Sorak Garden Korean restaurant in Annandale

  • e

A friend of mine wants Korean food for her birthday, and another friend recommended Sorak Garden. But a couple of people that might come to her birthday are vegetarians, will they be able to find anything on the menu that they can eat?

I'd appreciate any info, thanks,

  1. I have not eaten at that particular restaurant -- my wife and I usually go to Hee Been in Annandale, and I recommend that highly. Still, we eat Korean food regularly, and I am confident that your vegetarian friends will find plenty to eat, particularly if they eat fish.

    Even if they are strict vegetarians, they should at least be able to get pan-fried vegetable dumplings (mandoo), scallion pancakes (pajun), and cellophane noodles (japchae) with vegetables.

    1. Sorak Garden is very good, and I believe you will be able to find suitable vegetarian dishes, especially among some of the Japanese-style dishes on the menu. Some of their soups may seem vegetarian, but their stock is usually meat-based, so be careful.
