Isaac Toast is one of the most popular breakfast options in Korea, and I couldn’t wait to try it when we visited Seoul. It was like the stars aligned because as fate would have it, there was a location on the first floor of the high rise AirBnB we were staying at.
This was our first official meal in Korea, and I completely understand why it’s so popular. This isn’t your normal toasty and let me explain why.
The bread is the shining star of the show. Toasted to golden brown perfection on a flat top grill it’s slightly crisp on the outside yet soft on the inside. It’s sweet but not overpowering. The bread to filling ratio is perfect, not too thick and not too thin. You know when you order a sandwich, and 75 percent of its just bread, not the case with Isaac Toast. It’s a tasty foundation for the perfect sandwich.
Each sandwich includes a thin layer of sweet, savory and buttery dressing. Words can’t even describe it. It’s like a bottle of Kewpie mayonnaise mated with a jar of savory honey and gave birth to the perfect condiment. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
This was a surprise addition to the sandwich and worked oh so perfectly. The shredded cabbage added a crunch to the soft sandwich that I loved. With every bite, it delivers another level of texture, first soft bread, crunchy cabbage and then the delicious filling whether it be salty ham or a patty of bulgogi.
The Best Sandwich Options
I want to let you know that I’m not a big sandwich eater but for Isaac, I will eat them and many of them. Our first order included a Bacon Best, MVP Hot Ttoukgalbi, and Bulgogi. My favorite was the Bacon Best. No need to go into details, there’s BACON inside. Enough said.
