PPURI on the plate (CLOSED)

Those who doubt how delicious vegan food can be have yet to try the vegan pizza at PPURI on the plate. The pizza dough is made from either whole wheat or brown rice and the sauce is topped with several pan-fried seasonal vegetables, potatoes, one type of root plant and organic soy cheese. Flavorful without being greasy, this gluten-free, sugar-free and organic delicacy is enough to make any skeptic change his or her mind. The only downfall? Food items such as the vegan pizza and vegan sushi are only available when PPURI runs their pop-up restaurant several times a month (a monthly schedule is posted on their Facebook page via which you can also make reservations). The rest of the time, PPURI operates as a vegan café offering desserts, such as Korean brown rice cake or Earl Grey cake, paired with their caffeine-free Grains Coffee (made with barley, malted barley, chicory and rye). The owners of PPURI, married couple Lee Yoon-seo and Kang Dae-woong, are not only dedicated vegans but also conscious about eating nutritious, healthy food that’s part of a macrobiotic diet. “Since we rely so heavily on SNS, we’re really close to a lot of our customers. For some who are gluten-free, it’s really hard for them to dine out and they can quickly become regulars.”
