Busan Bites: Four of Namcheon-dong’s Best Bakeries - Okmidang
If you’re walking around Namcheon-dong and the scent of hot, fresh-baked bread starts to fill your lungs, chances are you’re probably in Bbangcheon-dong.
The nickname, combining Namcheon-dong with the Korean word “bbang” for bread, was affectionately given to celebrate about 20 small and large bakeries, both well-established veterans and up-and-coming startups, clustered around Namcheon Station.
According to Dynamic Busan, they’ve introduced a self-guided tour focused on four favorites from Bbangcheon-dong.
This bakery is easily recognized by its white house-shaped sign and unique interior design, housed in a gigantic two-story building with a pointed roof. Its most well-known menu item is a Basil Chiffon Cake, with its spuit – a thin plastic tube – filled with olive oil that can be drizzled on the cake. Closed on Tuesdays.
How to get there: Namcheon Station (Metro line 2), exits 1 or 3. The bakery is about a five-minute walk from the exit, located between two residential area alleys.
