From Haeundae Beach, it was only 2 subway stops to Centum City, Line 2 on the Busan subway system.
Centum City houses the world largest department store that is Shinsaegae.
To be honest, I have no idea how big the entire place is because when we came out from the subway station, it was connected to the building so it was only when we left when I realised that I don’t even know how the building looked like on the outside. Hahaha.
There really isn’t much to buy inside because it’s all the high-end branded stuff. There is also a Lotte Department Store in another part of the building but I never went there because the Shinsaegae side was big enough and we arrived around 8+ pm KST and the store was closing at 9 pm KST.
In the basement where the food is at Shinsaegae, Centum City, there is this one particular stall that sells these sinfully delicious pastry taiyaki with an equally delicious red bean filling.
The regular taiyakis are like a cake (if you are not familiar with them) but these ones are made from super awesome buttery pastry. We actually discovered them by chance because we smelt the thing and followed our noses to the source.
The pastry is SO DAMN GOOD!!! It’s ₩2,800 each but so worth the 20 minutes queue for it. I’m drooling as I type this even.
Now I’ll have to check out if the Shinsaegaes in Seoul sell this awesome pastry taiyaki. Please let me know if you know of where else in Seoul that sells this. Thanks!
