Le Alaska: A Fine Bakery with Excellent Sandwiches
Le Alaska looks like a quaint little bakery over by Apgujeong's Rodeo street but it is surprisingly big. There is a porch and a large seating area in the back. They offer a wide range of baked goods, coffees, shaved ice desserts and sandwiches.
Their croissants and flavored breads such as vegetable bakes and chocolate dipped croissants are excellent. Their regular loaves have excellent crunch and texture- you're not getting faux bread here.
They are quite creative in their presentation and their flavoring as well. They have iced popovers, banana apple breads and even praline layered breads.
Since I had something sweet to start, I went with the braided spinach bread. They rolled the bread around the vegetables so they stayed separate from the bread.
They pride themselves on using French flour.
For those looking for something more "Asian." Here is red bean stuffed bread, wrapped sausage, streudel bread and bagels.
I ordered a Rosemary ham sandwich which had some veggies, emmental cheese, and dijon mustard. One of the better sandwiches I have had in Korea.
