One of the hidden vegan gems that I discovered by doing vegan travel research in advance was the Alien's Day Out Vegan Bake Shop, a mail order vegan bakery run by Mipa Lee, whose blog is here. Lee also occasionally sells her baked goods at the Harunohee Cafe in Seoul. By finding the shop a few days before we left for Korea, I was able to put in an order well in advance of our trip and have vegan chocolate snickerdoodles and vegan chocolate chip cookies delivered to our hotel. How incredibly fun is that?
And let me tell you - these were absolutely delicious! Sweet and fudgey, with a slight crunch from the sugar crystals on the surface. It was like a brownie in cookie form. The chocolate chip cookies were equally yummy, but my family ate them all before I could photograph them! The cookies were also expertly packaged with bubble wrap, and arrived in perfect condition.
If you're visiting Seoul, be sure to put in your order in advance so that you can have vegan cookies delivered to your hotel!
H/T to Korea Bites for telling me about Alien's Day Out.
