimes, this is why I get delivery. Then the six fortune cookies come and I'm only slightly embarrassed.
Lunch ended with my sister paying for all of it and me leaving the tip. She said "It came to less than I thought it would for ordering half the menu!" Or something like that. Thanks sis!
She also got into an ultra cute convo with the waitress about how everything was so tasty, she couldn't even tell it was vegan! So the waitress gave us recipe books, in which the recipes were way too intricate for even me to follow.
In other news, I totally want to see Horrible Bosses, Crazy Stupid Love, Bad Teacher or Friends With Benefits this upcoming week. Me being a psychic and all, I see more Loving Hut in my very near future.
