Osegye Hyang, can be hard to find, as it is located at the end of a small alley from the main street of Insadong. The restaurant is very traditional, being in a Hanok. Once you arrive you must remove your shoes, and find a seat on a pillow on the floor. The food at Osegye Hyang is really delicious, having all sorts of Vegan dishes with Korean flavors.

We found Veganz so randomly by walking around Gangnam in Rodeo Street. There is a big sign in front of the restaurant with the name “VEGANZ”. You can’t miss it. The restaurant is rather small, with only a few seats. Veganz is a great place if you are craving for a burger. The avocado Burger is really yummy!

On top of that, we quite like this part of Gangnam, with great cafes around and cool shops.

Grocery Cafe Qyun is perhaps one of the cutest Vegan Restaurants in Seoul. Located near Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul, Qyun is set a cute and very quiet little neighborhood. It is the perfect spot if you want to enjoy a relaxing lunch in Seoul.

We ordered the curry dish with Tempeh, which was out of this world! Delicious. We also had the nato bean sandwich, which was really good, yet a little small to order by itself. We recommend ordering a sandwich + a soup if you want to have enough food.

Overall, we had an excellent time in Grocery Cafe Qyun. We went there after a short hike at the Bukhansan, it was e perfect for us!

Vegan restaurants in Seoul

Seoul, the capital of South Korea, has become increasingly vegan-friendly in recent years. While traditional Korean cuisine heavily features meat and animal products, the city has seen a growing interest in vegan and vegetarian options.

Seoul now boasts a growing number of vegan and vegetarian restaurants and cafes that cater to plant-based diets. These establishments serve a variety of dishes, from traditional Korean vegan dishes to international options.

Many supermarkets and health food stores in Seoul now stock a wider range of vegan products and ingredients, making it easier for vegans to cook at home.

There is also a growing awareness of veganism and an interest in plant-based diets among the younger population in Seoul. This has led to increased demand for vegan options in restaurants and stores.
