First Review by louispdeville

it was too expensive and a bit disappointing - Edit

I had the vegan burrito and I was kinda disappointed bcuz it didn't taste anyhow special and the burrito was big with lots of beans and I would've preferred more vegetables or something green. But my taste and view is different than others. So don't hesitate to try out. It was also expensive and it could be a bit cheaper. They made a mistake with my order and they didn't apologized much. And thinking that the burrito it self is 9k and with a bit of fries 14k. It's not worth it.

4 stars - Edit

This place is pretty good, I think it's definitely worth a visit if you're in Seoul as it's also super easy to find, just turn down the left street after you pass the big Olive Young on the left side of the street. I wish it came with more options however , as my fajitas weren't very filing but still pretty yum !

Pros: English speaking staff, they have violife

Tasty meal but slightly overpriced! - Edit

Had a vegan burrito plate with potatoes and the plate looked really bland when it arrived... the sauce and burrito we're really good but not as nice as the price would suggest.

lots of vegan options, tasteless - Edit

I was rather disappointed by the fajitas, considering the price (worth 10 bibimpaps). I can tell why the owner didn't remain vegan : he doesn't know how to replace cheese to make the food tasty. Everything was dry and tasteless, like a cliché if what people think a vegan meal is like. More tomato, chili, avocado or soy cream please !

Pros: lots of vegan options

Cons: expensive, tasteless

Delicious and filling - Edit

I ordered the burrito meal (vegan). I got a large burrito stuffed with rice, beans, mushrooms, lettuce, etc. with side portions of rice, refried beans, nachos and home-made chipotle chilli sauce. Really delicious and filling!

The place doesn't have much atmosphere - it's very clearly a fast food joint - but super yummy and healthy fast food, which is perfect if you just want to chow down!

Pros: Tasty, Fast, Great location

Cons: No atmosphere

It's alright - Edit

I get the veggie mushroom burrito with a side of guacamole and chips.

I think it's worth a try but I'm not a huge fan. The burrito is almost all mushrooms. Every time I go I ask for them to add extra rice and beans to the burrito. Never really happens though. To be honest, if I'm in the area and I'm craving a burrito I usually end up at taco bell instead. Sorry locally owned restaurant! I'm a bad person.

It tastes good for Seoul. It's definitely filling (should be for how expensive it is). I just feel like I make a better burrito at home. I'm snooty like that.

Pros: Restaurant knows what vegan is, English speaking staff, Margaritas

Cons: Expensive, Not super delicious, Guacamole is cold, what's up with that?

Good Mexican Restaurant - Edit

I have been here several times and have been very impressed with the vegetarian/vegan options which they have for pretty much everything(possibly everything). I thought maybe it was slightly more expensive than I would have liked. However, considering the food quality and that it is a Mexican restaurant in Korea, I think it's definitely worth it. I thought the food tasted pretty authentic too.

Vegan friendly - Edit

Owner is a former vegan and has recently changed the recipes for the guacamole, rice and beans so they are all vegan. They use a mushroom alternative to meat, no tofu or mock meats. Nearly all the items on the menu can be ordered vegan. Meals cost 8,000-10,000 but were very filling, and tasty if not a little too salty. They also have fresh made corn chips.

Pros: good value, rare mexican vegan, easy to find

Cons: little salty, light on the beans
