Isaac Toast: The Korean version of Ramly burger

I swear this uses the same setup of the Ramly burger stalls over here. We were actually discussing on how easily this can be done in Malaysia – same hot plate, same skillet. Even the topping of shredded lettuce is similar. Same same but different different ya know? ;)

Isaac Toast is a franchise operation in South Korea that serves a variety of toasted sandwiches. Now, I was dubious at first too. Toasted sandwiches? It all tastes about the same everywhere. Okay, listen up, history lesson is in session:

Korean toast sandwiches started out as authentic street food in the same vein as silkworm pupa but got so successful it spawned a host of different franchises for toasted sandwiches. One of them is Isaac Toast.

What makes a toasted sandwich a Korean toast sandwich? That is a very good question…

…to which I have no good answer.

I suspect it has something to do with the egg in every sandwich – it is grilled with something that makes it taste sweet. That’s the best part about the sandwich; the savory taste combined with the saccharine omelet at the bottom turns this Korean toast from ordinary to exceptional.

I had the bacon (made from real oinking babis) toast sandwich which costs about 2,400 Won (about RM 6) and I loved it! The salty strip of streaky bacon contrasted with the sweet egg at the bottom. Delicious!

I only wished they put more bacon in. You can never have too much bacon! It’s scientifically impossible.

  1. Awww, man! Reading this post makes me wanna rush to the nearest Ramly burger stall and tapau my usual special burger. Except it’s 7am and not a burger stall in sight. I guess the amount of bacon is proportionate to the price you pay for it. LOL.

  2. Cheers: Heh! Yeah, best thing about Ramly – you can customize! =D

  6. i think d difference with d ramly burger is that these sandwiches are made by cute pretty korean girls but ramly burger is usually made by fat mid age men, drenched in sweat. :D

  7. WOW that looks great lah! somehow when korean/japanese prepare food, there’s that “Clean look” element present! Just like that Muji store in Singapore.. NICE :)
