Busan Bites: Four of Namcheon-dong’s Best Bakeries - OPS
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.
A Busan original with franchises throughout the city and elsewhere, including in Seoul and Incheon, OPS is one of the largest bakeries in Busan and a must-visit for travellers. Opened in the late 1990s, its signature product is the large cream puff, a flaky and delicate jumbo-sized dessert bread filled with vanilla-flavored custard that is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. Breads made with seasonal strawberries are also popular in the spring.
How to get there: Namcheon Station (Metro line 2), exit 3. The bakery is about 250 meters from the exit.
