Vegan in Korea: Oh Se Gae Hyang Restaurant (오세계향)

Down a cute back alley in the Insadong district of Seoul lies a couple of vegan restaurants that offer a variety of korean dishes made in a way that is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those who just want to try something new.

One of my dear friends here is vegetarian, so we decided to try out the restaurant knowing she would have a lot more to choose from than regular restaurants (It is difficult to find things here that are not meat or fish based, even those dishes that do not have apparent meat in them)

The restaurant was very cool inside, offering a very natural themed decor. Please be aware that this restaurant only has floor seating, so wear your good socks and comfortable pants!

The menu had a very good variety of foods on it, from dumplings and soups to Korean style Chinese and Japanese food. We settled on Bibimbap (a rice dish) Sundubu Jjigae (Soft tofu stew) and Jjampong (a spicy Chinese style soup usually made with seafood) The table was provided with a bunch of side dishes too (for free as always!)

Sundubu Jjigae

The service was a little slow compared to other korean restaurants, however the restaurant was full to the brim with customers. The price was average for the area we were eating in, each dish costing W9,000 – W10,000 on average. For 3 of us it cost around W37,000 including a side dish of dumplings! More than enough to fill us up!
