But Madelyn had recently tried DWJ when her vegan son was in town, and she really wanted me to try it. DWJ has several vegan menu items, so we found plenty to eat! Madelyn suggested we start with an appetizer of Goonmandu — fried Korean dumplings stuffed with clear rice noodles, tofu, and veggies. These were amazing! I loved having rice noodles inside a dumpling!
For my entree, I went with Bibimbap, one of my all-time fave Korean dishes. The vegetarian version had tofu, zucchini, carrot, mushroom, lettuce, sesame oil, and sweet chili paste over white rice.
You can get it in a regular bowl, but I recommend ordering dolsot-style. That means it's served in a hot stone bowl that continues to cook the the white rice so it gets all crispy and crunchy on the bottom.
Love this place! Madelyn ordered the Jobchae, a stir fry of clear noodles with tofu, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, and carrots. It looked really great too, and I'll have to get that next time.
DWJ #2 is located at 2156 Young Ave (in the original Imagine Vegan Cafe location!). Call 901-207-6204.
