Hard to find but food and service was good.
Hard to find but food and service was good.
I visited this restaurant 3 times when I travelled to Seoul couple of weeks ago. It's on a small side street of very popular Insadong street. It's not really a Loving Hut -restaurant, but it is connected to the same ideology. They also sell vegan food products in their small shop.
Food was good. Even though all the food is not Korean, you can experience the Korean way of eating with all the different side dishes (always including kimchi) served with any main dish you order. Also tea is served for free. They have both very spicy and some quite bland dishes.
Service is really nice and friendly. And I found my Lonely Planet -book there well guarded the next day after I forgot it in the restaurant.
You sit on the floor, so you have to leave your shoes on a shelf when entering the restaurant.Pros: Good food and service, Vegan, Central location
I ate a few times at this restuarant. Its located beside Ssazmie-gil. came across this chinese word 尋牛and turn into that street.
Restuarant do serve onion/garlic. Hence, have to tell them specifically. Average meal is around 8000won.
I tried their chinese noodle soup which is on the 1st page of the menu. Its very delicious that i ate the same food back.
They also sell some vegetarian stuff like instant noodle etc.
The only thing is you have to sit on the floor and eat which is the korean style. But i enjoyed thoroughly.
Their side dishes is also delicious. i finish every single food on my plate.
We ate here twice while in Seoul in Aug 2010. It is not specifically focused on Korean food here; can also get Chinese+ type dishes. Fairly inexpensive compared to the other veggie restaurants in the area. Good food, but nothing super special. It is a Ching Hai Supreme Master restaurant - but not called Loving Hut.Pros: value, not just Korean food, quick service
When you're reading the menu and see the pictures of the food, it looks like you're not getting much. However, with the main dish, you get about 5 different side dishes (mostly kimchi) for free--with free refills of those side dishes. So, in reality, you get a large meal for 7000-14000 won (depending on which dish you order--the 7000-8000 won dishes are quite sizable). They use a lot of fake meats, but not all dishes have them. This is up towards the north end of Insadong at the end of a side road to the east of Insadong-Gil (there are other restaurants along this side road). The biggest disadvantage (for some--mainly larger--people) is that the tables are very short and can be hard to sit at.Pros: good food, convenient location for tourists, lots of side dishes/kimchi
Nice enviroment, good food, confirm no onion and garlic, 7000 won food will make you full.
Although they will tell you that everything is vegan, it isn't. I got the company's address off one of the packages of fake meats for sale in another establishment and checked it out. On their English site, ingredients are listed for each product they sell. A lot of them have whey in them. As long as you make up a list of which is which and question carefully, you should be all right. But remember, in this country, things like eggs, pork, ham, and fish are not "meat", so it's not too surprising that "whey" is considered to not be an animal product.
I'm sure that for vegetarians, especially those who like fake meats, this is a fantastic place. But, vegans do need to be more careful.Pros: clean, friendly, good prices
this place was great. dishes start at 7000won, and they have a great selection of veg/mock meats and soups.
the restaurant has a nice set up. there is no smoking and no booze.
i am a fan of mock meats and bean curd, so loved this place. it therefore offers something that other insadong eateries don't. give it a try.
