Woops, ok, so this is one of those restaurant posts that have been sitting in my drafts folder for far too long–several months to be exact. I should really be quicker when it comes to blogging about restaurants here in Seoul because you never know, the next day they might disappear! It seems that there are all these new veg-friendly, healthy, raw, fresh-food shops opening up these days, so much so that it’s a bit hard to keep up. Ya’ll probably don’t even need me to blog about them anymore cuz there are so many more up-to-date resources out there. But what the hey, I’ll still blog about them when I can.
I admit that these days, I don’t venture too far from the Itaewon area for food… There are just so many good places around Itaewon with veggie options, and plus, I don’t have as much free time to go trekking to random neighborhoods in Seoul. But when the owner of March Rabbit visited PLANT and introduced his salad bar restaurant to me, I knew I wanted to check this one out! Oh, and besides, it’s got ‘Rabbit’ in its name.
So much seating! I always get a bit jealous of restaurants with so much seating space, because PLANT is so freaking small. But at the same time, I still love the coziness of plant, so I should just stop comparing. lol
As far as I can remember, they only had one main vegan salad option called the Happy Vegan Rabbit, but you can also build your own salad, and add whatever toppings you want. Also plenty of vegetarian options available.
My order. The vegan salad, with mixed greens, green hummus, lentil salad, barley, and a chunk of tofu. They also normally add croutons, but they weren’t vegan, so they just left that out. This was back in March/April, and I’m not sure what the bread situation is now, so maybe ask in advance. The Popeye green ade was also surprisingly good! Haven’t had a carbonated green juice before– a tad sweeter than I expected but nice and refreshing. Tempted to try this at home. :)
Overall I enjoyed March Rabbit for its freshness and vegan options. I just think it’s cool that there’s a salad bar spot like this one. Hopefully this fresh & green food trend will continue. Yay for eating more veggies, less meat.
