Takoma’s New Korean Eatery Serves Vegan Tacos, Hoagies, and Noodle Dishes

Seoul Food D.C.’s debut brick-and-mortar restaurant showcases kimchi, avocado, and bean croquettes

Seoul Food D.C. has evolved from roving food truck to gas station eatery to family-friendly neighborhood restaurant with its new outpost in Takoma Park (7302 Carroll Avenue).

The homegrown Korean eatery focuses on now-familiar offerings including scallion pancakes, sticky rice-filled bowls of egg-topped bibimbap, and fusion burritos. But the kitchen doesn’t stop there — enticing customers curious about meat-free eating with selections ranging from kimchi-pesto pasta and sandwiches stuffed with bean-based vegan croquettes bolstered by cauliflower slaw to vegetarian sushi and shiitake mushroom-tofu tacos. Spicy chicken quesadillas, beef bulgogi hoagies dressed with Sriracha mayo, and vegan lemon whoopie pies round out the menu.

Customers are welcome to work assorted proteins — including marinated beef, pork, chicken, tofu, mushrooms, and kimchi — into the featured rice bowls and specialty dishes.

Following a staggered roll out, the restaurant has now settled into its regular schedule. The new Seoul Food D.C. is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday.

Status: Certified open. 7302 Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park, Md.; website.
