It was weeks in preparation, days of cooking and hours in execution, but we did it!
Seoul’s 4th Veganfest was a great success. We enjoyed a stunningly beautiful day out at Seoul Innovation Park among the hundreds of out peers in the Vegan community and thousands of guests to this event. We sold a coming attraction to our menu, the hearty “Chilibomb” topped with cheese sauce and cashew sour cream, and our flagship “Burrito Bowl”.
We met so many new faces and were greeted by several of our regular customers.
This was our first Veganfest, so of course we learned some lessons:
#1 Winner, Winner, Vegan Chicken Dinner
We were placed next to the Vegan Tandoori Chicken vendor. They had a lineup from open-close. Must investigate.
#2 Don’t count on the electricity
Sadly, counting on the our crockpots to keep things hot was a mistake. With intermittent electricity the we had to make adjustments in order to keep the chili hot’n’ready.
#3 Triple check your gear before leaving!
We double checked, but still arrived without key elements to our setup! Oh the humanity!
#4 Hire goons to lineup in front of your booth
There’s a noticeable uptick in sale whenever there’s a group of people out front of your booth. If only we could pay our friends in lentils ^^
It was a good look to get our own tees printed for Veganfest. Most vendors were kitted up and it really made us feel like part of the team!
#6 This scene is only getting bigger
The turnout to this Veganfest was their biggest yet, it was great fun and we enjoyed so much delicious food.
Can’t wait to do it again!
It was on my birthday a year ago, International Vegetarian Day, October 1st 2016 that Kevin and I went to our first Veganfest in Korea. It was a delightful afternoon, with beautiful weather and so much great food to try! Our favourite vendors were there […]
Tomorrow, October 1 is INTERNATIONAL VEGETARIAN DAY
One of my favorite blogs Live Kindly has reminded us to hug a vegetarian tomorrow ^^
My personal top 5 reasons to hug a Vegetarian Sunday are:
1) Animals are our friends, not our food.
2) Inspiring people to continue innovating, creating delicious food that don’t rely on the pain and suffering of animals.
3) Keeping people sexy! The easiest way to maintain a healthy figure is to be conscious of what you consume.
4) Protecting our planet. Raising animals for consumption is a key contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions. Going green helps us all!
5) Because I’m a vegetarian! And I can use a hug. Holler if ya hear me ^^
SpoonMe will be selling a selection of our food with Nodaji Media for their event @ Sonnendeck in Itaewon!
Our good friends will have a variety of great artists, DJs, food and culture for you to browse and enjoy on a fine Sunday afternoon.

Remembering my years past teaching in public schools. Ah, those were some adventurous times! Too often I settled for a meal like this for lunch, which may be appealing to some, but to think… if I could have just ordered SpoonMe! Today we being our […]
