Korean ugly pretzels are coming to Singapore
Update (26 April 2018): Flavours and prices of these Korean ugly pretzels have been added.
Whenever Korean street food is mentioned, the more well-known ones such as tteokbokki or Korean sweet pancake come to mind immediately. Something that’s not so familiar to many fans would be Korean ugly pretzels, a sweet and chewy Korean snack, with looks similar to a twisted donut, but uglier like its name suggests. If you’ve not tried it before, don’t fret, as the first international branch of Monnani Kwabaeggi, which specialises in these Korean ugly pretzels, is scheduled to hit the shores of our little red dot on 24 April 2018.
These Korean ugly pretzels are made using glutinous rice. They are then deep-fried and rolled in a bed of sugar. At Monnani Kwabbaegi, there is also red bean pretzel in the shape of a round donut filled with red bean paste. These remind us of sweet red bean ham cheem peng, but in a much chewier form.
The first Monnani Kwabaeggi outlet in Singapore will be found in the CBD, at Hong Leong Building. If you’re an office bee looking for a mid-day snack, pop by for a quick treat! They have a total of five flavours awaiting you – Original ($1.40), Yuzu ($1.70), Korean Red Bean ($1.70), Premium Cheese ($1.90), and Premium Sausage ($3).
Address: 16 Raffles Quay, #B1-48, Hong Leong Building, Singapore 048581
