A Taste of Home?
Imagine my surprise when, upon entering Itaewon's newest bakery, I discovered a display case containing homemade butter tarts with a sign saying they're a treat originally from Turtleford, Saskatchewan. A quick google search uncovered only this: "A butter tart is a type of pastry best known as a Canadian treat... Butter tarts were a staple of pioneer Canadian cooking, and they remain a characteristic pastry of Canada, considered one of only a few recipes of genuinely Canadian origin." Regardless of whether Turtleford can claim them as its own, they are delicious and satisfy this sweet tooth like few other baked goods available in Seoul.
