Toast! I eat it for breakfast back at home, but in Korea fancy ♥ GIANT SLICES OF BREAD COVERED IN DELICIOUSNESS ♥ has become a very popular dessert or snack to order at one of the dozens upon dozens of cafes here in Seoul! Hurray!
Almost every cafe in Korea seems to be serving a kind of fancy toast bread treat atm, it has quickly become a staple in the cafe menu these days in Seoul. Some are savory dishes with garlic or cheese, but many are also sweet with chocolate, strawberry, or cream! The toast is incredibly thick like Texas-style toast, and usually made from a nice soft white bread. Prices vary depending on where you are eating, but since its typically a cafe treat the price is a bit higher… around 7,000-9,000won per slice. These are great to share since they usually come sliced up and are big, but I can easily finish one by myself because I have a 2nd stomach for bread *_*
Honey butter bread and a hot chocolate from Gurunaru
One thing to note is they just refer to the dishes in Konglish as “bread / 브레드” in most menus. It is crispy and toasted though! Sometimes when I order I totally forget and say it as “toast” and they look at me like I am insane. Ok, Ok Korea~ one Choco BREAD please.

Who makes the best ultra bread snack? Well I have yet to order a bad bread here, so I think you are safe no matter where you happen to stop and have these! They are a bit overpriced for what they are, but its because they are in coffee shops which are overpriced here to begin with! I have had gross cardboard waffle and muffins at many places here, so now I stick to a bread treat if I must snack at a cafe since I know it will be yummy! If I am going to shove beautiful carbs in my face they must be delicious.
