I haven’t griped too much about the difficulties of being a veggie in South Korea, because I feel like it’d be kind of obnoxious of me to do so. Korea’s diet is heavily meat based. It’s in their cultural makeup here as well as a huge part of their social world. Of course it’s going to be difficult.
So while I may complain about surprise SPAM and cheese every now and again, I try not to let it get me down. However, whenever a new vegan or vegetarian heavy restaurant opens I get super excited. So least to say, when I saw there was a new vegetarian meal kit service in Seoul… I may have flipped out.
Ranging from W7,500 – 9,500, these meal kits can feed 2-3 people and are chock full of protein, nutrients, and deliciousness! Right now there’s only four kits to choose from, but they all look super tasty! You can grab spaghetti with quinoa, bulgogi lentils, Korean pancakes, and Texas style chili. Everything is vegetarian and I believe these four are also all vegan!
The team behind Mogo is incredibly helpful in answering all questions and are really looking for feedback, so make sure you go and try out one today: the shipping is free is you get three or more!
I got to try out the Cincinatti Spaghetti and the Bulgogi Lentils are waiting for me patiently. Everything about the packaging is adorable and convenient.
Each box comes with a description and explanation of the dish, list of ingredients you have, and full instructions. Everything is separated out for you, and the steps are crystal clear. I was also sent a few packs of their custom 4-alarm spice mix… and let me tell you… that stuff is spiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicy. It’s really good great flavor, but my poor tongue. So… use that with caution, haha.
You can watch my vlog on making the spaghetti below!
You really get a LOT of food for the price here, and I cannot recommend them enough. All the ingredients were fresh and exceptionally tasty. I had no problem finishing the dish (my burner was another story, get HOT you darn thing!), and my friend Nicky and I had giant portions and there’s still leftovers!
Huge thanks to Mogo for sending me these to try out, I can’t eat to eat the Bulgogi lentils *__*! You can find Mogo online at:
