Seoul Food: Balwoo Gongyang

Just before I headed South Korea, I was lucky enough to run into the always lovely Hana Choi, who very generously connected me to her also lovely friend Sarah Lee--a food/design/travel blogger and girl-about-town who had recently relocated from Chicago to Seoul.

Sarah and I chatted via email a bit before Danny and I left, and we made plans to meet for a lunch at Balwoo Gongyang, a restaurant in the city's Insandong neighborhood. (Which, incidentally, has great art galleries, shopping, and general people-watching--place it on your Seoul travel to-do list ASAP.)

Ten (ten!) courses of mind-blowing vegetarian food later, we felt like we had known each other for ages. I honestly can't tell you all that we had (if it was placed in front of me, I just happily ate it), but it was definitely one of the top meals I had during my week away. (So thanks, Sarah--and by extension, Hana. Delish!)

P.S. Be sure to check out Sarah's blog at SeoulInTheCity.com. (That's her above. Isn't she the cutest?) Also cute? Hana, natch. Hit her up at StyleFare.com.

I'm not a vegetarian but these veggies really look so delicious! I love how Koreans prepare their food because they always make sure that it has balance. And although you haven't really taken a shot of every dish you ate it's clear that you've enjoyed your meal.
