Bread for a Meal

Located in Sinsa-dong, Sigbugwan is a bakery owned by Dan Kim, the chef and owner of the famous French restaurant, “Toc Toc”. Wanting to make bread that went well with his cuisine, he took it upon himself to study and master the art of baking. According to him, he discovered the wonders of bread when he made some French toast for his staff using some leftover dough. Sigbugwan became not only a place to sell bread but a place to continually experiment with the art of baking. The “natural”, “plain”, and “rich” bread have come to represent the bakery of Sigbugwan.

Chef Kim states that the best way to eat bread differs by the bread type. “‘Plain’ bread is best eaten as a sandwich. ‘Natural’ bread should be eaten by itself or toasted so one can savor its delicate flavor. ‘Rich’ bread should be eaten together with something as thick and creamy as foie gras to bring out its best flavor." Only found and sold in Sigbugwan, “La Chambre aux Confitures” is a series of 6 jams carefully selected by Chef Kim to go with his bread. He recommends eating the “Rich” bread with the salted butter caramel jam spread, topped with slices of figs and bananas.

Kyoto Marble

Lately, there have been many new bakeries gaining popularity for their delectable sliced bread, but Kyoto Marble has already made its mark as the place for sliced bread since 2015. Nestled in the cozy neighborhood of Ichon, this bakery has been producing its famed Danish bread by repeatedly kneading, folding, and cutting the dough over 100 times every single day. Due to their perseverance, their 64-layer Danish bread has a very distinct marbling and a very moist, dense texture, making this bread a little heavier than the ones found elsewhere.

Visitors can choose from a wide range of flavors such as plain, maple, cheese, green tea, nutella, cinnamon, black sesame, etc. Their bread also goes well served as a base for Egg Benedict with bacon. Starting this March, visitors can enjoy Kyoto Marble’s Danish bread in a whole, new way. Their newest menu, “Fuwa Fuwa Toast”, is a Danish bread that has the texture of pudding! It's highly recommended to eat this bread with slices of bananas and berries!
