Had the pleasure of dining with a few friends in Hongdae at a farm-to-table restaurant called Cafe Slobbie (pronounced “Slow-bee,” stands for “slow but better”). They are one of the few places that support the growing slow food movement, sourcing their ingredients from local farmers and focusing on mainly vegan/vegetarian dishes. In addition to being a healthy, eco-friendly restaurant, they also support various causes domestically and globally. At home, they train and support underprivileged youth through the Young Chef’s internship and mentoring program. Abroad, proceeds from their in-house Eco-Shop, which sells handcrafted items and kitchenware, support children in Cambodia. And if this weren’t enough, they hold regular cooking classes, publish a bi-monthly magazine focusing on healthier eating and living, and much more.
