Shindongyang (신동양, 新東陽) is a Chinese restaurant in Yeouido which is very vegetarian-friendly; though the regular meat-and-seafood menu is larger, you may also request to see the vegetarian menu, which has about 60 dishes, soups, and appetizers and three course menus. The vegetarian dishes feature plenty of faux meat versions of Koreanized Chinese dishes like tangsuyuk and jjajangmyeon, as well as more traditional fare. Whether vegetarian or not, prices are about the same -- main dishes come in two sizes, all around 10 to 15,000 won, with the cheapest just 4,500 and the most expensive going up to 50,000; appetizers are mostly around 6,000. The course menus run from 30,000 to 70,000 and feature up to ten dishes.
It's a fairly large place, with an extra dining hall, and has been run by Chinese immigrants for three generations running. Korea, Mandarin, and English are spoken; the main menu features all three languages but the vegetarian menu has no English, though they will assist you. To get there, go out Yeouido Station exit 5; it will be on the top floor of the first building on your right.
