When it comes to ramen Bowl of Ramen , Korea has gone so far as to create a stir-fried fiery chicken flavor. The same goes for the traditional Japanese fried pork cutlet dish, tonkatsu, being pushed further into the Korean fusion stew, tonkatsu kimchi hot pot! In a place like Korea where even preparing kimchi with shine muscat takes place, this kind of “food localization,” if you will, can be seen across many spectrums, including baked and confectionary goods belonging to that of K-Bread Sliced Bread Even specialty items, such as coffee bean bread and sweet potato bread, are popular in their respective homes of Gangneung (Gangwon-do Province) and Haenam (Jeollanam-do Province). So then what kind of breads can you find in Seoul? Not only in Korea, but across the world, Seoul is, in fact, a bread and confectionary hub frequently offering up new creations! Let's take a look at what the city has to offer by way of all the special bakery concoctions sought out from people all over the world!

Not your typical donuts!

"Don't delay the donuts Donut of today until tomorrow!" Or something rather... Anyway, turns out after my coming to Korea, I'm eating “tomorrow's” donuts, too! I usually watch what I eat, but I just can't help myself when it comes to donuts. It's actually really similar to a snack back in Russia called pishkis, but it's shaped completely different. These donut twists I'm talking about resemble that of braided hair having rolled out the dough nice and long in two strips before intertwining them. But for the dough, rather than regular flower, it's made up of corn or rice flour that helps create a really savory taste. And they are the perfect match with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk! With donut twists having made its comeback, Papadonas is certainly at the front of the pack leading the trend! Apart from regular donut twists, Papadonas takes the traditional donut theme and reinterprets it using different kinds of filling, such as nutella and sweet potato. What's more, it's only 1,000 won for a donut! Grab some spare change off the counter and head on over to Haebangchon for a delicious treat! Person Running

#EggBread #OppaEggBread

Chen from Taiwan [Taiwan] Chen
Winter means the egg bread diet is back!
Egg bread cut in half on display with other pictures showing a panoramic view of the bakery and some egg bread next to a cup of tea.

Egg bread is amazing with tandanji salad, while providing your daily dose of protein! At least I think so! But in Korea, egg bread is the go-to snack when winter starts making it's way 'round. There are so many varied dishes in Korea using eggs, but among them, my favorite is egg bread Egg . In Taiwan, we have something similar, but Korean-style egg bread actually has the entire egg still intact, which offers a completely different world of flavor. In fact, neighborhoods with even just a single bakery or stand that makes a proper egg bread, are sure to bring crowds upon crowds of people, hence my envy of the Sookmyung Women's University area! Right nearby, a young, suave baker opened up shop under the name Oppa Egg Bread, and it's already the talk of the town! Traditional egg bread doesn't demand any unique ingredients or cooking techniques, but at Oppa Egg Bread, they add a little something special: cheese Cheese and mayonnaise. And with this ingredient upgrade, the taste is even heartier and more savory than before! Isn't it great that such a fantastic street snack can be enjoyed indoors?! Now your fingers don't need to freeze while you eat!

Cream cheese garlic bread varieties on display.

According to the Legend of Dangun, Koreans are the ancestors of ungnyeo, a bear who transformed into a human after eating garlic Garlic (and staying isolated in a cave for 100 days!). So perhaps that's why Koreans are so impassioned about their garlic Bear ! So much so, in fact, that they have gone a step beyond garlic bossam and garlic chicken, into the realm of garlic bread, Korean style! Cream cheese garlic bread, known widely as K-Bread in Malaysia Malay National Flag , is a round-shaped bread with a generous helping of cream cheese in the middle. Since the beginning of this year, Korean garlic bread recipes and reviews have been posted all over social media in Malaysia. As of late, a good number of bakeries around the Seoul have made valiant efforts in recreating the delicious bread, but there's only one original. And that original is found at a popular bakery called, Pangpamiyu in Gangwon-do Province. Thankfully, this very special brand of bakery has opened shop in Seoul making it much more convenient to stop by for a tasting! And don't forget to post a review on your social media page to let other bread fanatics out there know what they're missing out on!

Korean corn bread is as addictive is it gets! Winking Face
Bread varieties on display at bakery.

Korea may receive applause for its fight to maintain it's drug-free status, but that doesn't mean it's not free of highly-addictive... bread Surprised Look ! Among these breads is one of Daegu's very own traditions, corn bread! Otherwise known as "drug bread" in Seoul because of it's addictiveness. It's one of the reasons I like Seoul so much. When I first came to Seoul, Korea, I had trouble adjusting to the food, so I ended up looking around for different breads that I could eat. Just about when I had tried everything available, I happened upon the corn bread Corn at Samsong Bakery! And I swear to you. Maybe there are some people that never tried the infamous corn bread, but there is no one that has simply tried it only once! The outside of the bread is covered in a sweet corn powder, while the inside is filled with crunchy corn kernels Anticipating Look . After you finish the bread, it'll hit you just how addicting it is! Even more so than snack foods like tteokbokki! Every time my mom visits Korea, I always give her plenty to take back, but it's never enough. At least I can readily find the corn bread in Seoul now, so you’ll know that I’ll be going to Samsong Bakery and empty their shelves to take some back with me when I visit my family!
