Vegan Restaurant opens in Hoegi-dong

Actually, the place., “Simple Waffle,” only serves vegan waffles so far, but the owner, who goes by the name Pooh Lee, has great ambitions. Vegan food is hard to find in Korea, and I think a true Vegan could starve without some help. I stick to vegetables myself, but commonly you find a taste of meat or fish in just about everything.

So it is impressive that there is now a place that calls itself Vegan near Kyung Hee University. In Korea, oddly, eating meat is associated with being modern. Just like throwing away paper cups is somehow “modern.”  I love Korea, but this cultural assumption is one of the great challenges.
