The French Baker Lunch
December 6, 2009

After coming from The Manila Auto Salon 2009 at the SMX in Pasay, my dad and I decided to have lunch in SM Mall of Asia, specifically in The French Baker. Since I was a kid (or as long as I have known so), The French Baker's already serving quality breads and bake-shop items, which I enjoyed as I grew up.
"The French Baker has built its success out of its Founder and President Johnlu G. Koa’s vision for innovation: to take the idea of the neighborhood bakery to the next level, allowing every Filipino to enjoy freshly-baked, high-quality, and affordable breads," as its website tells us how this 20-year-old-industry came to be.
We ordered Caesar Salad, Soup in a Bread Bowl and Clubhouse Sandwich. All three are delicious and really filling. The prices of the dishes are quite affordable.
"Caesar Salad - Romaine and iceberg lettuces tossed with creamy dressing, fresh tomatoes, bacon chips, and parmesan cheese."
"Soup in a Bread Bowl - A best-seller! The French Baker’s soup of the day, served in hollowed-out crusty bread. Enjoy the soup and eat the bread too!"
"Clubhouse Sandwich - Chicken, ham, bacon, and cheese on white bread, served with potato chips and a side salad of greens drizzled with honey and balsamic vinegar."
