Place closes at 8:30pm and they pre papare the bimbimbap.

It was alright, there was one vegan option and the bimbimbap was pre made and they offered to remove the meat. I can’t eat food which has touched meat but if you can then your options are.

Pros: Only limited vegan options

Cons: Pre-prepared bimbimbap and they offer to remove., Not able to make fresh bimbimbap.

Good, authentic and affordable

This is a restaurant that offers mainly noodle or soup dishes.

Food is hand-made and pretty good - authentic, comforting Korean food.

Kimchi is refillable according to preference - the regular napa cabbage kimchi contains fish sauce, but the kimchi made of diced radish (kkakdugi 깍두기) is vegan. After telling staff that I don't eat kimchi with fish sauce ("젓갈 들어간 김치 안먹어요."), they brought me an extra serving of vegan kimchi. 😊

On top of that, the servings are pretty large and they even give extras upon request.
For example, vegan Patjuk normally comes with 3-5 rice cakes, but at this location a regular serving of Patjuk is filled with a dozen of rice cakes! Their Patjuk base is also smooth and free from any bean skins - different from other restaurants!

In the summer, they offer Kong-guksu (콩국수), which comes with chewy, hand-made noodles in super thick and creamy soy milk, and then they also separately sell the soy bean broth in bottles.

It is located close to the subway station "Seoul National University" and since it is quite popular among locals, it can get a bit busy/noisy at times.
