Default Vegetarian Korea

Hello!

I have compiled an extensive list of vegetarian (organic and vegan included) restaurants in Korea. It's all here:
http://www.freewebs.com/vegetariankorea/index.htm
Even if you're not veggie, you may enjoy some of these places!

If you have a Korea blog or website, PLEASE, please, find it in your heart and schedule to link my site and much good karma is bound to come your way.

Peace,

Sonia

Oooh, Eric, take them to Sanchon in Seoul!! I even took my non-veg sis there! Excellent temple food (you get what you pay for, and it doesn't come cheap) but the whole performance and Korean experience. . .oooh.

Beware of the shell at the bottom of the tofu soup. There's anchovy sauce in 99% of everything you eat.

Always a good reminder-- almost all (at least the traditional cabbage) kim'chi is made with anchovy sauce and/or shrimp. The soybean soup is a mixed bag, though it's not often, if ever, made with seafood, beef or chicken broth. However, as the previous post points out, it is often made with clams, which will always be left in the bottom. As the salty soybean taste is overpowering, if this is a concern, you'd best fish around with your spoon. Another note: the soybean soup with tofu/순두부 is much more likely to contain the (offending) clams.

If you are vegetarian or vegan, your best bet is to check out the places on my website The main page has several warnings, but the Korean Vegetarian movement is growing in leaps and bounds. They are affiliated with International Vegan and Vegetarian societies and they understand 100%!! Their websites are also listed on my site, but are only in Korean. Also, I was unable to register with my resident #. Be aware, too, that in Korea, perhaps moreso than in the West, organic food cost more, and most vegetarian restaurants are a little more pricey than bibimbap on the corner.

Peace.

Your use of the expression (fish around) is very good. I'll remember that the next time I have to teach idioms.

Maybe next time someone slips some fish in your vegan dish you might want to say

"I smell something fishy",

I remember the first time I had pizza with anchovies yuk. Despite all my skills. I was not able to fish them all out.

What are some of the big companies in Korea that make organic/vegetarian food? Is Pulmuone such a somapny?

And I know Yuginong is the word for organic but i rarely see it on fruits and vegetables. is there another word that they use and put on produce to label it organic?
