You may have heard that Seoul is not the most vegan-friendly city. So its vegan festival wouldn't be any good, right?
As a vegan foodie, the 2019 6th Vegan Festival Korea in Seoul impressed me with great food and great vibes.
The festival was separated in two sections, food and non-food. You will be glad to hear that there's a good variety of food, like burgers, desserts and more traditional Korean food. For non-food stall, you can find cruelty-free fashion, cosmetics, and more.
Read on to see some of the food and tips if you are planning to go next year.
- Go Early. Some foods will be sold out pretty early especially the desserts.
- Bring your utensils, and bags to take away the food you like.
- Outside the festival, the participating cafes and restaurants may close on that day. So check their socials before going.

What Can You Find At Vegan Festival Korea
Dalyang Vegan Cafe
This popular stall sells burgers and soft serve ice cream. This shrimp burger has sweet chili sauce, mayo, and other veggies inside. They also have a beef burger and a chicken burger.
THE RAW by twins
Whenever there are desserts, there is a line.
THE RAW by twins had a long queue for the raw donuts with jam filling inside. They ran out by 2-3pm!
Fried rice cake with spicy Korean sauce
For just 1000 won, this traditional snack is cheap and delicious. Ask for less sauce if you can't handle spicy food (like me).
Little Ghost Co
This stall sells delicious nut milk coffee with ice cream. Discount if you bring your own tumblr. They also sell homemade nut butter.
Michelle's Cookie Factory
Satisfy your cooking cravings from this stall. They have flavors like matcha marshmallow, choc-chip and earl grey.
Other than this vegan earl grey milk tea, they also sell vegan cakes and desserts (with a long queue).
This stall sells fried snacks (soy meatball and fried tempeh) and desserts (custard tart and cakes). Their matcha spread is very delicious as well.
Got a slightly chewy cookie from this stall. Everything in this stall is gluten free.
