Korean vegetarian?

shazay | Jun 13, 2008 12:38 AM

On a trip to Seoul a while back I had one of the most outstanding meals of my life at a Korean Buddhist restaurant. Needless to say, the meal was all vegetarian and the variety was astounding; it didn't take long before our table was covered with plates, bowls, and platters of a huge assortment of delicious, fresh, and simply prepared Korean vegetarian dishes. I've been struggling to find something similar here in New York: I'm not interested in Bibimbap without the beef or fancy tofu places, that's readily available. Hangawi in the city comes close but not really the same. Does anybody have any suggestions as to a restaurant (or even a temple?) offering Korean vegetarian or Buddhist cuisine? The place doesn't have to be restricted to just that but at least part of the menu should reflect a veg positive approach.
