I just love anything Korean. Everything about them screams CUTE!. From their makeups, beauty products, clothes and shoes and even cakes and pastries!
Brace yourselves and get ready for your mouth to water. The following pictures could really be bad for you—at least, for your diet.
Ladies and gentlemen, Let me introduce to you, the first Korean Bakery opened here in Manila (drumroll please), TOUS LES JOURS
Curious about the brand name? I mean why French and yet it’s a Korean Bakery?
Tous Les Jours is French for “Everyday”, which most aptly conveys the idea of freshly baked goods.
Let me tell you a bit of history about TOUS LES JOURS (if you really can’t pronounce it just simply say TLJ)
Established in 1996, Tous Les Jours is a leading chain in the food industry’s premium café bakery segment. Tous Les Jours developed an on-site production system for each store to provide customers with 100-percent freshly baked products, as well as delectable cakes made from the finest ingredients and the most sophisticated fermentation technology.
September 1997 Opened 1st Tous Les Jours Store (Gu-Ri, Korea).
As of 2008, Tous Les Jours operates bakery-cafes across the United States as well as in Asian countries outside of Korea, including China and Vietnam. In the United States, we currently operate more than 10 stores in California, Texas, and Georgia. It is Tous Les Jours’ goal to continue to expand worldwide, so a broader population will be able to enjoy our freshly baked pastries daily.
Tous Les Jours is represented by a happy mother who has picked up freshly baked bread and is on her way home to feed a loving family. This image represents the homespun values of our company, which place our customers’ needs first.
Here are the pictures of that “Endless love” inspired bike parked outside the bakery.
I suddenly wanna watch Baker King. I’m sure Tak Gu also has one of these bikes. Love it.
Now, are you ready for some mouth-watering experience?
Custard Cream Pastry is one of the bread I’ve tried and it’s very delicious. The custard is soo creamy. Only P38.00.
Sweet Potato Pie P48
Cream Cheese Pastry at p68 and Apple Pie at p48
Let’s now check out their artistically designed cakes.
Beautifully designed cakes at affordable prices
Savannah will really love this cutie Bear cake for only p498.00
This one is for Zoey
Apple Inspiration. Like I just smelled apples from Seoul.
Perfect this Valentine’s Day. The Full of Heart cake p698.0
I am very impressed with their cakes. Prices are very reasonable too.
The salespeople are very nice and very accommodating. I also noticed how keen Koreans are when it comes to cleanliness. Look at how they even wore masks. I will definitely be back and will be their all-time “suki”
They also have juice drinks available. Home crushed peach juice contains a juicy peach pulp. and tastes naturally sweet.
A little trivia:: Koreans love peaches and they make sure they put it on every product they make.
I went home with my chosen cake. The Strawberry Inspiration Fresh Yogurt Cream Cake!
The cute box and the free pretty candles that goes with it.
Let’s now make a cake review
The teardrop-like on top of this cake is made of strawberry syrup.
The name tag on the cake is also edible. made of chocolate.
It takes enough courage for anyone to slice this cake coz it’s too beautiful to eat.
Fluffy pink chiffon cake combined with the creaminess and sweetness of the yogurt icing and the amount of sourness taste just complement each other. You’d beg for another slice after finishing one.
The green dusting on this cake is made of powdered tea leaf. It really tastes like you’ve eaten a leaf (don’t worry coz it’s also edible and can be eaten.)
Savannah tasting the “pasalubong”.
Valentine’s day is just around the corner and maybe you would wanna consider dropping by TLJ for a change in your cake preference. ( I am the type who loves to try new things and I really don’t like boring stuff, I’m a bit adventurous like that.)
