Korean Kimchi & Gimbap.

Kimchi = pickled/preserved vegetables usually spicy/salty. A must have side dish in Korea. It's status is basically like sambal/chilies in soysauce in the heart of Malaysians.

Gimbap = Korean rice roll. The ones in pic. consists of pickled radish, carrots, egg omelette, cucumber & spicy red pepper sauce, sesame seeds.

Sometimes, I would pop by KTO/Korea Tourism Organization KL to learn from their free Korean cooking class. My cooking class teacher is a well known Korean chef :), a shy timid lady, I am always proud to see her on stage sharing her love & cooking in Malaysia.

I would say that my top 3 favourite vegetarian cuisine are: Korean, Vietnamese & Thai. Seriously nothing beats their salad, pickles & soup in that area. What's your favourite?

Wow so you can cook Korean dishes! I love Korean food too, any nice vegetarian Korean places? I only know of one at Kepong.

Oh, they have free Korean cooking classes? That's great! Actually most of the Korean and Thai restaurants that we known are non vegetarian... Would be great if all of you can share when you came across!☺

Yup :) back thn it was expensive to eat out so I experimented some & along the way discovered KTO at KL to learn some tips. Sometimes I would visit this place called Restoran Haeun Khon, Amcorp Mall.
They serve Korean & Japanese food the portion are bigger than usual & the price is also lower than other places at KL. You can tell them "Vegetarian". But they have a lot of non-meat dishes.

I especially love their Tofu dishes. Do try that & also their Korean/Japanese pizza. It takes time for them to prep. but the portion is very filling. It's unique & nice, can sit on the floor or chair. Pretty dark but comfortable. I used to bring another vegan coworker there after our visits to the many book stores there.

Warning: Most of their waiters & chefs are non-Malaysians, I've had Thais & Koreans & sometimes got communication problem. Need to speak slow & easy. E.g. you don't want ice in your drink or you want to order the pizza first before other items.

Yes. The free Korean classes at KTO usually teach 2 types of dishes. So usually 1 of it is non-meat e.g. vege soup, desserts, pancake or even rice dumplings. Unfortunately, can't attend for all of it.
