Let’s be honest – Isaac Toast is seriously getting quite overrated. Don’t get me wrong, their toasts are delicious and does its job well filling stomachs while on the go, but it’s time to move on and try other toast options in Korea.
Egg Drop (에그드랍)
This is the trending American style toast joint that is catching everyone’s hearts and stomachs after opening its first 2 stores in Seoul late last year.
Their toasts are crispy as compared to Isaac Toast’s, and the scrambled egg accompanied with the egg sauce drizzled on the fillings is so, so good.
You can choose from the most basic Mr. Egg, to bestsellers like Bacon Double Cheeseand Avo Holic, with prices ranging from 2,400₩ to 4,400₩.
More stores are popping up all around Korea, and there’s even branches at Myeongdong and Sinchon now!

The Wave Toast(7,000₩) has indeed been catching waves on social media with its aesthetics. There’s two types to choose from – the pink version with strawberry jam, or the blue version with apple jam. You can even request to switch the jam flavours in your toast when ordering!

LA VIE DES MARIÉS (라비데마히)
This showroom and cafe not only has a pretty exterior and interior, it also sells a variety of toasts and drinks. Featured here is the Apricot Toast (5,500₩), which looks like an adorable fried egg on top of the toast! The Apricot Toast was initially introduced as a Season Toast, which as the name explains, is a toast with its toppings changing seasonally. Due to its popularity, it will continue staying on the menu (yay!) while a new season toast will be introduced for autumn.
