Perfect Simple Sandwiches

Hi everyone! I'm happy to start blogging again after the tough week we had (Boston Strong!!!). I still have a lot of photos to share from our honeymoon and today I want to talk about our favorite breakfast place in Seoul. Almost every morning, James and I bought sandwiches at this place call Isaac which was just a few steps away from our hotel.

They were simple sandwiches with just ham, egg, and cheese but they were delicious! They were made to order so the sandwiches were nice and warm. The bread was perfectly toasted with a bit of butter. There was some sort of sauce on it too. I'm not sure what it was but it was slightly sweet and made the sandwiches extra tasty. We looked forward to eating them every morning. (Don't worry, we still ate plenty of yummy Korean food!)

We really love finding little places like this when we travel. The funny thing is that we both thought this was a mom-and-pop business because it was tiny and the same nice lady made our sandwiches every time. It wasn't until a few weeks ago when I watched Eat Your Kimchi that I found out that Isaac is actually a very popular chain in South Korea with thousands of stores! So weird that we didn't see any other one the entire time we were there. (Maybe it's a good thing because I would've been tempted to eat it all the time! lol)

Happily waiting for our sandwiches :)
James tried a "VIP" toast one morning while I stuck with my regular order :) The VIP had a burger patty, a fried egg, shredded cabbage, pickles, and a different type of sauce. It was good but we both like the classic one better. 
They are known as toasts in Korea and they are so satisfying. The best thing is that they only cost about two dollars! I highly recommend them :)

Btw, I love watching Simon and Martina's videos on Eat Your Kimchi. They are such a cute and fun couple. Their videos were helpful and fun to watch when I was planning our trip.


  1. omg....those toastie sandwiches look yummers!!!! I know what you mean about using simple ingredients yet they taste so yum! Sometimes i enjoy eating the simple ham/egg sandwiches or condensed milk spread on toasts you get in the local canteens in HK as well. Hope you know which kinda sandwiches i'm referring to, lol.

    Looks like such a fun trip!
