Breakfast for me is usually bread and coffee. Nothing beats hot pan de sal which I think goes well with just about any spread: cream cheese, jam, peanut butter, and liver spread. Have you tried condensed milk on pan de sal? Yummy! I also like pan de sal with instant pansit canton. Whenever we wake up late and there are no pan de sal left in the neighborhood bakery, I make do with monay.
I did not find any pan de sal in Seoul. Instead, Angela and I had pulbbang–homemade bread that comes in different shapes, sizes, and filling. We like the small, round ones sold in a stall in Insadong, the place in Seoul to come for gifts or souvenirs. We also like the flat, bigger ones sold by the ajusshi across the Princeton Review Center in Anguk. And we just had to try the fish-shaped ones with red bean filling.
