A must-have buttery crunchy experience@Paul & Paulina 폴앤폴리나, Seoul

image

I always try to never miss the chance of dropping by at Paul & Paulina Bakery,폴앤폴리나 I am in Seoul. My first experience of it was at Hongik, at the top slope up the hill from the women’s university. The pungent whiff of buttery aroma reached me nose even from below. I could not erase the euphoric moment of landing my first bite upon the crunchy buttery, fluffy layers of the croissants.

I loved the fact how the staff gave immense amount of free samples to the queuing patrons outside and that method really worked as everyone was super gluttony and greedy by the time their turn came and they would buy just about everything that was sampled to them.

I was so thrilled to know they opened the second branch just nearby Namusairo. Wow, killed 3 birds with one mouth! Teeheehee.

I’ve tried many, many, many croissants, even the ones in the famed Paris. Surprisingly, the best croissant for me is the one that comes from Seoul, Paul & Paulina. Crossing even above Tiong Bahru Bakery, in Singapore.

I sat just at road side on those brick layered plants and happily devoured every buttery bit of this out-of-the-world croissant!

Of course, not forgetting the chocolate croissants. Photos really can’t filly justify how awesome these pastries were. Can you see each nicely baked layers of the fluffy, yet crunchy buttery deliciousness?

The chocolates they used were good quality bitter sweet chocolates, evelating its quality to a whole new level. Once your teeth sinks in, those warm melted chocolate just burst inside your mouth. I’ve became a die hard fan of P&P every since my love at first bite in Hongik.

After a fulfilling croissant eating escapade, we walked around the touristy filled palace surroundings and they were all brightly lited with these purple pink blossoming beauties!

Paul & Paulina 폴앤폴리나 , I’ll see you soon at winter! Sends exciting thrilling shivers down my spine just imagining myself eating the perfectly baked warm buttery croissants below zero degrees temperature. 🙂

Final day brunch@ 나무사이로, Namusairo & Bread B, Seoul

With the short few hours left before departing to the airport, we hopped on the MRT and headed to have a quick brunch at 나무사이로, Namusairo. The previous time I was here was spring time and it was rather cold, so I sat outside with Mr Rush. As it is summer now, indoors it is!

I really adored the authentic, old skool, wooden house feel, making drinking the cuppa ambience really awesome.

A cold and cold cuppa to have a yin and yang feel. Ethiopian beans hand dripped. Yums! I preferred the iced coffee, full of fragrance and body. Perhaps the hot weather too played a role towards my liking for the iced cuppa.

This was my write up when I was here at spring two years back. http://foodventura.com/2014/10/amazing-coffee-findnamusairo-%EB%82%98%EB%AC%B4%EC%82%AC%EC%9D%B4%EB%A1%9C-seoul/

We passed by Bread B Bakery, which is located just opposite Namusairo, and bought a few breads to brunch on with our cuppas.

This sandwich, as described on the board as juicy fresh club sandwich, was literally described as those written words. They were one of the most juiciest sandwiches I had ever eaten. Not to mention how fresh the vegs were.  Wanna scream Ooooh lala!

image

Bread B is known for its premium sliced cakes, and we bought a slice and put it to the test. The raspberry ganache chocolate cake was….absolutely divine. Cost us RM20 over this slice. Perfect to eat with the hot cuppa Ethiopian bean hand dripped coffee.

It was just plain awesome having amazing coffee at Namusairo with great bakes from Bread B. Can’t wait to come back here soon!
