See & Do Tours
the tendency to consume by cost and satisfaction without giving up personal values
The concept of consumption value can be found in many different places. By typing in hashtag keywords like #halal, #vegetarian, or #vegan on social media, it's clear that there's a rising trend and interest in reducing meat consumption for reasons like personal belief, environmental and health concerns. Although a fairly new concept in Korea, many Koreans have fallen in love with halal food in Seoul. Let us introduce some of the places to go for some sweet vegan or halal desserts!
Throughout history, there has been nothing else like food to break boundaries between people of different background and culture. Kervan Bakery is a bakery specializing in Turkish desserts, a type of food rarely found in Korea. Although they don’t have a written Korean menu, the staff speaks Korean fluently, allowing visitors to easily order their food. Every dessert sold in this store is halal-certified. Using only halal-certified ingredients in its food, Muslim visitors or customers with dietary restriction can enjoy these desserts without a worry. Visitors are highly recommended to try out their Turkish Delight (Lokum) and 40-layered honey Baklava.
