Cafe Sukara is another delight for any vegan. If organic, local, and seasonal produce sound good to you, head straight there for a deliciously healthy meal. Try out their delicious bread, soup and salad set, and you’ll return every day. You will even start dreaming about the crunchiness of the salad, spiciness of the chickpea salad, and the creamy herb spread. Seriously a must-try when in Seoul – vegan or not.

Everest

Restaurant, Indian, $$$
Save to wishlist

While this delicious Indian and Nepali restaurant is not a vegan joint, it does offer quite a great selection of vegan options. The vegan curries are impeccable and priced very reasonably just under 10,000 KRW ($US9). Everest is the ideal place for vegans to meet up with other non-vegan friends as the restaurant offers something for everyone!

산촌 (Sanchon)

Restaurant, Healthy, $$$
Save to wishlist

Sanchon is not only a hotspot for vegans, it is also a hidden tourist attraction and a place locals love to take foreign visitors. The reason for this is that Sanchon is in fact owned by a Buddhist monk. The menu features Buddhist temple food dishes with a twist as it is seasoned with chili and garlic. You can choose between a lunch and dinner set, which comes with countless small banchan, or Korean side dishes.
