Toast story, Hadan

Yes, I am reviewing a toast place. Why? Because unlike your local Issac Toast, this place brands cute animal faces into your toast. Yes it does.

Unfortunately, despite its cutsiness and convienient florist I wouldn’t recommend toast story for a first date. Why? Because as soon as you bite into one of these sandwiches, the sauce has got to go somewhere – and that somewhere is going to be your lap, your date’s lap, or (if you’re lucky) all over your face.

Location: At the bottom of the hill in front of Dong-A university, by the bookstore, near the subway station.
Prices
Toast: 1,000-3,000 won

I can’t wait to find this stuff in the market so I can eat it all the time!
