Honey bread

One of my resolutions for this year is to try more food/products.

While I was in Seoul earlier this month, I discovered that honey bread has become
as popular as waffles at coffee shops all around Korea.

At first, I thought it was something similar to a coffee cake or pound cake.
But I was told that it had a completely different texture and taste.

I had to try it for myself! I dragged my cousin to Zoo Coffee on New Year’s day and we ordered two cappuccinos and an “original” honey bread. (The other options were garlic honey bread, berry honey bread, and ice cream honey bread.) The staff told us that the honey bread would take 10 mins to be ready.

We sat and looked around. It really felt like we were at a zoo.

The cappuccino was tasty!

Ta-da~ The original honey bread

It was basically a thick piece of fluffy white toast with a very  crispy crust
dusted with sugar and soaked in butter.

And it tasted just like that.

We barely finished it because the bread + sugar + butter combo
was too heavy and filling.
Next time you hear Koreans tell you that most Koreans
don’t like sweet and buttery stuff, remind them of honey bread.

 The best part: the crunchy wall!

  1. I’ve had something similar to the honey bread here but it has ice cream drizzled with honey on top of the large block of fluffy white bread. Only needed to try it once to decide that it was way too sweet for my tastes but I can definitely see the appeal to it. Lovely looking cappuccino as well.
