What I liked about this place:
For those of you who miss going to a vegan burger joint in your home town, don't worry, Korea also has a great place. Trust me, you don't want to miss out on this place. I had been introduced to this place when it was located back in Dapsimni and was known as Coexistence Vegan Cafe which was one of our first few restaurants featured on Tour De La Vegetarian. Now with the move and the upgrade, it is here in Itaewon as Huggers. The quality hasn't changed, but the menu has. Regardless, this is a great place when you are craving a nice juicy burger with fries.
As you can see they don't just offer burgers, but they also serve some awesome desserts. A couple of my favorites, the marble chocolate cheesecake and the chocolate chip cookie cake, are both perfect with cold soy milk. YUM!
Whatever you decide, you won't be disappointed.
Here's a small gallery of what we've ordered. Give them a try and let us know what you think.
Also don't forget to check out our EVENTS page as we host events at various vegan locations. We look forward to meet you to continue to veg about it.

Go straight till you get to the 1st cross intersection.
Cross the street and continue straight until you see another crosswalk and a huge staircase on the right.

Go up the stairs. Once you reach the top, turn left.
Walk straight towards the apartments, turn RIGHT at the first road way you see.
Continue walking until you see the big Mosque on your right side, keep walking straight.
As you walk straight, you should see a staircase going down.
Take that staircase and follow it till you get to the bottom.
The hill continues to go down until it slightly curves and you will then see Huggers right next to a coffee shop.
