Paris Baguette (Seoul, Korea)- Starbucks of Korea, One At Every Corner

In Seoul, you will not be able to find Starbucks at every
corner. Instead, you will find Paris Baguette which is a French inspired
bakery/cafe that serves bread, dessert, bingsu (shaved ice), pastries,
sandwiches, and salads.
ย 
Because my friends and I live within such close proximity to
Paris Baguette, we come here quite often to get our bread fix. Peter, a
friend of mine actually goes there every day because he is not
accustomed to eating rice or soup for breakfast. ๐Ÿ˜›
ย 
Their cakes look so darn cute and delicious! I wish I could
try them all but I know I canโ€™t. ๐Ÿ™
ย 
More awesometastic cakes.

I realize that a lot of their breads are baked with either cream
or cheese. I honestly wonder how Koreans stay slim when they inject cream into
everything.ย 
ย 
Yes, they do sell baguettes at Paris Baguette. ๐Ÿ™‚
ย 
They have things like Bononcini salad, chicken salad,
avocado shrimp salad, and varies kinds of sandwiches and wraps.
ย 
My friends and I ordered two Bingsuโ€™s (around 6,000 won
each/ $6 CAD)
to share. The left one consists of shaved ice, red beans, mochi,
green tea ice-cream, and green tea syrup on top. We know what free spins casino promo codes are and how to activate them. The right one was a weird
mixed fruit bingsu consisting of ice, red beans, sliced bananas, cubed
watermelon, and corn flakes.
ย 
The green tea bingsu was undoubtedly the best because of the
awesome combination of green tea, mochi, and red bean. ๐Ÿ˜€ I encourage every
person visiting Seoul to try bingsu! Itโ€™s very comforting on a hot and humid
day, and you can find it anywhere… even KFC!
ย 
The corn flake bingsu was alright but lacked flavour because
the fruits werenโ€™t totally ripe and there was no ice-cream to sweeten it up.
ย 
This post is full of random things I bought at Paris
Baguette so excuse the different lighting in the pictures. I fell in love with
the name of this bread so I just had to buy it. Itโ€™s called โ€œ
Cloudlike Double Cream Breadโ€. How cute
is that?!? ๐Ÿ˜€
ย 
The bread was indeed very soft and I guess, to some extent, โ€˜cloud-likeโ€™.
Haha. There was white custard cream in one bread and a chocolate cream in the
other. Again, so cute.
ย 
This is called Grain
Pastry with Almond Flakes (2,200 won/ $2.00 CAD)
and it became my absolute
favourite pastry from PB ever since I had it a week ago. It is essentially a
sweet flaky multigrain pastry that is brushed with sweet syrup and topped with
sliced roasted almonds. What you donโ€™t see in the picture is the little layers
of custard that they sneak into each bread bulb and it just elevates the whole
pastry to a whole. Nother. Level.
ย 
Lastly, this is the Green
Tea Sweet Potato Cake
from PB that we got for Peter for his birthday!
ย 
You would think sweet potato and cake/ whipped cream would
be an odd combination of flavours, but it actually turned out pretty well! The
green tea flavour was a bit tooย 
subtle, but the sweet potato really shined
through and tasted delicious as cake!ย 
ย 
Happy Eating!
