Veggie Holic
I made my second trip to Veggie Holic bakery this past weekend!

Veggie Holic
They had a lot more goodies in stock this time than the previous visit, but unfortunately, I’m still waiting on their new shipment of soy yogurt to come in~ Oh well, there were still plenty of other delights to keep my occupied.

These blueberry pastries actually have muffins baked inside them! Woah~

Veggie Holic
Everything at this bakery is vegan, except for this one section of non-vegan cookies with the “cookie” stickers on them. I’m not sure why they have non-vegan things, when they’re supposed to be a vegan bakery… Anyway, now you know~~

There were so many things I wanted to get, but I restrained myself this time and just got myself one blueberry muffin. I took it to ‘Jass Cafe’ which is en route to Veggie Holic from the subway station, and enjoyed it with some cawfee~

You might be wondering, “if that’s a blueberry muffin, where are the blueberries?!” Well, um, I was thinking the same thing. I was expecting to see lots of gooey whole blueberries inside, but only found about three whole ones that had sunk to the bottom. Since blueberries are expensive in Korea, I think they just mashed or pureed some and mixed it into the batter to get the blueberry flavor and grey/purple color. :( Moreover, I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I found that the muffin left a strange slick feeling on my tongue. It made my mouth feel a bit plasticky, probably due to the nondairy shortening or the oil they use (anyone else experience this?). So that was kind of weird, but once I got over it, it didn’t bother me too much. I still ate the whole thing. :)

So I’ve now tried all three of their muffins: the pumpkin, chocolate, and this blueberry one. Without a doubt, my favorite is the chocolate (like that was a tough choice…).

  1. What a great looking bakery! What's the pink bread? It looks like it would taste of childhood!

  2. I have got that same feeling in my mouth from a cranberry bread I made using Chia seed gel instead of eggs. But once you get used to that feel, the bread was awesome

  3. ohmygoodness! when i was in korea this summer, i lived in a guesthouse right near cafe jass! and i've been to cafe jass and el table :) haha

  4. The pink bread is their raspberry bread~ It tastes delicious!! :)

  5. A muffin baked inside of a pastry may, in fact, be the best thing I've ever heard.
