When ordering at a traditional Korean diner or barbecue restaurant, which dishes can normally be modified to be vegan? I know that many Korean soups often have seafood as a base, even if tofu is the primary protein.
I agree with the sentiments of the above comments. I usually end up having to order something un-traditional (ex. salad).
I have noticed many places are starting to offer vegan options in the US, probably because it appears to be cool now and can be charged a premium, so now I have good luck with finding: Mandu (Dumplings), Hobakjuk (Pumpkin Porridge) or things you can easily make vegan like Japchae (Korean sweet potato noodles ordered w/o the traditional pork).
Hope that helps!
