K-drama fans may be familiar with Isaac Toast, a popular toast sandwich chain from South Korea. The toast shop was featured in the drama Jang Bo-ri Is Here! 张宝利来了 and that was how I got to know about it too. And the good thing is, we don’t have to travel all the way to South Korea to try the toast as they are now located in Singapore and Malaysia too.
Issac Toast Singapore
Isaac Toast has two outlets in Singapore. One at Plaza Singapura (#B2-42) and the other at Waterway Point (#01-K6). Check out their menu below.
Pretty good selection of toast sandwiches to choose from.

Isaac Toast Malaysia
And in Malaysia, Isaac Toast has opened 6 outlets in total. Three in Kuala Lumpur (KLIA 2, The Gardens Mall & Avenue K), one in Petaling Jaya (1 Utama Shopping Centre) and two in Johor Bahru (Paradigm Mall & City Square Mall).
We visited the outlet at Paradigm Mall in JB.
Isaac Toast & Coffee is located on Level 3 of Paradigm Mall.
The variety of sandwiches here isn’t as big as Singapore’s. However in terms of prices, it is more economical (price is lower by approx. 25%) to eat this in Malaysia than in Singapore based on the current exchange rate. Not cheap by Malaysia standards though.
Do note this is a No Pork No Lard eatery.

Ice Vanilla Latte RM12
We had an iced vanilla latte that was pretty ordinary. Should have requested for it to be less sweet as it was too saccharine for my liking.
That’s why Isaac can open so many toast shops! 😆
Chicken Bacon Cheese Special RM13
I liked that there was so much going on in this sandwich. All that amount of ingredients really made this sandwich look so substantial and satisfying. Definitely could be a meal on its own. The toast was buttery and fragrant. Enjoyed the crunchiness of the shredded cabbage too. Could also taste pickled radish that gave a nice refreshing tang. My only gripe was that this sandwich tasted more sweet than savoury because it had granulated sugar in it. That’s probably what makes Isaac Toast different from other toast sandwiches. If I were to have this again next time which I wouldn’t mind, I’d definitely go for no sugar.
Same for the Pizza toast sandwich. It also tasted more sweet. The tomatoey sauce was what made the toast taste like pizza. Loved how the cheese became stringy when I bit into the sandwich.
I like my savoury sandwiches to be savoury so that sugar sweetness doesn’t quite work for me. But I just love how each sandwich is packed with so much filling that every bite of it is really satisfying. For those of you who don’t have a sweet tooth, you may want to ask them to skip the extra sugar when placing your order. Other than this, I think Isaac Toast is not bad if you want to have a change from the regular sandwiches.
