Korea's street food culture is big. 🥡But normally, it's hardly accesible to vegetarians, not to mention vegans... 🚫🌱 Maybe here's some great news for you, though: Since last winter 2018, there's a vegan restaurant, which sells typical Korean street food VEGANIZED! 😯
Maru Jayeonsik Kimbap (마루 자연식 김밥)
It is located along the shopping street of Insadong inside the area called "Maru" 마루, next to the main road.
There, you can find such things as 🚫🐟 fake fish cake (오뎅 / 핫바), 🚫🐓 spicy soy chicken (콩치킨), 🚫🥓 kimbap, 🚫🐖 fried dumplings🥟 (mandu 만두), rice cakes in 🌶chili sauce (tteok-bokki 떡볶이), thick noodle soup🍲 (udong 우동) etc.
Prices seem to be similar to regular street food - a stick of fake fish cake starts at 1500 KRW and a bowl of Udong noodle soup for 5000 KRW is the "priciest" item on the menu.
Tip: If you ordered tteok-bokki and udong, the leftover chili sauce also goes great with the noodles.... 🤤
They say, they use mainly Korean ingredients and do not add chemical flavor enhancers or colorants. I believe this is true, because even the radish pickle (danmuji 단무지) bears the distinct scent of real gardenia seed pods (치자) and has overall a different appearance and taste of regular store-bought variants. Some might consider such foods "junk food", others simply find it addictive.... And now, finally, more people can get a taste of this part of Korean culture. 😋🥡
