Goodbye Mimi & Kelly’s and Random Vegan Eats in Seoul

I was recently asked by one of my fave Seoul-centered blogs, My Seoul Searching, to contribute a post about my top vegan eats in Seoul, which I was happy to do!  You can check it out here.  Anyhow, since writing up my top five recommendations, one of them has closed down, and the quality of another one has slipped.  Total bummer!  I’d been regularly visiting Mimi & Kelly’s to try and work my way through their whole menu when they suddenly announced that they’d be closing.  I didn’t want to waste the photos I’d taken of their awesome vegan comfort food, though, so I’m posting them regardless.  Anyway, hopefully they’ll be able to reopen in a new location soon!

Tokyo 2015: More Vegan Eats!

While it seems like more and more vegan restaurants in Seoul are shutting down (Loving Hut Thien Dang, Achasan Loving Hut, Garobee, New Start Buffet, and Mimi & Kelly’s have all disappeared within the past couple of years,) Tokyo’s vegan and healthy-eating scene seems to be growing!  When I was scoping out HappyCow prior to our Tokyo trip, I was so surprised by the amount of new restaurants and cafes which had popped up within the past year.  That’s gotta be a good sign for sure!  First things first, though: a trip to my all-time favorite veg-friendly hang-out, Pure Cafe in Aoyama! ♡
