Branded biscuits Gyeongju is named after the neighborhood in which they were first made in the distant 1939. Today, the third generation of the family Choi makes them. Not to say that the taste of the red beans is what I dreamed all life. However, to expand culinary knowledge that will be useful. They are sold in boxes at the... More

There is always a long queue outside so you might have to wait a little bit. The bread itself is delicious, and the red bean filling has a unique sweet flavour.

We tried 3 red bean bread from different shops and this one was the best for us!! The pastrie is good, not too sweet, not too heavy and perfect to eat with a coffee or a tea. We ate them for breakfast or as an afternoon snack and we bought more when leaving the city!

We pass-by a big shop with many staff making the red bean bread. At first, we have hesitation to buy because the minimum quantity per box is 20 pieces. As we were very hungry after a full day visit, so we bought a box and taste it immediately. It was very good taste, all red bean paste but not very... More

Loved the bread. You have to buy it fresh at the big shop on the main road which has a large kitchen at the back and the sale counter at the front. We had it still hot and it was great.

Had a local take us to Hwangnam bread for a pre-lunch snack. They make a single product. It is similar to a kolach with a red bean filling. I am not a red bean fan but most of the rest of the group really liked them. They were fresh baked, still hot and needing to cool a little.

I visit this shop after sightseeing for the old town and culture in Gyeongju. This is a large building and have a lot of staff. Inside is clean. The test of bread is yummy. Not too sweet for me.

At first I thought it will taste like the usual bread with red bean paste filling, but a bite of Gyeongju bread had totally changed my thought. The red bean paste is not too sweet and its' taste somehow quite different than my expectation of the usual one. I am not sure either I was really hungry or the bread... More

I did understand why "this simple traditional bread filled with red bean inside" is famous and full of compliments in the moment I tried in first place. "Medium sweetness" had worked for both myself who's normally not into sweet things and my 7 year-old son who loves sweet desserts. Elder people also loves this as a dessert especially with tea...
