  • Korean. lit. "barley bread", though this is deceiving, as boribbang is definitely a confection item. as far as I can tell, bread is a sort of cake in the Korean thought process and manner of eating. the Western-style breads in bakeries, with the exception of the baguette, all contain higher amounts of sugar than their counterparts in the West. also, bread is not eaten as a staple but on its own, between meals, shared with company. children often say, "my favourite food is bread" (and I have NEVER heard a child say, "my favourite food is rice"), which marks it as a special category.

  • Sounds like Indonesian bread, which inevitably has a sugary taste.

  • such a pity. though I did find that in Hong Kong, there was plenty of savoury bread, and also the sweet stuff wasn't so wretchedly bad (boribbang excepted; it's delicious)
