One of the few stores in HCMC that you can sometimes find things like soy yogurt, ready made hummus, and other vegan items such as nuts, seeds, lentils, spices, tahini, Bragg liquid aminos, maple syrup, molasses, dates, and imported avocados. There is a cold room with a selection of fresh vegetable. Previously at S54-1 Pham Van Nghi - Bac Khu, Pho Sky Garden, District 7. Open daily. more-less

Not Veg At All, But a Good Resource

Posted on 01 / 29 / 2015

Although this store doesn't even attempt to target vegetarians (much less vegans) by any stretch of the imagination (a full butcher counter, all dairy products, eggs), they do happen to carry enough items that would make it a valuable resource to most veg people living on the area or visiting for any significant duration.

The second floor features a walk-in refrigerator which contains many beautiful and delicious fruits and vegetables, hummus, and all of the dairy products, and also functions as a nice reprieve from the heat. ;)

There are some typical "western" snacks, breakfast cereals, and comfort foods (like cake mix and pasta) that could be really nice for foreigners loving in HCM. For those vacationing, it's worth a look of you are in the area, but the items for sale are mostly intended to be prepared at home in your kitchen. Apart from the nuts (which are widely available elsewhere in Vietnam), the only real on-the-go snack foods are total junk and probably not worth the trip, unless you are really craving that sort of thing.

Worth a look, but not veg by any standard, although could be a nice spot for long-term residents.

Pros: Some unique imports, Hummus, Fresh Produce
Cons: Mostly bulk or pantry-size items

Limited but potentially useful

As others have stated, this isn't the vegetarian haven one might hope for... but it does have certain products that you can't find anywhere else. If you really want an Amy's burrito or shepherd's pie, for example, or certain Eden products, they may have exactly what you want (and the extra price is understandable as it's all imported). Still, it's a bit of a wasted opportunity and the shelves seem to be half-full of normal products you can find in other shops.

Pros: Some unique products
Cons: Expensive, Small, Limited selection

This isn't the place to buy vegies in!

I agree that the pair of shops on Nam Nghi are better for prepared Western foods like tahini, muesli etc, although this stuff is available at Veggy's. BTW, so is meat, so the name is a bit of a misnomer.

I went to the Veggy's in District 1. Not worth the hype they give themselves when there are alternatives available.

Pros: Convenient at times
Cons: Price , Alternatives available

RIP OFF

Posted on 12 / 19 / 2011

Over priced rip off merchants. They sell vegetables that are old and try to charge you full price. Everything here is 3 times the price of other places in the City.

Go to Ham Nghi street just up from Ngoc Lan bakery there are two shops next to each other which have the same stuff at a fraction of the price.

or try Organikvn.com the deliver organic vegies from Dalat Mon to Sat. Much cheaper than Veggys.

Pros: There are none
Cons: Rip off, Rip off, Sullen staff
