Just a quick intro to one of my regular staples in Korea. Paris Baguette is a chain bakery that you can find virtually anywhere in the country – it’s said that they are three times as big as MacDonald’s.
Pictured here is a really cool pastry – not sure what it’s called, but it’s basically coffee-flavoured bread filled with mochi stuffed with sweet red beans. As good as it sounds.
If you’re a frequent visitor at Paris Baguette, make sure you get the free Happy Point card that allows you to earn points. It also works for many other chain cafes and stores. Roughly you can get 1 free pastry for every 10 you buy.
And if you’re wondering what the difference is between Paris Baguette and Paris Croissant – they’re owned by the same company, but Paris Croissant is nicer and more expensive.
Don’t miss the cute coffee cups!
