Happy new year everyone! Our next meet-up is going to be this Saturday (February 15th), from 14:00 at Wazwan restaurant in Itaewon.

Wazwan does some excellent Indian food (and can accommodate vegans) and is reasonably priced. It’s on the same street as the mosque – go out of Itaewon Station (line 6), exit 3, walk straight for a short way and take your first right. Go up the hill, past the foreign food market and What the Book and then turn left (continuing up the hill). Wazwan is on the left just after the mosque, or just meet some other Veggie Club members outside exit 3 at 13:50.

Wazwan’s website is:

Don’t forget, we’re trying to decentralise Veggie Club meeting organisation so if you’d like to take a month on and arrange an event just go ahead and ask!

This year’s Christmas potluck gathering will be held at Natanya and Fiona’s place on Saturday December 13th from 7:00 pm in Haebangchon, Seoul.

‘Tis is the season for excess, so expect quite a few people and lots of delicious home-made food! Bring enough food and drink for yourself plus others, animal product-free if possible as both Fiona and Natanya (plus many Veggie Club members) are vegan. If previous years are anything to go by, a wonderful evening of culinary delights and nattering is in store.

Full event details are on the Facebook group. If you aren’t on Facebook and would like to come, please leave a comment and we will e-mail you directions.

Veggie Club in Eloquence and on the radio! by John

We’ve been getting all the publicity this month, with two in-depth features in local publications.

First up is Eloquence Magazine, one of the monthly free expat publications. December’s issue has a two-page special written by Daniel Gray, based on interviews with Amy, Kenneth and members of the Korean Vegetarian Club (there are some extra restaurant recommendations on the Eloquence Facebook group). You can pick up Eloquence at most expat hangouts (e.g. most places in Itaewon), and it’s full of other useful information too!

You can read the full article at:

If you haven’t been listening to Seoul’s English-language expat-friendly radio station tbs eFM 101.3, you still have time to tune in and catch us! Amy and John gave an interview about being vegetarian in Korea, including typical challenges and some Korean foods that appear vegetarian but really aren’t. The interview will broadcast on Saturday December 13th on the Soul of Asia show with Sarah Kim (11:00-12:00), and should be the perfect warm-up to our Christmas get-together!
