I'm newly obsessed, and need to know where I can get some Korean food. I've been to Biwa and thought the bibimbap was good, but I want to try other things! And for less money! My searches are yielding few results. Anyone know of any good spots?

I don't think I've had much Korean out in Portland besides cart food (speaking of...is the kimchi at Koi Fusion vegan these days? Is this place on Alberta new? http://yogio.weebly.com/menu.html.. Korean Twist downtown has a veg option I'm pretty sure is vegan, but definitely something I'd ask twice about when ordering), but I really just came here to say that ONE DAY I WILL GO TO THE KOREAN TOFU HOUSE IN SEATTLE. http://www.veganscore.com/2009/10/gimme-kimchi.html

I really just came in here to tell you all that you should go to the 52nd Tofu House in Seattle. It is sooooo good. I go there anytime I can stay up late enough.

Sorry, I know this was not helpful in the Portland forum. But I couldn't resist.

I thought Yogio closed? If not I'll give it a shot, I just thought I saw that for some reason?

Now I want to go to Seattle

Right? I was outside the restaurant making sad faces and one of the neighbors came out and said, "Are you vegan? That's totally a bummer for you that it's closed." Tell me about it, dude.

Sorry, hijacking the Portland thread again. I'll retreat to the Seattle thread.

This place is outside of Olympia and is pretty vegan friendly.

maybe it's not closed...for good?! booooo


The Noodle House cart on SW 10th & Washington is also Korean-run. There's maybe two vegan options, and they're pretty simple (which is good because there's a bit of a language concern), but dang, the noodles are so fresh and good.

I've heard that Toji on SE Hawthorne is NOT veg-friendly, but, I haven't been. Just word of mouth.

Hi Jdfunks,

Someone asked on twitter about Koi Fusion's kimchi and they are not vegan.

I found a Vegan Kimchi vendor at Portland Farmers Market. I forgot their name, but they are the only Kimchi vendor there. I asked if their kimchis are vegan and they said yes. :D.

If you're thinking of the same kimchi vendor I am, you have to be sure you get the right jar of kimchi--they make a vegan version and a fish sauce version of at least their spicy cabbage.

Pastabake,

Oooh good to know. It might be because I tried the Daikon one. I will double check before I buy one next time.
