First Review by smvegan

Not so good - Edit

My friend and I ordered a 1) "vegan pizza" that was essentially a pre-made crust smothered in pre-made tomato sauce topped with pre-made faux-meat and a 2) vegan steak that was essentially a ball of fried brown rice smothered in BBQ sauce. The one bright point was the vio-life cheese in the steak.

The meal bordered on disgusting.

To add insult the price was 40 000 won. Smile Jo's is undoubtedly the worst vegan restaurant I've eaten in.

yum! - Edit

This restaurant is SUPER hard to find. It's literally in the middle of farmer's fields. And random greenhouses. I went with a korean and still we had trouble finding it. That being said, it's so worth it. We had some delicious zucchini pasta, some deep fried soy protein, and lattes. Everything was so good, including the sauces. The restaurant itself is huge, and the staff are super nice.
