In the 13th episode of “Twenty Five Twenty One,” Na Hee Do (portrayed by Kim Tae Ri) asked Baek Yi Jin (portrayed by Nam Joo Hyuk) to treat her to some “Hoppang,” a warm snack with filling that is known in Korea, and is popular during the winter season.
Here are 5 places where you can get something similar to hoppang.
1.) Shi Lin
Although Shi Lin is not a Korean restaurant, the place offers authentic Taiwanese and Chinese cuisine including Xia Long Bao, dumplings, and buns. They offer both options from the series: Red Bean Bun (2pcs for 135 pesos) and Mushroom & Vegetable Bun (2pcs for 177 pesos).
The restaurant is available in Muntinlupa Alabang Town Center, Rockwell Power Plant Mall, Circuit Lane Makati, Serendra BGC, Shangri-La Plaza, Podium Mall, Estancia Mall, Ayala Trinoma, and Lucky Chinatown Mall.
Japanese bakery Kumori offers the Red Bean Bun option for only 47 pesos. Kumori has branches in SM malls, Ayala malls, and Gateway mall.
A Korean food company, Bibigo, offers different types of Steamed Dumplings (in buns) including a vegetable option. Bibigo is available in various Korean stores.
