Indulge in a Temple Food Feast
In a culture that reveres barbecue and uses shrimp paste in everything, it’s hard to imagine many options for vegetarians. Korea, however, has a long history of practicing Buddhism which means temple food restaurants are a good source of veg-friendly cuisine. Temple food focuses on compassionate and healthy methods of cooking. It incorporates local mountain ingredients like wild greens, herbs, roots, and vegetables into simple but sophisticated dishes. In Seoul, there are several centered around Jogyesa Temple in Insadong. Sanchon and Balwoo Gongyang – which was recently awarded a Michelin Star – are two upscale choices that serve multi-course menus composed of dumplings, stews, steamed veggies, kimchi, tofu and savory pancakes.
