korean food / seoul / 5 superfood and vegan restaurants that will clear your soul – 2273

Recently, a group's opinion that it is necessary to consider “vegetarians” in military diets has continued to be debated on various portals. The fact that the belief in vegetarianism, which was somewhat unfamiliar in Korea, has emerged as such a major issue is a sign that interest and influence in vegetarianism has increased.

In fact, the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a vegetarian is “vegan” means a complete vegetarian who does not eat any animal products, including milk and eggs. There are various types of vegetarianism according to each person's beliefs, from permitted vegan foods to “lacto,” which allows milk and dairy products, “lacto-ovo,” which allows up to eggs, “pesco,” which even allows seafood and fish, “polo vegetarians” that eat chicken, and finally, “flexitarians” that consume red meat depending on the situation.

Among these, “vegans” are leading the recent vegetarian craze, and they are continuing their active social activities by inventing the neologism “veganism.” In line with this, various restaurants with a vegan motto have also sprung up. I thought not only of restaurants that serve vegan food, but also of pubs that offer vegan menus along with bakeries.

Famous vegan restaurants and bakeries include Itaewon PLANT, Seoul Mangwon-dong Uburae-do, Seoul's Mangwon-dong Sunnybread, Yeonnam-dong Breadnista, Mangwon-dong Around Green, Hongdae Sukara, Hannam-dong Monk's Buddha, Itaewon Haebangchon News, Sangsu Slunch, Amsa-dong Pyeongsang-si, Garosu-gil Dunnilk Factory, Dongdaemun Queens Bucket, Seochon Soiloueum, Insadong Balwoo Gongyang, Jongno Ikseon-dong, Jeong Sang-dong Mangwon-dong Gawon, Hapjeong Yamiyomil, Mangwon-dong Dinnerjack, Mangwon-dong Mongtai, Mangwon-dong Cook&Book, Bangbae Pivot, Kyung Hee University Bejian, Songpa Bangi Zero Bakery, Mangwon Point Frederick, Haebangchon Bezetus, Sookdae Cafe Shiva, Sadang Nammi Plant Lab, Grand Hyatt Steakhouse, Songpa Holsom, Hapjeong The Robby Twins, Mangwon-dong Leventane, Hongdae Seoul Bowl, Hannam-dong Route There are Day, Hannam-dong Huggers, Bukchon Root on the Plate, Hannam-dong Salad Seller, Hannam-dong La Ferme, Banpo-dong Palem, Songpa Songridan-gil, Seongbuk-dong Little Mana, Sungshin Women's University Dalnyan, Yangjae Veggie Green, Busan Dongnae Meal, Incheon Songdo Meme, Cheongju Vegan Story Yeonu, Incheon Derby Gining, Gwangju Sujata, Jeju 901. Here are 5 of the best vegan restaurants and vegan bakeries that are popular with vegetarians, superfoods that clear the soul.

“Bread Ernista” began when CEO Iaram, who is allergic to dairy products and eggs, wanted to make bread that he could eat. Instead of flour, gluten, dairy products, sugar, eggs, and preservatives, healthy bread is baked using ingredients such as rice flour, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and natural sweeteners. The signature menu is “half a brownie,” where you can enjoy matcha brownies and chocolate brownies at the same time. The matcha brownie on top has an appealing bitterness of matcha tea and a subtle coconut scent that spreads from the moment you put it in your mouth. Chocolate brownies made from Valrhona or cacao powder have a heavy yet luxurious sweetness. Bread Anista can also be found at the main branch in Yeonnam-dong, as well as branches in Apgujeong and Yeouido.

“News” presents temple food in a fusion style to suit popular tastes. They only stick to pesticide-free, naturally cultivated, and organically grown ingredients, and are purchased directly from farmers in Hoengseong, Hongseong, and Haenam. In line with the concept of temple food, knocking on a wooden table to order adds to the fun of the meal. The signature menu, “Mushroom flavor,” is a soup made from oyster mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, and mushroom mushrooms topped with shiitake mushrooms and Chinese cabbage grilled over an open flame. The thick texture of the soup thoroughly envelops the tongue, and the rich mushroom flavor that spreads fragrant throughout the mouth is exquisite. Please note that course meals consisting of popular menus are also available, and 100% reservation is required.

“Sunny Bread” is a place that uses brown rice flour and rice flour instead of wheat flour to make bread that can be eaten by patients suffering from diabetes, gluten intolerance, and atopic dermatitis. All menus are based on gluten-free products and are divided into vegan products that exclude animal ingredients, and low-carb products with a lower carbohydrate content. The signature menu is the “hey rhubarb tart,” where red rhubarb filling and vegan cream are placed one after the other on a tart paper made from brown rice flour and finished with a crispy crumble. The cream gently envelops the attractive rhubarb filling with its tangy freshness, and the crunchy crumble adds to the fun of chewing. You can check out today's menu on the official Instagram.

“Bezetus” is a place where you can find a variety of vegan dishes such as paninis, salads, homemade burgers, and pasta. The interior of the store, which is decorated in a modern style, is further enhanced by green plants scattered all over the place. The signature menu, “Bezetus Burger,” is an organic bun filled with lentil patties, tomatoes, lettuce, and grilled vegetables (eggplant, onions, mushrooms). Patties made with lentils, chopped vegetables, brown rice, and oats are appealing for their refreshing yet light flavor. I added homemade coriander sauce and vegetarian mayonnaise sauce to make the most of the burger's rich flavor. Along with the burger, plenty of french fries and salad are provided, making it a great place to enjoy a hearty meal.

Various vegetables such as grilled lotus root, sweet pumpkin, eggplant, and asparagus are added as toppings, and the colorful visuals enhance the taste buds to the fullest. The curry has a pleasant flavor, and you can enjoy a deeper flavor by adding a subtle sweetness derived from vegetables. “Rose fusilli,” which combines gluten-free brown rice fusilli with soft rose sauce, and “mushroom pizza,” which has rice flour dough topped with three kinds of mushrooms, are also popular.
