Cream cheese and garlic bread. A recent combination that has made its way up the popularity charts in Korea and all over the world. While the bread is not exactly street food, it can easily be found in bakeries in Korea.
The bread comes in a round shape with cuts, sort of like a blooming onion.
Baked to crisp perfection and at the centre – a heap of cream cheese filling and generous amounts of garlic butter.
Sounds weird? Surprisingly, it’s a combination that works.
Thankfully, you can also try the infamous Korean Garlic Cream Cheese Bread right here in Singapore. Here’s where:
