This week, I am featuring the delightful cheese bun from the little bread shop in Songdo, Incheon, South Korea. Priced around 500 won, or about less than 50 cents each, they serve as a tasty and satisfying breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The bread is soft, almost softer than the Chinese bakery buns from Hong Kong or San Francisco. There seem to be two types of cheese, cubes of creamy, salty and tangy (but fresh) on the inside and one chewy and melted on top. Each bun is sprinkled with something green, maybe crumbled parsley?
