Last weekend, I checked out WonderCon at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. This year marked the 25th anniversary of the annual comic book, sci-fi, and popular arts event. (Yes, I’m geeky that way. But not as geeky as the people who dress up in costume and walk around in character. Bless them, they certain make the whole experience that much more interesting.)
Rather than eat the convention center food and wonder about the veganess of it all, I took a short walk over to the Loving Hut located in the food court of the Westfield Shopping Center.
I ordered the Grilled Philly Sandwich – marinated soy protein with BBQ sauce, vegan mayo, tomato and lettuce for $8.95. It was good. The bread is nice, warm and crispy; the insides had a meaty texture with good flavor. It came with a little container of cole slaw which had a nice twang to it and a couple of orange slices.
Since my order was to-go, I got a pager that lights up when the food is ready. But it didn’t take long at all, probably between five to ten minutes. There’s also a small buffet besides the sandwiches and salads on the menu. I actually like this location better than the Loving Hut in Palo Alto. And it’s definitely way better than eating at the convention center.
