Korean BBQ & Vegan – Old Street

“Udon” know how happy I am to see more vegan Korean food 😍 {ad – press sample}

Swipe to the end to see *just* how happy 🙃

Enter @koreanbbqvegan – London’s newest Korean restaurant with a whole page worth of vegan options 🌱

Here’s what I ate:

🌱Crispy tofu teriyaki w/ stir fried veg
💭Order again? Yes. Loved this so much. Nice crispy coating with sticky skin with soft, silken tofu inside and a sticky sweet sauce. Good portion size too.

🍜 Yaki soba with veg and homemade sweet & savoury sauce
💰£8.95 (+£1.20 to add tofu)
💭Order again? Yes. A nice hearty dish. Really liked the sauce!

🍲 Yachae bibimbap w/ rice, mixed veggies & Korean spicy sauce
💰£8.95 (+£1.20 to add tofu)
💭Order again? No. Not a terrible dish but it felt a bit bland. Bit oilier than the other dishes too

🍲 Toppoki – fried rice cakes w/ mixed veg in a spicy sauce
💭Order again? Yes. What a unique dish! The rice cakes have an unusual chewy texture which I personally loved. The sauce was beautiful too – just the right amount of spice and sweetness for me

🥟 Vegan quinoa dumplings
💭Order again? Yes. Well stuffed with a nice, crisp coating, not greasy at all

🍠Sweet potato tempura
💭Order again? No. This was more for my friend as I don’t love tempura and am not the biggest sweet potato lover. However, my friend loved it!

Also worth mentioning they do serve vegan kimchi but they didn’t have any in stock when we visited 😭 Same goes for the tofu & edamame nuggets!

They’re also adding grills to tables soon (one just for vegans) where you grill your veg & vegan meat yourself 🍖
