Must Try Snack (5): Breads
I have a love affair with breads. I can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner – perhaps even for tea time. I’ll never get tired of it.
That’s why I decided to end my must try snacks in Seoul with a BREAD post!
1. Paris Baguette
Yes, everyone might know the good ol’ Paris Baguette. There’s so many outlets and now they’ve a few branches in Singapore as well.
2. Paris Croissant Café
I prefer Paris Croissant to Paris Baguette honestly. They serve better quality and most interesting flavours. As the store name suggest, they’re known for their croissants. Sweet potato Danish (left) and signature croissant (right).
Do try their other flavours, such as Caramel monkey bread (left) Bacon sucre with choco dipping sauce (right).
2. TOUS Les JOURS
This bakery does not only serves breads but also a variety of healthy salads. Of course, I had to get my hands on the breads! I tried 2 interesting flavours – Bacon cheese skirt senbei (left) and apple pie (right)
3. Isaac Toast.
I honestly LOVE Isaac toast and cannot get enough of it. It’s the way the bread feels crispy and fluffy at the same time. Additionally, they’re stuffed with egg, meats and cabbage. It’s extremely comforting if you’re cold and walking around in winter.
4. Thick Toast With Whipped Cream
Many of the cafes serve thick toast with whipped cream.
One of the places that I love and is extremely popular among young korean girls is the Coffee Boy (커피 소년). It is located at Hongdae, in between Edae University and Hongik University. Many of the girls go there just to see their eye candy 0 cute waiters. I went there purely for their thick toast with whipped cream and honey… IT WAS GOOD!
If you don’t fancy whipped cream, perhaps go for something for savoury, such as garlic and cheese. It’s just as yummy :D
Of course, if you miss Singapore food, you can head down to Rotiboy, located at Itaewon, for delicious coffee bun. Ah, the good ol’ days where people used to queue by for this bread.
Not to worry if you cannot find these places, although I seriously doubt you won’t be able to because the top 3 bakeries are found everywhere in Seoul.
I hope you enjoy the bread culture, just as much as I do!
