Drunken Vegan in Seoul, Korea

Drunken Vegan in Seoul, Korea

Drunken Vegan is a cozy little pub and restaurant located in the Hongdae neighborhood of Seoul. It’s 100% vegan, with an delightfully inventive menu of Korean eats, especially vegan Korean dishes, and some stellar fusion mock meat meals. It’s a treasure.

An Intimate atmosphere

It’s a teensy spot with only a handful of tables close together so it’s a rather intimate dining experience. Oh, and one wall of it is covered in adult toys. So, there’s that. Good eats, drinks, and plenty of interesting conversation starters. Very fun indeed.

Deep fried prawn with chili sauce

This fried shrimp dish drenched in sweet Thai chili sauce is my favorite. Complete with a salad full of fresh greens with a sweet and creamy homemade blueberry dressing.

Fried cauliflower

This colorful and tasty dish is cauliflower chunks breaded in cereal and deep fried. Served with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce, vegetables have never tasted so good.

This pork belly and veggie plate is a veganized version of the popular Korean dish called Samgyeopsal. This version is tasty and meat free.

The classic Italian lasagna plate is a super hearty and filling pasta dish made with tofu, tofu cheese, and even the layers of lasagna noodles are tofu skins. It’s rich, it’s creamy, it’s amazing. You never knew you could love tofu this much.
