Woohoo! Korean Toast! Now, let’s just say from the get go that when we hear about Korean Toast, we think of two different kinds of Toast. One is something that we experienced a lot as teachers in Korea. Ham-Cheese toast. It’s got a slice of ham, slice of cheese, fried egg, some cabbage, all between two pieces of toast. It’s all made on a flat, hot grill and slathered in butter. It’s greasy and delicious. So, whenever I think about Korean toast, I think about the delicious kind of toast, and then I think about this kind.

WHAT THE EFF IS THIS CONCOCTION? Calling it a slice of bread would be unfair, because it’s more like a quarter of a loaf. It’s made of the whitest of white bread. Gluey, stodgy, sticky white bread. Take a huge hunk of it. Cover it in stuff. BOOM! That toast.

It’s soooooo not our style. It feels like the kind of dessert your kid would make you if they’re six years old and want to impress mummy and daddy, and you eat it and smile just to make your kid not feel bad about themselves while really you’re like “WHAT THE EFF AM I EATING?!”

But, we’re thinking that maybe we just experienced a bad version of it. This is our second time trying toast like this, and both times it wasn’t quite good, but both times were from bigger franchises. Maybe if we went to the smaller coffee shops and got a sugar-overdose-loaf toast, then maybe it’ll be done differently? Patbingsu didn’t really do it for us at first, but once we had good patbingsu, we were totally converted. Can we eventually, one day, be converted into this kind of toast? I’m not sure. What if it was made with a cinnamon raisin bread, instead of just a white bread? Has anyone had a good toast like this before?

So, yeah! That’s it for the FAPFAP. We mostly show off foods that we really like for our segment, but every once in a while we want to show you something special that we find to be rather…interesting, and hopefully we can have you nasties convince us of the goodness of that type of dish.

Otherwise, we’ve got some footage that didn’t make it into the final cut, including bloopers, and more Kai Bai Boh-ing :D

 

Also, side note: we’re up for a Shorty Award for Best Webshow. Vote for us! If we win, that means we’ll be down in New York for the awards show, and we’d make an awesome video of it, and hopefully be able to hang out with some New York Nasties! And if we’re in New York, we’d definitely go over to Toronto as well, so we can meet you Toronto Nasties, too! It’s a win-win situation! So…give it a click! Let’s Nastify the Shorty Awards!

  1. Martina I love your sweater!! It is sooooooooooo cute XD

    Actaully on the outside of the resteraunt it had a plastic version of what Martina ordered. And it looked excatly like what Martina ordered, so on the inside of the resteraunt was false advertising. But the outside was not false advertising.

  3. I had a much better version of this toast in Korea! It was in a small coffee shop and I think they called it “Chocobread”? It was basically two thick slices of french toast (nowhere near as thick as the bread you guys had) sandwiched together with chocolate spread that tasted like nutella and covered in whipped cream and chocolate sauce. The bread was sweeter and lighter than usual bread but slightly crunchy on the outside. It was gorgeous, especially for breakfast!

    The odd obsession with adding sweetness to ANYTHING here is something I won’t get used to. I bought “harvest” crackers at the store one time which I really expected to be whole grain or some sort of wholesome cracker. Well when I opened them up and could SEE the crystals of sugar on top my heart sank a little. Still love Korea though and it’s just another of their quirks..only in Korea

  5. This kind of toast might be up my alley… n_n” When I was younger, my nanang (grandmother) would give me toast with butter and sugar for snacks… if she had cinnamon, she would put that on top as well.

  6. Lol. The bloopers… Little balls all over my plate…. O.o

  7. …….I like the Korean toasts. When I get back to America, I’m going to get some Texas Toast, toast it, and put some ice cream and whipped cream on top and watch my family and friends have “WTF” faces of the century.

  8. Random food question: What do you guys do/where do you go when you crave food that isn’t Korean (or Korean tasting)? Do you both do a lot of home cooking and if so what sort of meals are staples for you?

  9. Shinee ate something like that once, in a reality show “maknae rebelion” where they had to do a challenge and eat everything they were served, like even they condiments and side dishes, but it also looked like a big franchise, well more like a chain store/ brand thing with uniforms and everything, it was plain bread but big and toasted and they poured honey on it, like if it were pancake, but theirs looked better http://youtu.be/vHTJuUKJYO8

  10. That ham-cheese toast sounds delicious. ;-;

  11. it must be acquired taste x) I actually like the savoury/sweet combo so I don’t mind garlicky buttery bread with sugar haha… it’s like dipping your maccas fries in sundae

  12. They have a Japanese restaurant — En Okonomiyaki Dining — where they have: as usual, a quarter loaf of bread that has been cut out from the crust, cut into cubes, toasted, then put back into the square crust. It’s all bathed in honey, ice cream, and toppings. It’s delcious! Please don’t give up on honey breads!

  13. Why is there sugar or sweet stuff on like every single Korean-ized Western food? :/

  14. I’m from Germany and the 1st time I saw this bread on display I was like “Bread as a dessert?!” I was kind of perplexed, but I tried it (at the Hello Kitty café *wuhuuuu*) and it tasted good. In the beginning it was a bit strange, because it wasn’t like the bread I anticipated, but it was okay (but a bit dry). It was more of a struggle to finde “real” bread with grain (we didn’t found any). I think that’s one of the things I would start to miss terribly. =/ Have you ever found such bread in Korea?

