They are with us as a snack that will soothe a hungry stomach for someone else and a hearty meal that will satisfy their hunger. From amberjack, which makes use of the chewy texture of squid ink, to butterfly pie with a subtle sweetness of condensed milk, and healthy bread with a healthy flavor made from naturally fermented varieties! Here are 5 of the best local bakeries made by famous masters who will continue to be sweet for 100 years.

'Lee Heung-yong Confectionery Munhyeon Main Store' is run by CEO Lee Heung-yong, who was selected as the first confectionery and bakery master in Busan. Warm bread is baked every day by carefully selecting everything from a pinch of salt to a handful of flour. The signature menu is âblack rubber shoes,â which are filled with red bean paste and milk butter directly between ciabatta bread made with a black color using squid ink.
Red bean paste, which has just the right amount of sweetness without being burdensome, blends pleasantly with butter that melts in a pleasant way. âMentaiko baguette,â which is a patented bread that stands out for its crunchy texture and salty flavor, is also a popular menu item. The special sauce, made by adding olive oil, garlic, and basil to the colorless, low-salt, and non-fishy mentaiko, perfectly captures the fishy flavor and makes the most of its unique umami.
â²Location: 2-1, Suyeong-ro 39beon-gil, Nam-gu, Busan
â²Opening hours: 08:30 â 22:00 every day
â²Price: Black rubber shoes 3,800 won, mentaiko baguette 3,500 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin Bodumpanhama): I bought only one at the beginning, but I regretted it, so I bought several black rubber shoes on my second visit. If you eat the wrong amberjack, I really feel it, but I really like the ratio of adzuki beans to butter. The butter also has a really rich milk flavor, and if you eat it with Americano, one is crisp. hehe

âBriamont Bakeryâ is a place where CEO Shin Heung-joong, who has walked only one path of confectionery and bakery for over half a century, makes bread. Recently, the lifestyle cooperative bakery âNeighborhood Panneh Campanhoâ was renovated and opened as âBriamont,â so you can enjoy bread and drinks inside the store. The signature menu is âcondensed milk pie,â which has condensed milk on top of a pie with a subtle buttery flavor that stimulates the taste buds.
The sweetness of condensed milk seeps into the pie, which is crunchy along the texture, further enhancing the flavor. I also like the âButterzel,â which is a long Laugen pretzel split in half, coated with condensed milk, and filled with thick sliced gourmet butter. The combination of salty pretzels and sweet fillings makes for an addictive sweet and salty flavor.
â²Location: 15, Galhyeon-ro, Eunpyeong-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 07:00 â 22:00 every day
â²Price: Condensed milk pie 2,800 won, butter chel 4,300 won
â²Testimonial (7 tablets): It's a place I've been going to since ancient times, but the owner is kind, so if you want to eat bread, it's a place that naturally makes me think more. There are many types of bread, so if you buy one or two of the things you want to eat, it's a bag… I definitely recommend trying these three: a sweet condensed milk pie, a filling cream puff, and a salt-sprinkled pretzel with delicious butter in between.

The combination of the chewy texture unique to Injeolmi and the subtle sweetness of castella powder is attractive. If you eat it with cold white milk, you can enjoy it even more. Please note that Castella Injeolmi can also be delivered by courier.

â²Review (Shikigami HaribotheLove): I bought Castella Injeolmi because I had to try it when I went on a trip to Yeongju. I think it was even more delicious because it was generously sprinkled with castella powder. It's not irritating, so it's a mouth-watering taste! It was nice to have a space on the second floor where you can eat bread picked on the first floor. hehe

It's a cream made with cream cheese, but it doesn't feel at all and goes very well with light bread. The red bean paste bread, which is full of red bean paste, is also delicious, and the texture of the red bean grains alive one by one is just my style.
