Issac Toast is a world-famous toast chain that has over 700 outlets in Korea, and has expanded internationally to Malaysia, Taiwan and yes, SINGAPORE! It’s literally the perfect breakfast toast, with a variety of flavours and toppings, and buttery toasted bread. I ate it almost everyday while I was in Korea. It’s also CHEAPER in Korea than Singapore; for example the Ham Special, one of my favourite combo, which has ham, melted cheese, pickles, cabbage and special sauce, is KRW2,900 (SGD$3.41), but sells for $4.90 in Singapore at the Plaza Sing outlet. The Bulgogi MVP, which is a whopping $6.50 in SG, is only KRW3,400 (SGD$4) in Korea! Definitely a must-try if you’re in Korea, and it makes a cheap, filling, tasty and convenient breakfast.

Isaac Toast Korea has a HUGE menu, with multiple flavours ranging from Bulgogi MVP, Bulgabi MVP, Shrimp MVP and Bacon & Potato Pizza! 🍕🥪 It’s truly sandwich galore, with flavours that you don’t get in Singapore and prices that are way cheaper and more affordable! For example, we tried the Bulgogi MVP, which is a whopping $6.50 in SG but only KRW3,400 (SGD$4) in Korea! Definitely a must try if you’re in Korea!

The wonderful obasan/auntie at the Isaac Toast outlet is so friendly and smiley and makes the most delicious toast. Pictured here is her buttering the grill and grilling hams for our sandwiches (Ham & Cheese, KRW2,900, Bacon & Cheese Muffin KRW3,100, Steak Ham VIP, KRW3,200). Isaac Toast is a really convenient breakfast to grab and go, with more than 700 outlets across Korea. But note that different outlets may have different menus; for example, the Myeongdong Outlet is a take-out only kiosk with a limited menu and fewer flavour offerings.

Is it “bingsoo” or “bingsu”? I always get confused 😛

I tried the Matcha Bingsu (Regular $11.90, Large $14.90) at Nunsaram Korean Dessert Cafe. I ordered the Regular, but was a little disappointed because it was much smaller than what I had seen on the pictures of other Burpple reviews (I suppose other Burpplers are not as stingy as me and ordered the Large, lol😅). For $11.90, I think it’s a little not worth it, considering the size.

However, the shaved ice is pretty fine, and I liked that the matcha flavour was quite distinct (there was a second layer of matcha powder hidden beneath, so it’s not all plain ice). The Bingsu was topped with sweet red bean paste, two small chunks of rice cake, and a matcha ice cream (which tasted kind of like cheap green tea ice cream). Overall, it’s a decent bingsu, just not the best.

The namesake of Gohyang Kalguksu, the Kalguksu knife-cut noodles are handmade by the stall-owner Ms Cho Yonsoon.

You can watch Ms Cho in action as she brandishes a knife and slices away at a ball of hand-knead dough, dunks the noodles into a steaming vat of hot water, scoops it out into a gleaming metal bowl with a ladle of piping hot soup and presents it in front of you. Nothing like a hot bowl of soup to warm you up on a winter’s day!

The dumplings come in 2 flavours at Gohyang Kalguksu (the famous stall featured on Netflix’s Street Food documentary!).

I ordered the Dumpling Soup (KRW5,000, or SGD$5.80), which came with 2 kimchi dumplings and 4 meat dumplings (pictured here). The meat dumpling is GENEROUSLY filled with meat filling and incredibly flavourful and delicious! Between the two flavours, I personally prefer the meat over the kimchi dumpling, which has a rather mild, subdued flavour.

Ms Cho Yonsoon, owner of Gohyang Kalmykia, is famous for 2 items on her menu—kalguksu (knife-cut noodles) and mandu (dumplings, either soup or steamed). The best part? It’s delicious and AFFORDABLE, with everything priced at KRW5,000, or SGD$5.80! 😋🥟🍲👍🏼 Best meal I had in South Korea! (Check out my review on YouTube now—https://youtu.be/aIM9nqCfWmE)

Gohyang Kalguksu was featured on Netflix’s Street Food episode on Korea, so I made my way down to the bustling Gwangjang Market to try it for myself.

I ordered the Dumpling Soup (KRW5,000, or SGD$5.80), which came with 6 dumplings (2 kimchi and 4 meat), each generously filled and BURSTING with delicious flavour. The dumpling (mandu) is wrapped in a semi-translucent skin that is slightly thick but has a silky mouthfeel. It was so good that my mum, brother and I ordered 3 bowls and finished everything, down to every last drop of the piping hot broth. 😋🥟🍲👍🏼 Best meal I had in South Korea!

Majang Meat Market is a local, undiscovered gem in Seoul, South Korea where you can buy fresh Korean beef from butchers and go to a restaurant to directly grill it! After purchasing our Hanwoo beef, we were shown to a restaurant where we could barbecue the meat for KRW 5,000 (about SGD$5.82) per person. We were given some side dishes, or banchan as they call it in Korea, like lettuce leaves, perilla leaves, kimchi, bean sprouts etc. The Koreans eat it by wrapping it altogether with the barbecued meat! 😋 (Check out my food review on YouTube now! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLUdro073NA)

Missing the free flow kimchi in Korea. 😢In Korea, you can get free flow kimchi at almost every restaurant, unlike in SG where you are usually given only a small plate as a side dish.
