Plant (플랜트)- A Vegan Restaurant in Itaewon, Seoul, South Korea

During my detox, I started researching more about restaurants that offer more vegetables. After hearing many good things about Plant from my friends and Korean Naver blogs, I finally got to visit when I started eating normal lunches again. I loved the food there and I am excited to go back!


Google Maps: Plant (Kitchen), Plant Bakery
Hours: Monday-Saturday 11 am to 10 pm (Closed Sundays)


Plant is a 3 to 5 minute walk from Itaewon Station exit 4. It’s located on the second floor, and on Saturdays you’ll most likely have to write your name on a waiting list.


When I got there on Saturday at 1 pm, all the seats were filled. I finally got seated at around 1:30 and left there at 2:30 but there were still many people waiting in line.


Their menu seems to change every now and then. There were no avocado dishes that I saw on older blog posts. Their pastas are available after 5 pm.

Their cakes were not on the menu, but when I went they had these:

  • Earl grey tea cake with salted caramel (6,500 KRW)
  • Vanilla berry cake (7,000 KRW)
  • Caramel apple cake (5,500 KRW)
  • Chocolate hazelnut cake (7,000 KRW)
  • Hummingbird cake: pineapple, coconut, banana (7,000 KRW)
  • Banana cream pie (7,000 KRW)
  • Mint choco-oreo cupcake (4,500 KRW)
  • Key lime pie (7,000 KRW)

The Food

Plant Cheeseburger (13,000 KRW). I would definitely order this again! The burger tasted similar to the one from Vegetus, but I liked the side salad from Vegetus more 😉

Plant veggie patty, cashew-based cheese sauce, romaine, tomato, sprouts, sriracha aioli, yellow mustard with a side salad.
Green salad mix, house-made hummus, roasted kabocha squash, cherry tomato, nuts, and seeds, agave mustard dressing, hemp seeds, toasted multigrain bread.

Hummus and Roasted Squash Salad (14,500 KRW). This was an excellent choice as well. The kabocha squash was so sweet by itself!

Carrot Juice– carrot, apple, ginger (7,000 KRW)
This carrot juice is great for people who love ginger.

Vanilla Berry Cake (7,000 KRW)
This cake was too sweet for my taste and the chocolate overpowered the vanilla and berry flavors. I wouldn’t order this again but I still enjoyed it.

Looking forward to trying the Chili Cheeseburger next time!
