Sandwich lovers rejoice, Jeezle is your saviour!
With all of the new restaurants springing up in Ulsan’s ‘new downtown’ (Samsan-dong), it may become tough to decide where to spend your lunch money. Jeezle is certainly a top contender for your hard earned won, and if you love fresh bread, fresh veggies, and cheese, it may be at the top of your list. Located on Samsan-ro between Hyundai Department Store and the New Core Outlet (though, on the opposite side of the street) it is a very easy place to find. Even more convenient is the bus stop that is literally right outside the front door.
Jeezle’s certainly has a sandwich shop feel to it. The interior is decorated with wood and exposed brick and looks more like a sidewalk bistro than it does a restaurant, a look that is topped off by a post-box that is used for dinners to leave their comments. The layout is excellent, with a focus on comfort rather than volume. Each table has ample space for people to sit and enjoy their meal without being crowded and there is even a portion of the restaurant with couch seating for extra comfort. Those interested in a group lunch atmosphere may opt to eat in the conference room that is separated from the rest of the restaurant by glass walls and doors.
The best part of Jeezle is certainly the fresh baked breads and high quality ingredients that go into their sandwiches. Walking into the shop you are immediately greeted by a wall of fresh baked bread and stands of fresh fruit. Delicious tomatoes, crispy lettuce and spinach, fresh sliced deli meats, and delicious cheeses set Jeezle apart from other “sandwich” shops in Ulsan. Though the sandwiches are a little light on the meat, they certainly make up for it with cheese that is literally spilling out of the sides. The menu includes options for vegetarians (like the grilled veggies & brie cheese on a ciabatta bun!) as well as chicken, roast beef, ham, and seafood options.
Sandwich prices at Jeezle range from 6,500w to 11,500w. Salad and bread combos are available for 11,500w to 13,000w. Coffee and tea are also available with all flavours and sizes falling in the 3,000w to 4,000w range. Also on the menu are fresh fruit smoothies (4,000w – 5,000w). Additionally, you can buy loaves of fresh baked focaccia bread for 4,000w. Click on the picture of their menu for a larger version and to see everything that they have to offer.
