Good food, big portions - Edit

Located in the heart of Insadong, a traditional tourist spot with lots of gift shops, street food, tea houses and trinket shops. They serve a variety of traditional vegan Korean and Chinese foods you would normally see everywhere in Korea, but all vegan. They use mock meats in a variety of their dishes to create those traditional flavors. I highly recommend the 현미쌈밥 which is mock meat in a spicy sauce that is served with lettuce cups, rice and a variety of daily side dishes. I have also tried the classic bibimbap set which is all veggies for those looking for a more whole-foods meal

Pros: big portions, lots of side dishes, lots of variety (Korean, Chinese, some Western)

Cons: The ladies that work there can be impatient, Lots of soy-based foods (for those avoiding)

delicious - Edit

The food is delicious and very well presented. The space is very comfortable, cozy and traditionally decorated. Sometimes there are many tourists in the restaurant being way too loud and disrespectful but at least that doesn't take away from the great meal.

A peaceful haven in a busy city - Edit

While the whole area is an eye candy and you slowly relax more and more while wandering through the small alleys this peacefulness is culminating in this place. And if you look for a place to have an extensive trial of traditional Korean cuisine without all the unvegan hazzle in other places (where not even the Kimchi is veg), look no further. You’ll want to spend all day here just sitting on the carpet, dozing off and ordering more whenever your stomach is ready

Pros: Yum, Cozy, Artsy

Didn’t expect that there is vegan kbbq! - Edit

This restaurant is from the huge vegan company in Korea. (I always order many stuff from there, so good!) Their foods are amazing (they have vegan kbbq!) but sometimes people who work in there are not really friendly. The restaurant is really busy at lunch and dinner time, so visit little earlier than that time!

Pros: tasty, korean, location

My go to restaurant in Seoul. - Edit

I fell in love with their Spicy Tofu Soup. It was freezing in Seoul when I was there and there was nothing like finishing a long, cold walk and having that soup to warm me up. I was also traveling solo. When the restaurant was quiet I had a table to myself or if it was busy I would be seated at a group table with other solo travelers or people in very small groups. I could either put my headphones on and keep to myself or chat with the other people at the table.

Pros: Good serving sizes. Very reasonably priced.

Cons: Floor seating, not good for people with bad knees,

Rare Korean Classics - Edit

I was happy to eat all the Korean foods I haven't had since going vegan, including bulgogi barbeque, mandu dumplings, and soondubu soup. Everything comes with delicious vegan side dishes. The building is a historic residence built in old Korean style, for extra atmosphere.

Pros: Vegan versions of Korean favorites, Historic atmosphere

Delicious - Edit

This place has a very traditional style. You take your shoes off and sit on the floor. This was the first all vegan place I ate at in Korea. It was nice to experience vegan Korean food since most dishes are centered around meat. I had mushroom soup and fried dumplings and they were delicious. I will definitely come back when I am in this part of town!

Asian food made vegan - Edit

The dumplings and jiggae are very good! They also sell additional vegan groceries at the register, definitely worth the visit. Note that they close between 3:30-5 most days.

Decent food Terrible service - Edit

The 국수 tasted like plastic, the rest was good but absolutely terrible service, the lady was so mad and made me feel uncomfortable. I asked for a wet tissue and she made me this bitchy face and gave me the tissue with her own hands (when before another worker put the dry tissue on a plate and then water without touching it). Apart of that she never replied when i asked something, one lady gave me rice when i already had it and she start to discuss in chinese with the other worker infront of me. Ufff horrible. Wont come back here never.

Pros: Good if you are craving korean food

Cons: Terrible service

very nice atmosphere and authentic Korean cuisine - Edit

This quaint spot is hidden in the side alleys. Once inside you will find low tables with cushions on the floor. The portions were generous and the food very good. Loved the kimchi that came as a side dish to the soup. The restaurant also sells some frozen faux meats and cheese. Complimentary tea and water and free wifi.

cutlet 😬 - Edit

Oh Lordy. The cutlet here is out of this world! It’s a very cute little place tucked into a corner in Insadong. The server was very nice. It is a traditional korean restaurant so shows off at the door and you sit in the floor on pillows.
