Review Summary:

I've had Buddhist cuisine a few times but never like this.  In the past it felt like it was weeds and mushrooms, lots of green and gray, like eating the grass clipping bag after mowing the lawn.  Baru takes it somewhere, dare I say, sophisticated.  And it's delicious!  I'm addicted to the Ju-Jeon-Boori, molecule thin slices of fruits and vegetables that have been dried in a way to make them just like chips.  I could eat a whole bag of those.  The set menu comes out with dishes that are too beautiful to eat, surprising in textures and whimsical.  This was a vegetarian meal that made me feel satiated and opened my mind.  Especially the Omija-Tangsu, with sweet-and-sour crispy coated mushrooms done Korean-Chinese style.  The set menu goes for 53,000 won per person.  Bring a camera.

NOTE: It's also spelled "Balwoo," but that's idiotic. That's not how it's pronounced.