  15. Stawski? You have Polish surname? :D

  16. my first time in Seoul I went to Tom n Toms and tried the cheese garlic toast. Sounded good in theory – big chunk of bread like you guys had, but cut in half with a slice of melted plastic cheese sandwiched in there, covered with garlic butter on top and a sprinkling of parsley… In theory a yummy savory meal… In reality – they poured sugar syrup over the entire thing… yep… sugary cheesy garlic toast…

  17. “special circle of hell”… FIREFLY! 8DDDD

  18. i would love minus 19… it’s -34 in winnipeg right now…. with a blizzard

    I have tasted similar toast in Indonesia but it’s from Japan. It has similar thickness but they toast the bread until the crusts were crunchy. They cut the crusts for you so that you don’t have to make a mess cutting the crust. The bread was crunchy on the outer part yet soft on the inside. They serve it with many toppings but I like the peanut butter w/ vanilla ice cream the best. I’m sure there are some in Korea, too. You just need to find those hidden gems :)

  20. Interesting. I’ve had Japanese honey toast, and it’s amazing and delicious! Shokudo here in Hawaii has a particularly good one. Theirs is a loaf of fluffy Japanese bread that’s been hollowed out, cut into squares, and toasted. The toasted squares are then put back into the toasted crust, covered in butter and honey and topped with ice cream and other toppings (like chocolate or cinnamon) if desired. So simple and delicious, you’d think it’d be hard to get wrong, but I guess it’s very possible…

    i have never seen martina look so punished/horrified by anything (especially a dessert!) … that toast shop must have been that bad! as soon as u guys said “wonder bread” though, i already started to cringe lol

  22. Nasty…and not in the good way. Good thing I am allergic to wheat and have an excuse to avoid that… Speaking of that, do you think that a Celiac like myself would be able to eat well in Korea?

    omg… as a person who’s dieting right now, i feel your pain… and also… WHY DID YOU GO EAT THAT?!? lol.

    we actually have this kinda of dessert in Japan as well, though it usually has butter and honey on it with icecream, and it comes really hot, so like the ice cream is melting on it… it’s always been really really good every time i’ve eaten it. but yeah, it’s just bread with ice-cream so… if i’m gonna sacrifice my diet for sweets, it’s definitely not my first choice!!

    still i’m sure people who don’t live in asia got a kick outta watching you guys eat that, haha… ^_-

    oh, and another (not totally related) comment… i always thought that korea was really really similar to japan and similar weather as well but… how come it’s so cold?!?!? it doesn’t really ever go under 0C in tokyo… i feel for you guys!!!

  24. Wait…was it even toasted? How can it be toast without being TOASTED?

  25. Martina did you take Simon last name when you got married?

  26. someone should totally make a collection of the kaibaiboh moments of simon and martina. i mean, i can’t help but noticing,most of the times martina has to do something embarassing/doesn’t want to do because of it. :)

  27. lmao…kdrama trope!!! Too perfect Simon! I actually got tears I laughed so hard when you did that. Martina’s facial expressions were perfect! You guys were just too precious in this video.

  28. Lol, when was the last time Martina won Kai Bai Bo?

  29. I WANT YOUR SCARF! It would go super awesome with my Olympic gloves.

  30. I love copious amounts of bread and sugar
    I just hate white bread so I eat wheat :P

  31. “If I play with my food, I’d go to hell” “There is a special circle of hell for children who play with their food” Wow, that was funny! Makes me wonder what your childhood was like, Simon. The trauma!!!!

  32. Savory things should never be made sweet…
    I’d still try it out of curiousity though. But holy banana biscuits! That thing was huge! :O
    You guise should fapfap at one of Super Junior’s cafes! Kona Beans, Mouse Rabbit, K-Story…it would be awesome! :D

    I don’t know how different this toast is from the toast in Japan, but the toast I had in Japan was GREAT! It was about an inch thick (2.5 cm) and it was crunchy yet soft at the same time. The only thing it had on top was plain vanilla ice cream and honey. I was really skeptical at first too, but I loved it! So much so that I tried to recreate it after I went back home, but it didn’t work. OH! Btw, I got it at a karaoke bar. I had some great toast while I was singing my guts out. It was wonderful. :D

  34. Reminds me of when my dad used to say that all he had going to lunch was bread with butter and sugar on it… (but that was rural Ireland in the 60/70s)

  35. you should try Isaac Toast. I had their egg, ham&cheese sandwich….OMG it was SO GOOODDDD…best toasted sandwich i’ve had in a long time.

    I want none of what you guys are having, but after reading your blog I want some toast with butter and cinnamon sugar. This craving is going to slay me for the next 5 1/2 hours while I’m at work.

  37. It takes supposedly twelve tries to get used to a dish that you originally don’t like. Ten more to go!

  38. That toast looks very…unfortunate. I’m not a huge fan of white bread in general, so this doesn’t exactly appeal to my senses :P

  39. when I think of Korean honey toast, I always think of those slices that are cut into like nine pieces, dunked in butter and sugar and toasted into caramel-y goodness pero like wowie zowie what you had right there was literally bread with stuff poured on top which did not look appetising at all. I am so sorry.
