Earlier this year Hannam Chain Del Amo opened up in Torrance, California. The Korean market was a highly anticipated opening and lots of South Bay locals like myself was happy to welcome the new market offering fresh fruits, vegetables and Korean goods. This month Hannam Chain Del Amo opened up a food court in their market and brought even more (food) happiness to the Torrance. The new food court has currently three occupants: Paris Baguette, Kyodong Noodle and Goobne Chicken.
It’s a welcome sight to see Paris Baguette back in the South Bay! A few years back they had a lovely store in Redondo Beach, California and I loved their fresh bread offerings. Unfortunately the Redondo Beach location closed but I am happy to see them now in Torrance! My Hello Kitty Foodie recommendation here is their almond croissants. Yes; it’s another croissant crush recommendation. I love the huge, flaky buttery croissants topped with lots and lots of almonds.
Kyodong Noodle is also not new the South Bay as they have a location in Gardena, California. This eatery offers authentic Korean dishes such as Woolpong (White Seafood Noodle Soup) and Jjajangmyun (Black Bean Noodle). My Hello Kitty Foodie recommendation is the Black Bean Noodle. It’s like a Korean pasta with sweet and savory black bean sauce. The black bean sauce even has little chunks of meat in it.
Last but not definitely not least is Goobne Chicken. This place is definitely a new favorite of mine. Goobne in Korean means “it’s roasting.” This eatery offers fresh roasted chicken in a variety of flavors. The flavors range from original to volcano. My Hello Kitty Foodie recommendation is the Galbi. The Galbi chicken is flavored with Goobne’s special sauce that is flavored with 10 different Korean domestic fruits and vegetables. I love the smoky, sweet taste.
Paris Baguette, Kyodong Noodle and Goobne Chicken are just the start of yummy eateries to come to Hannam Chain Del Amo. I am definitely excited to see what other places will open up.
We now have a little taste of France in Redondo Beach! Paris Baguette Bakery Cafe has recently opened up in Redondo Beach and this place is sure to make you say “Je T’aime Paris Baguette.”
It is truly not hard to fall in love with this cute little bakery cafe. Walking in you are greeted with a wonderful assortment of French bread and pastries. They have a wonderful array of both sweet and savory goodies for you to enjoy. Among the delicious sweet treats are raspberry cream cheese and blueberry cream cheese croissants, lemon pain aux raisin bread and chocolate croissants. (I love how the raspberry cream cheese croissant has lots of sweet raspberry jam in it! I also love that the lemon pain six raisin bread has swirls of cream cheese on top!) Savory delights can be found in their ham and cheese panini and their hash brown bread. (I am simply crushing how the ham and cheese panini has a hint of pesto! This Hello Kitty Foodie is also enamored with the hash brown bread that is packed with a whole hash brown, ham and cheese!)
To go along with their fresh baked offerings, Paris Baguette has a full coffee menu with iced coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, americanos, mocha and drip coffees!
It is no secret that I love cute coffee houses and Paris Baguette just made me oh so happy with their fragrant cup of hazelnut coffee. A croissant plus their coffee is truly a match made in heaven!
Last but definitely not least, is their beautiful desserts.
It is truly every sweet tooth’s dream come true here. They have various cream puffs, fruit tarts, cheesecake, cake rolls, cakes and macarons! They also have “Delightful Bites” of cookies in cranberry almond flavor and salted caramel chocolate in cute small mason bars. These sweet treats are perfect for a small afternoon snack or dessert!
From their freshly bakes French bread and pastries to their fresh brewed coffee and their beautiful cakes and dessert, it is hard not to fall in love with Paris Baguette! It makes my heart happy to see this new bakery open up in Redondo Beach!
