Paris Baguette and I are not friends. In Australia I’m quite health conscious about bread and prefer grainy bread or wholemeal bread. It’s so different in Korea where bread is usually a sweet dessert thing. I love sweet foods; I just prefer them to be cakes, cookies or chocolate. I want my bread to be savoury.
Other times I’ve been in Korea and have gone into Paris Baguette and in amongst all the sickly sweet stuff I’ve seen garlic bread. That must be savoury right? Wrong. It’s sweet too. Such a disappointment.
Paris Baguette is everywhere though. Even the small town next to Mr Gwon’s hometown has one and there are definitely ones in Jinju. We walked past one a few times in Jinju yesterday and my memories of the garlic bread came back.
