Loving Hut is an international chain of vegan restaurants ruled by Supreme Master Ching Hai, whose teachings insist heaven will be blocked to carnivores, and who might be insane. "Meat is mostly virus," says Supreme Master TV, played on a perpetual loop in Loving Hut. "By eating meat, your diet becomes mostly virus." Servers smile as if their lives depended on it. It's fascinating, in a cult-themed minimalist dinner-theater way, and some of the food is very good—try the corn-doggy "golden stick," the mushu delight, and the jasmine tea. (Loving Hut, 1226 S Jackson St, 726-8669. 11 am–9 pm.)
