So, obviously, I meant to post this wayyyy earlier, sorry! (Notice the Santa theme coffee sleeve...but also, it's SO cute).
If you know me, I love a good deal. If you know me, you also know that I'm not much of a breakfast person.
But, there are THOSE DAYS, the stress-eating days where I'm never full. That's when this Paris Baguette deal came into play.
I'm not sure if it's available at every single Paris Baguette across Korea...or, I think it's not...it wasn't on offer at the one right by my house.
So, I always picked it up at the one right by my office.
The deal runs from 7AM to 10AM.
But basically, you can choose one of the three breakfast sandwiches and a coffee for 3500 KRW, which is a super good deal.
The coffee is just a PB Americano, so that means that it's quite...watered down, but for only 1000 KRW extra, it's okay...and I can always add an espresso shot in it at my office. (Or, you can add stick coffee to it later if your office doesn't have an espresso machine.)
The sandwich is either a ham and cheese croissant (what I usually get), a egg and cheese English muffin, or a scrambled egg bagel.
I try to not do it often because, since I don't like eggs, the two semi more healthy options are not appealing, and the croissant has an enormous amount of calories and cholesterol, but on THOSE days, I don't care. (If you're curious and you use the MyFitnessPal app, yes, Paris Baguette info is available.)
If you don't speak Korean, just tell the cashier that you want the "morning set" and they'll happily add the coffee to your order.
I was usually quite lucky that I was able to get "fresh" sandwiches whenever I arrived. So, if you're in the Yangjae area, here's a TIP. Go to the Paris Baguette out exit 2 at around 8:50 AM to get the fresh sandwiches. Also, the ajeosshi and ajumma are really nice and friendly and will remember you if you're a return customer...even if you're just another Korean face like me.
