vegan-friendly Korean restaurant

Seoul Korean restaurant is a traditional Korean restaurant that tries to accommodate vegetarians. While they have a number of vegan or easily made vegan items on the menu (minus the egg), there are several items marked as being vegetarian that are listed to contain beef or fish. Tell your server that you are vegetarian and they will be sure to make sure your dish contains no meat.

Some veg items include: Korean dumpling hot pot with kimchee, vegetables and udon noodles; vegetable bi bim bob, various vegetarian soups and appetizers (dumplings, steamed tofu, boiled tofu with kimchee, etc).

Seoul also features a "Korean BBQ and Vegetarian Lunch Buffet" for $7.95. The menu varies but usually features a vegan noodle/veggie dish, fried rice, tofu/veggie soup, and one other veg main dish.

I saw the word "vegetarian" in their lunch buffet sign so I just had to stop. Korean food is often not particularly vegan friendly so I was pretty excited. While they did have several vegetarian (which were also all vegan) items on the buffet, I don't think it was enough to claim to be a "Korean BBQ AND vegetarian buffet".

Two of the four dishes were sides (rice and noodles). The third dish was a tofu-corn soup, which was so-so and not particularly filling. Stir fried mushrooms and onions seemed to be the main veg option, which might delight some vegetarians, but seriously disappointed me since I think mushrooms are the most disgusting foods on earth. I really liked the noodles, but had to add hot sauce, "special sauce" (soy sauce, sesame oil, and scallions), and raw carrots and bean sprouts from the tiny salad bar.

$8 wasn't a bad price for the lunch buffet, but I wouldn't return unless there was another veg entree (which wasn't mushroom). I had my 4-year old niece with me, and since they didn't seem to have a set price for a kids buffet (some restaurants allow kids to eat free), so the waitress said she'd charge me half price, which seemed fair. Unfortunately, my niece didn't like the food and only had about 1/4 cup of noodles and a few slices of carrots.
