Only one vegan snack

The chap-ssal-tteok here is good, but it is the only vegan option available. Get there early, by the late afternoon, there are less varieties from which to choose.

Pros: Convenient,if you're in the mall

Cons: Only one vegan food option

Why is this here?

There’s nothing special about this place. It’s the same stuff you can find in hundreds of bakeries in Seoul, and any vegan products are there purely by accident. This one actually has fewer accidentally-vegan products than most bakeries in Korea. It shouldn’t be here, unless we start listing all bakeries in Korea.

Not a vegan bakery.

As far as I can tell with my limited Korean it’s only the chap-ssal-tteok that are vegan. And that’s purely accidental. I wouldn’t go out of my way to find this.

Not easy to find, but good!

Definitely had to look at pictures to compare, as there aren’t any English titles in this place, but they are very good! A very great and affordable option.

Pros: Very filling , CHEAP

Cons: Not many options, Only in Korean
