It’s been a bit busy these days so I haven’t been able to blog for more than a whole week! :( But I’m back and have some pics to share~~
A friend and I recently went to The Hungry Dog for a light lunch in Haebangchon. We initially wanted to go to Casablanca but they were closed so we went to the Hungry Dog instead. They have a lot of meat-filled options, but sadly not too many veggie choices. I heard that they have a good lentil soup there, but upon asking the server we learmed that the veggies are sautéed in ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter’ which is not vegan. It’s a shame because it would be so easy for them to make that soup vegan by just using olive oil, that way everyone could eat it.
Directions to The Hungry Dog: Noksapyeong Station, line 6, exit 2. Walk straight down the road and follow as it veers left to Haebangchon road. Pass the kimchi pots lining the left side. The Hungry Dog will be on your left, about a 3-minute walk after the kimchi pots.
Address: 45-13 1F, Yongsan-dong 2-ga, Yongsan-gu, 140-842 Seoul, South Korea
One of the highlights of last week was having the pleasure of baking for Jane McGonigal, a scientist, researcher, writer, Ted Talk speaker,and SF vegan! I watched her Ted Talk which was really interesting and inspiring, so I was stoked to know that she’s vegan and follows my blog~! She was visiting Korea from San Francisco and ordered a chocolate cake with strawberry frosting for her and her friends to share.
Finally, I’ve been meaning to mention this earlier, but for the past two months I’ve had vegan recipe published in the Korean Bakery magazine! This month’s issue includes two vegan muffin recipes. Savory corn muffins and peach streusel muffins. And next month’s will be scones! I’m really excited and honored to be a part of the mag, and that I get to introduce more koreans to vegan baking. It’s especially humbling since most of the other bakers featured in there have professional pastry training. On shelves at Kyobo and other major book stores! :)
Anyway, thanks for reading, and hope you have a good Monday. Let’s kick some bootay this week!
