A Triumph! And also a Question… by seoulveggieclub

Thanks so much to all who came to the picnic! I’ll collect the pictures, post them on a Photobucket account, and email you the address so you can send me your wild objections, blackmail threats and bribes (i.e., if there are any photos you don’t want posted here, you’ll be able to let me know.)

The next meeting will be on the 1st Saturday of the month, which falls on June 2nd. Here’s the question:

Where would you like to have lunch? I’ve heard a couple people mention a vegetarian restaurant in Insadong, which has been described as delicious but pricey. It might also be nice to have an Indian buffet, so I’ve gotten in touch with a restaurant in Itaewon (Ever Green) who would happily accomodate us. So, what’s it going to be?

I guess our fearless leader is referring to the Sanchon in Insadong. I actually ate their last week with a couple friends, and somehow the total bill for three people was over 75,000 won (they said that their new lunch price is 19,800 won and their dinner show price is 35,200 so there either was tax added on or we got charged extra for asking for too many refills …)

The restaurant is beautiful, has a nice atmosphere, and is definitely worth going to for lunch occasionally(and the traditional Korean dinner show at least once…)

But you kind of get gyped portion-wise when there’s more than two people seated per table…)(They give a lot of food, though, so that may only apply to humongous eaters like me…)

As far as an Indian restaurant goes, I’m reluctant to go to the cheaper Muslim ones (I’m sure that they may have some tasty vegetarian items, but I frankly don’t trust them to be very clean …

The Ashoka (in Hamilton Hotel) is the only one that looks to have a well-trained professional chef and a clean, viewable kitchen …

The vegetarian portion of their buffet is more strictly kept separate from their meat items…
The Ashoka also has a classier atmosphere than the cheaper joints…

They’re also kinda pricey at 25,000 won (for all- you-can-eat buffet…) but it’s not a bad deal compared to the similar-in-class Thai Orchid, which skimps on portions …

Thanks for the feedback, Ron. I like the fact that this place is separate. I don’t have any worries about this Ever Green place, though, and I think they deserve a shot, especially since they’ve offered to accomodate us. If you’re in the neighbourhood, pop in, and let me know if you see any red flags– we can always change the location to across the street.
