French Baker, My First Love!

French Baker celebrated its sweet 25th years baking in the Philippines. The anniversary celebration also highlights French Baker's “Visit Paris in Summer 2015”, a raffle promo where one lucky winner will get the chance to visit and experience Paris, France next year.

French Baker was one of my favorite bakeshops since 2002, when I started earning! SM North EDSA branch and their small branch in SM Cubao were my favorite places and I always go for that creamy lasagna. The menu was a little pricey but you get what you paid for - the food is always tasty and yummy! Another favorites are the Chicken A La King and Creamy soup in a bread bowl during rainy days. If time permits, I would queue and grab that 50% off pastries at 9:30 pm. :)

“It was in 1985 when I traveled to Europe for the first time that I fell in love with PARIS and her baked goodies. Since then I’ve dreamt of doing the same so that I can impart a similar experience to our kababayans in the Philippines,” shared Johnlu G. Koa, professor turned entrepreneur, and now Founder and CEO of The French Baker.
