Fish-shaped sweet buns called bungeoppang are one of the most popular street foods in Korea in winter. And now they are selling well at a branch of the Korean restaurant Bibigo in London's Soho for a whopping five pounds, which is equivalent to about W8,700.
Sold under the name of "Bibigo Goldfish," the snack there comes with ice cream, almonds, and blueberries on top and is admittedly a little bigger than typical buns here, which have a red-bean filling.
CJ Foodville, which runs the chain, said British customers were puzzled by the look at first, but they got used to it, and now it sells more than 20 servings a day.
