Paris Baguette ♥ 파리바게트

Paris Baguette 파리바게트 ( pronounced Pa-ri  by Koreans vs the American English Par-ris)  is a huge Korean bread and confectionery chain here~ It is really hard to walk a block without seeing one in Seoul.  I mean it, just try!  Paris Baguette is the actually the younger sister store of Paris Croissant (파리 크라상) which was founded in 1986 and is a more upscale cafe version with made-to order items, drinks, catering, and overall just feels a tad fancier… you see it around, but not nearly as much as PB. This chain has become so successful that it has opened up 17 shops in select locations in the USA over the last few years~ hurray!
