Korean vegetarian cuisine

Korean vegetarian cuisine is linked to the Buddhist traditions that influenced Korean culture from the Goryeo dynasty onwards.cn|date=September 2008 There are hundreds of vegetarian restaurants in Korea although historically they have been local restaurants that are unknown to tourists.fact|date=September 2008 Most have buffets, with cold food, and vegetarian kimchi and tofu being the main features. "Bibimbap" is a common vegan dish. Menus change with seasons. De-alcoholized wine, and fine teas are also served. The Korean tea ceremony is suitable for all vegetarians and vegans, and began with Buddhist influences. All food is eaten with a combination of rather slippery stainless steel oval chopsticks and a long-handled shallow spoon called together "sujeo".fact|date=September 2008

Korean vegetarian restaurants also exist outside Korea, such as Manhattan's Hangawi and Franchia, [cite web|url=http://www.satyamag.com/rest/hangawi.html|title=www.satyamag.com/rest/hangawi.html ] [cite web|url=http://events.nytimes.com/gst/nycguide.html?detail=restaurants&id=1051636714708|title=events.nytimes.com/gst/nycguide.html?detail=restaurants&id=1051636714708 ] and Chicago's Amitabul.
