There isn’t much competition for Amitabul, the only all-vegan Korean restaurant in Chicago, which has endured for more than fifteen years, eventually relocating to Norwood Park on North Milwaukee Avenue after initially opening up in Lakeview. By drawing from traditional dishes, mixing noodles, nuts, fresh vegetables and spices, Amitabul does not use the wheat-meat substitutes usually found in vegan dishes. And if you’re under the weather, order up Dr. K’s Cure All soup to knock out any cold.
