Great choice for fast Korean food The entire restaurant is gluten free (except for the beer). Takes the concern out of gluten contamination. Nice range of choices, the food is delicious. Purple rice and both the chicken and beef were excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff.
DON’T DRINK THE BEER! It’s NOT gluten free. The food was great though! I really appreciate having a safe & enjoyable place to eat when traveling. Thank you Seoul Spice for being that place. And thank you findmeglutenfree for getting me there
So many options! All so good. It's like an Asian Chipotle. 100% of the menu is gluten-free and delicious. (Okay they may offer 2-3 bottled beers that are NOT Gluten Free, but they also offer gluten free beers and wine.) I wish they had other locations outside of DC, closer to NJ or even NYC/Philly. 10/10 would recommend and return for 2nds.
When I saw gluten removed beer, I was disappointed. When I saw rooster sauce that wasn't made in house, I got worried. I asked about the sauce on my dish, and it has white vinegar. So, a no-gos for now. I'm taking my food home for a friend instead of eating it. The owner was super nice with a clear understanding of Celaics' han, and he may change to another vinegar. Just make sure to ask. I was hoping this place would be in table grills, lots of little snacks, buckwheat soba, and hell broths. I had to cool my inner Anthony Bourdain - it's a Chipotle style build a rice bowl place with Korean flavors. The good news is that it's a concept that easily scales, so we may have many more opening once things are tuned in at the flagship. I'm all for more safe spots.
The ONLY negative I can think of this place is that it's in the middle of nowhere (NOMA). The food is DELICIOUS and the prices are really reasonable. I stick with the chicken bowls, but I went to a gluten free tasting recently and it was all good. The place is very celiac friendly and everything is labeled. I'm pretty sure it's all gluten free, but the staff is super knowledgable.
I can't say enough about the food. GLUTEN-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE EVERYTHINGEE! For regular celiac sufferers, everything should be fair game. I cannot additionally do corn in any form or brown rice, so I stayed simple and ordered the white rice bowl with chicken, kale and kimchee. Then doused it with that authentic Sriracha rooster sauce, because I could read the ingredients on the label, and there was no corn sweetner.Now the staff - that's a different matter. Don't expect a high level of competency. There is probably high turnover so a well-oiled production machine this is not. Neither is it a friendly barista-greeting kind of place. Wait in line because it gets busy, and despite the setbacks, the food is unfortunately worth it.
Seoul spice is a new restaurant by the NOMA metro. Think of a chipotle like concept but with Korean inspired flair. Everything on the menu is gluten free....everything. Great rice bowls and korittos (Asian inspired nori wrapped burritos). Beef bulgogi, Teri chicken, spicy pork and others are the standard proteins and then you pick veg fillings, including Kim chi. Everything I have had is great and safe.....check it out.
