*Cafeterias offering breakfast : Korean-style breakfast is not very different from other meals except that it is not spicy.
Each cafeteria provides 2 or 3 different meal options. At cafeterias 2 and 4, you can create your own meal by choosing and purchasing each dish separately. The weekly menu is printed in Korean in the SNU newspaper and on the websites http://www.snuco.com and http://www.snulife.com.
iconTips for Vegetarians
Korean cuisine is generally thought of as quite healthy with vegetables abundant in every meal. However, almost every dish also has meat, fish, shellfish or other kinds of animal-derived ingredients.
Even foods which don't noticeably contain meat often contain ingredients such as beef powder or fish sauce, including Kimchi. This can make it very difficult for strict vegetarians and vegans. Vegetarian students may want to use restaurants No. 2 and 4 so that they can choose their soup and side dishes. Also, restaurant No.1 offers vegetarian dishes on Wednesdays.
At the moment, vegetarians are a very minor group in Korea. However, with growing health concerns and the animal rights movement, vegetarian restaurants are becoming more popular.
iconRestaurants On Campus
Adjusting to unfamiliar food can be difficult and may make you feel homesick. To help you during these times, SNU provides an array of restaurants on campus to suit various tastes.
The Hoam Faculty House has a restaurant run by a hotel, which provides high quality, western-style meals. If you are in the mood for Japanese food, you can go to the 3rd floor of the Dongwon House to enjoy dishes like sushi, noodles and fried vegetables. For Chinese food, you can try the Keumryong, or "Golden Dragon," in building No. 311, which includes three full-course dinners in addition to the regular menu.
