Veggie friendly korean spot!

Posted on 09 / 26 / 2014

An adorable place with its homey touches, I was glad to see "vegan friendly" right on the center window when I got there. But do ask for the veggie menu since it's not the first one they give you. It's been a long time since I've had a Korean tofu soup and was really happy to have it, piping hot, full of silky tofu, delightfully spicy, chock full of veggies, and no beef broth smothering everything! I ordered the three mushroom base, another option being the wonton tofu soup. In case you don't want the egg cracked in they bring it on the side, keeping it vegan.
The side dishes are the nice standards, some pickled radishes, burdock,kimchee, some greens, and they're all refillable! We ordered veggie potstickers for an appetizer and they were passable, not fantastic, but ok. And hey, veggie.
My soup was fantastic, the spice amount I wanted and had plenty of shiitake, anoki, and regular mushrooms as well as the velvety tofu I love....
The only downside was the fusion fare, the Korean burritos are probably not ordered often and didn't seem freshly prepared. I would recommend staying with the familiar korean fare and you'll be fine. And full. Thumbs up for a nice lunch spot, especially given their effort for having an entire veg menu.

Pros: The effort, Veggie versions hard to find elsewhere , Delicious tofu
Cons: Could be fresher

Kimchi = happiness

Sura is one of those places that you stumble on two blocks from your house and are really sad that you've lived there for 18 months and never known about it. Plenty of options for vegans, and they'll make your kimchi tofu soup as spicy as you can handle. A simple, inexpensive Korean BBQ menu, all the tacos, soups, and noodles can be veganized, and $1 taco Tuesdays!
