The French Baker Lunch

The French Baker Lunch

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."


  1. I love French Baker too :) I used to work there too for a while as a manager :) Sir Johnlu Koa was really strict but now that I am an entrepreneur myself, I come to appreciate his hardwork so much.

  2. I don't like 'Soup in a Bread Bowl'. :|
    Beef turnover FTW.

  3. i always buy the pandesal and the french bread kasi mura siya noon, but sometimes yong ibang special bread din nila kung may budget ako but I learn na mas mura sa iba pero masarap din

    to those who have, the price of the bread is quite ok, but to those who don't have. quite expensive di ba. ang price sana medyo babaan ng kaunti para mas maabot nila ang masang pinoys.

    in fairness, masarap ang bread nila.

  4. Hi... Looking ways to market your blog? try this:

  5. what is that bread like siding that came with the salad?
    i love clubhouse sandwiches but one of my favorite would have to be the clubhouse sandwich from pancake house!

  6. Just realized that I haven't eaten there for quite sometime now. (as Delifrance seems to pop into mind the moment French Baker is mentioned)

    Will check it out. Happy New Year Manila Foodistas!

  7. The Soup in a Bread Bowl is a real winner!!! LOVE it!!!

    Great place to eat.
