I didn’t know what to expect from Hu. Actually I did, I thought it was a sit down restaurant, but I was completely wrong. It’s more of a cafeteria-style place, like you pick and pay and go sit down (if you can find a place). Thankfully Kris was already there and had bagged us seats, fighting off aggressive New Yorkers.
Oh, it’s also ridiculously healthy. They’re all about minimal ingredients and only using things you know and can pronounce. Back before the mass market ruined food, etc.
There was so much to choose from, but Ming and I saw the Bowl Station and went straight for it.
The bowls are great – you can pick however many bases and match it with however many toppings.
Ming’s base was raw vegetables, topped with half chicken, half mushrooms. Mine was half quinoa, half root vegetable mash, then topped with half chicken, half mushrooms.
I also got a bowl of kale and broccoli for some extra green. Kris wanted some Cauliflower Rice, which turned out to be INSANELY good!
We payed then snuck off to find Kris who was sat upstairs.
After we all embraced with open arms as if we were long lost friends and chatting away, I kind of forgot about the food, which was probably one of the first times that’s ever happened?
I gave it some attention before it got cold, then the challenge of eating whilst talking and not getting things in my teeth began.
Oh yeah, I forgot to say I got cilantro, peanuts and onions sprinkled on top as well, with no sauce.
It was SO SO SO good. I mean you must be like eh that looks pretty average. But it was insane.
I tried to get a shot of the mash and quinoa business going on for you.
It’s just a perfect, relaxed place for some bloody fantastic food. Everything in this building is amazing for you as well, so no matter what you choose you can’t go wrong.
Ming and I went to buy some goodies before we left as well. I turned to the granola.
And I don’t mean we bought one. We bought a lot.
