O’Sulloc is a Tea house from Jeju with several branches across South Korea. Their teas are sold in department stores and you can go to the tea museum when you visit Jeju Island. As a matcha lover, O’Sulloc is like a second home for me when I visit Seoul. They have the best Soy green tea latte I had so far, made with Soy milk from Jeju and my favorite O-Fredo, which is a Green tea Frappe topped with a scoop of ice cream.

The most original and impressive street food can be found in South Korea: from rainbow cotton candy to more traditional specialties, it is food heaven at any time of the day. And like fashion, there are trends: currently it seems like Churros are very popular as I often see people forming a line in Itaewon and Apgujeong. I really appreciate how food is presented with creativity and how delicious it is. I recently discovered those strawberry mochi covered with red bean paste in Myoung-dong and also the best Tteokbokki -떡볶이 in Samcheong-dong area. Tteokbokki can be spicy and hot, if you are not used to eat this kind of food, be cautious. It reminds me of my childhood, and it is a dish which is enjoyed at any moment of the day.
If you want to try a traditional korean dessert, have a « Ho-ppang » -호빵, which is rice cake filled with honey or brown sugar. It is a sweet treat any Korean has tried at least once during their childhood.
I came across many vegetarians in Seoul. Finding vegan dishes in South Korea can be a challenge with the language barrier. All the food pictured in this article are suitable for them.
