On the bus home from work I have to pass two of my favorite places in the whole world...Wheatsville and Dhaba Joy.  So today I figured what the fuck I'll just make the day a bit longer and stop at Dhaba Joy.  I had the intention of picking up some unchicken sandwiches and cupcakes and jetting, but then I saw the angelic glittering of berry swirl cheesecake.  They said it was the first time they've had it as I salivated at the case.  Seriously do yourself a favor and get there before they run out.  Without a doubt it is one of the best vegan treats I've ever had.  Don't walk, run, or drive, speed to Dhaba Joy to get yourself a slice.

>Sounds great!

Update: Just had a slice of the berry swirl cheesecake and it was heavenly.  Probably the best thing I've had there, with the possible exception of the cinnamon rolls, which by the way they are no longer offering since the guy who made them isn't there anymore.  We gotta demand that the swirl cake become a regular item!

Even in pre-gan days I never really dug cheesecake that much but stopped by tonight to try BUT they were out of it but had a "choclate coconut cheesecake" that I got instead and it was ...good, but by no means rave-able? I mean taken my disposition towards cheesecake in the first place, but idk I think I woulda been happier not spending 3 dollars on a lil piece of cake and instead going home and making a milkshake out of the pint of chocolate nadamoo in my freezer, but thats just me.

In other news, neither of the guys behind the counter knew what casein was, which is a little disturbing. Espeically since they are now serving vegan grilled cheese sandwhichs and one of them said he used rice slices at home, which is fine an he can do what he wants but I still think he should be well versed in veganism and things to avoid if he is working at a vegan cafe/bakery.

Hey! I'm the baker and assistant manager of Dhaba Joy- just wanted to let you know that everything we serve, minus the milk option in drinks, is always 100% vegan. I personally check all of the ingredients before putting anything away!

Vegan baristas are hard to find; though we try to train our employees as much as we can, there's no way to fill them in on things its taken me years to understand. Bear with us/them!

xo,
kathryn

I have to say that one of the things I miss the most from Austin is Dhaba Joy! I have always had a sweet tooth so I am probably a little biased, but you guys are sooooo lucky to have a vegan bakery right in your city! If we could get My Thai Cafe (asian food in Boston) and Dhaba Joy into the same city I think it would become the vegan capital ;-)

Kathryn that was really nice of you to post on here and of course it is probably unreasonable of us to assume that everyone who works there is vegan (in an ideal world maybe!).
