Boasting a 35-year history, “New York Confectionery” is the oldest bakery in Sokcho. CEO Lee Kyu-chang, who worked as a bakery at Seorak Park Hotel, founded the current store in 1984. It is a place that has maintained low prices over a long period of time and is loved by local residents. They are constantly working to develop new menus by showcasing bread made from Gangwon-do specialties such as squid and potatoes.

When you walk into the store, the breads that fill the shelves catch your eye. This place has a diverse menu, starting with over 50 types of bread, as well as sweets such as sandwiches, cakes, and macaroons. The signature menu is “Squid Rice Bread,” which won a silver medal at the National Confectionery and Bakery Competition. The dough made by adding half of the flour and rice flour is filled with plenty of soy sauce mixed with squid, shiragi, onions, and cheese, and baked. The mildly spicy beef blends harmoniously with the lightness of shiraegi and the aroma of cheese. Squid cut into large pieces adds rich umami and chewy texture, making it even more fun to chew.

'Wheat Field Bakery' was first opened in 1982 by Lee Jeong-bu and Park Young-ja. It captivates the tastes of men and women of all ages by presenting a variety of breads, from classic-style breads such as red bean paste bread, mammoth bread, and donuts to bread tailored to the latest trends such as Pandor, Injeolmi bread, and amber. Currently, Lee Jun-wook, the son of the first boss and his wife, is working with me at the store and preparing to follow suit.

All breads made in wheat field bakeries are characterized by using only natural fermented varieties without preservatives or chemical preservatives. The signature menu, “melon bread,” is a bread covered with soboro crumble and filled with green melon cream. The sweetness and aroma of melon cream that covers the tongue as soon as you take a bite is appealing. “Beauty bread,” which consists of brioche dough filled with cream puffs and fresh cream and sprinkled castella powder all over the bread, is also a popular menu. The point is that the butter content was increased to make use of its soft, melt-like texture. There is a cafe space on the 2nd floor of the store, so you can enjoy bread purchased on the 1st floor with drinks or coffee.

â–²Review (Shikigin Cider Tok Tok): I usually really like cream bread, but I really recommend these 3 things: melon bread, devil bun, and beauty bread! The cream is really rich, so if you drink it with American yellow, it really goes great with it! These menus are also sold as set menus, but if you buy them as a set, you can get them at a slightly discounted price!

The “Antitussive Medicine Division” has maintained its position since 1983. The three brothers, who were taught by their father, continue their fame by running a bakery in the Jinhae area. Among them, the oldest son, Seong-cheon, has been running the main branch of Jinhae since 2002. It is a representative bakery in Jinhae, with 1,000 to 1,500 domestic and international tourists visiting each day during the Gunhang Festival.

The Antitussive Medicine Department offers a variety of menus such as bread, cakes, and tarts using cherry blossoms representing the region. The signature menu, “cherry blossom bread,” is made by putting the essence extracted from cherry blossoms into cherry-shaped bread. Cherry blossom bread was developed and patented due to its unique flavor that can only be enjoyed in Jinhae. The cute flower shape and pink sediment visuals are very popular on social media. In cherry blossom bread, the flavor of cherry blossoms spreads softly on the first bite, and the walnuts contained in the bread add a savory flavor and the fun of chewing on your own. Cherry blossom bread is sold in units of 10 and can be enjoyed anywhere in the country using a delivery service.

You can find a variety of menus that combine cherry blossoms and bread, including “cherry bread,” which was developed in collaboration with antitussive medicine. The signature menu is the “cherry blossom cream cheese tart,” which is baked by putting cream cheese and cream puff on a cherry blossom shaped tart paper. The combination of the soft cream that fills the mouth with sweetness and the savory tart paper is exquisite. “Honey madeleine made from cherry blossom honey,” which is made by adding cherry blossom honey to a flour dough made with high-grade butter and eggs, is also a popular menu. Natural cherry honey collected in April, which is the cherry blossom season of the year, is added, and you can feel the sweetness without being burdensome. You can enjoy melt-in-your-mouth madeleine with white milk to make it even more delicious.

There are various menus that include cherry blossoms, but I personally love the cherry bread and tarts! Even regular breads that don't contain cherry blossoms are of good quality, so I always go here when I buy bread!
