Calling all vegetarians! Life in Korea can be challenging as a vegetarian, even more so as a vegan. So when friend introduced me to Loving Hut in Seomyeon, I was thrilled! And then I was equally devastated by it’s recent closure. The following week I was summoned to a teacher’s lunch, and as we all piled into a couple of cars I was informed that we were going to a vegetarian restaurant. Now, when a group of Koreans announce such a thing to me, I take it with a pinch of salt! Perhaps they mean no beef or pork, or perhaps only small pieces of meat mixed through the dish, but not PROPER vegetarian!!! So imagine my utter surprise, and delight, when we pulled up at a Loving Hut!
