Last weekend, I had a delicious bread, whose name was Sal-ra-man-d. Since English is not my native language, its name was written in non-english. It sounds like french. But I don't know its exact name. It is somewhat like a pound cake, with some cheese flavor. I think it is made of cream cheese. Is here anyone who knows its origin, or its original name. It is very hard to google what this bread really is.

    Could you include the Korean name of the pastry (in Hangul)? I took my best guess (살라만ㄷ) and Google Translate told me it meant Salamanca - although I see that Salamanca should really be written 살라망카, so maybe Google Translate doesn't know what it's talking about. If it is meant to be Salamanca, maybe there's a pastry called Salamanca (though I've never heard of it), or maybe it's just someone's idea of a pastry eaten in Spain.

    "cream cheese bread" doesn't tend to be an English thing ... I'd say it's probably from a Slavic or Scandinavian area, but I'm just finding a lot of recipes for "cream cheese bread" (eg, thekitchn.com/… ) without what the name is in its original language.

  • @Juhasz As you said, its Korean name is 살라망드(your guess is nearly perfect, notice that a Korean letter must contains at least one vowel). But only Korean bakeries has this name of bread and it is little weird to me.

  • Thanks. I thought that ㄷ looked wrong on its own. I like Joe's idea about something Scandinavian. I don't know enough about those cuisines to wager a guess, though.

According to this Korean blog post it is Salamande bread, and the packaging calls it "Taste of Europe". You know Koreans love a good European bakery.

    It seems the name is invented in Korea, because there is no post on Salamande outside Korea. Don't you think it is very strange.
