Isaac Toast & Coffee
因為一早的行程安排去梨花大學，所以我們早餐來吃韓國版的美而美– Isaac Toast & Coffee 早餐店！
Isaac Toast & Coffee 是韓國連鎖的吐司專賣店，在首爾除了梨大店外，很多著名景點也有，例如：明洞、東大門、新村、弘大、新設洞、惠化、會賢…每家分店公休日可能有些許不同，大家要再自己注意。
Since we planned to visit Ewha Women’s University, so we came to a Korean version of ‘Mei & Mei’ (Famous breakfast chain in Taiwan) called Isaac Toast & Coffee.
Isaac Toast & Coffee is a Korean chain sandwich shop. Besides having one at Ewha, Seoul, they are also located in many famous touristy spots such as Min-dong, Dongdaemun, Sinchon, Hongdae, Sinseol-dong, Hyehwa, Hoehyeon, etc… Each branch may be closed on a different day, so please pay extra attention here.
From Ming-dong(where we lived), we took the subway toward Dongdaemun station until we reach the Dongdaemun history and culture park station, then we transfer on the 2nd line (green)
Then, take the train toward the Ewha Womans University (Korean subway has clear signs everywhere, make us not afraid of getting on the wrong subway)
We are here at the 241 Ewha Womans University station of subway 2nd line.
Take the 2nd exit of the Ewha Womans University station
Take a left after taking the exit and follow the downhill road. You can see many students rushing to classes on the road.
When you see ‘OLIVE YOUNG’, take a left and you will arrive at Isaac Toast & Coffee after 100 more meters.
Isaac Toast & Coffee is on your left hand side.
Menu not only has Korean, Chinese, English, and Japanese, it also has pictures. (You don’t need to worry about not knowing how to order)
The kitchen is half-open so you can see the food making process. Isaac Toast & Coffee is known for making your order right after you order. They spread butter on the toast and cook until golden yellow on the hot metal plate, then they put other ingredients on it.
You can see in the picture, the egg is made using a toast sized square mold. This makes the egg the same size as the toast so that every bite will guarantee tasting both. I think that is very thoughtful of them. The egg also has some corn bits in it to create more texture.
After about 10 minutes, our sandwiches have arrived.
▲烤肉MVP吐司 Bulgogi mvp toast，2800韓元
There is egg, veggie, bulgogi, cheese, and sauce
Isaac Toast & Coffee’s toast has a thin layer of mayo on it. It tasted both sweet and salty. Also, the toast is quite crispy, very delicious! The bulgogi, cheese, egg, and lettuce creates a layered texture. I could not stop myself from eating this. Along with my beloved latte, quite a amazing start to a day!
心得：吐司表層塗抹奶油煎到金黃酥脆，無論是顏色和香氣都很吸引人，再放上生菜, 蛋, 和其他配料。吃完非常有飽足感。而且ISAAC Toast&Coffee細心的讓吐司裡面的配料和吐司一樣大，讓我每口都吃得到料. 這點讓我非常滿意。不過須注意的是，現場吃的口感最好喔，因為如果外帶的話，吐司會被包裝紙悶住而軟掉。
The toast with butter at Isaac Toast & Coffee was cooked until golden brown which has a crispy texture. Both the color and smell are pleasing. The lettuce, egg, and other ingredients make me very full after eating the sandwich. I really enjoy the fact that all the ingredients were created to be the same size as the toast which allowed me to taste multiple ingredients every bite. One thing to note is that I would eat the sandwich right away. If you take the sandwich to go, the toast will become soft due to being enclosed inside a bag.
