FINALLY! We heard your calls, vegans and vegetarians! For all of our FAPFAPs, we’ve shown you delicious, amazing, sexy Korean food, but for some of you, it’s all forbidden fruit, because it was all meaty and fishy. Today, we will eat something in Korea with no meat, no fish, and no forbidden fruit! Heck: this is even no dairy! Today, we go vegan!
Now, yes, we know that this isn’t regular Korean food, and that this is a specialized location that you can’t just get from anywhere. For example, with our Samgyeopsal video, if you don’t go to that particular restaurant, you can at least go to another restaurant in your area and get something similar. With this video, though, if you don’t go here, then your options are rather limited. THAT’S OK THOUGH! We’ll show you, one day, how to eat vegetarian-ly with typical Korean food that you can order anywhere. Today, we just wanted to try something special.
Why not just show you regular Korean food that’s vegetarian that you can get anywhere? Well, because it’s a bit of a struggle, we’ve found. Some food isn’t strictly vegetarian, even if there’s no visible meat in it, you know? It could have been prepared with meat. Dokbokki, for example, is vegetarian, but it’s boiled with fish cakes. Sure, you can pick off the fish cakes easily, but it’s not really prepared in a vegetarian environment. So, depending on how disciplined you are in your vegetarian diet, you might run into some difficulties. Here, we went to the strictest of vegetarian/vegan restaurants to show you an option you have in Korea. We’ll decrease in level of difficulty with upcoming FAPFAPs :D
Ok! So, we showed you how to walk there. How about a map?
Boom! That was a map! Also, we got more useful pictures. Check this out: you want to see the menu? WE GOT YOU THE MENU! Click on it to see it full-sized:
Though, I’m not sure what they mean by “You Can Ade” That’s a bit beyond us.
So, there you go. Vegan and Vegetarian food in Korea! Small issue we ran into: Loving Hut closes every weekday between 3:30 and 4:30. We didn’t know that, and we got there at, like, 2:45. FFFUUUUUU! We had to rush our filming, so we didn’t get many good shots of the restaurant and all. We just ran up in there, ordered, and eated. Yes, I just wrote eated rather than “ate” because eated sounds cuter :D
Lastly, because of our diets, we don’t eat rice anymore. So vegetarians might have it easier here if they just eat rice and the veggie side dishes, buuuut seeing as we don’t eat rice, it’ll kinda suck for us to make a video about it. Yeah!
Oh! And bloopers. We didn’t mess up that much this time, but Martina did get some punches in there :D
