Vegetarian-friendly recommendations in Seoul

I'm visiting Seoul from the San Francisco area for a week in April. Any recommendation vegetarian-friendly places with interesting food? I'm open to all suggestions ranging from from hole-in-the-wall places to Michelin-starred restaurants. (The only constraint being vegetarian-friendly menus.) This is my first trip to Seoul and Korea.

  1. Did you end up finding any good vegetarian friendly restaurants while you were in Seoul that are worth recommending? I'm visiting Seoul from San Francisco in September and I'm going with a friend who is vegetarian. We are looking for anything great (hole-in-the-wall to Michelin starred restaurants). Thanks for any suggestions.

    1. Yes, I did end up finding one absolutely amazing place: Sanchon.


      I think the food here was comparable to a Michelin one-star meal, although *way* cheaper. The sheer number of different courses is a little overwhelming, so make sure you're hungry when you go.

      There are a couple of other places in Insadong that were less memorable.
