Tous les Jours Everyday in the Philippines *Picture Heavy*

Tous les Jours, meaning "everyday", is a Korean-based bakery cafe offering unique selection of French-Asian baked goods and drinks. They have more than 1000 stores/franchise worldwide. And finally, they've arrived! Last November 11, or the famed 11.11.11 at 11 am, they inaugurated their flagship branch at The Block of SM North Edsa. As always, I'm delighted to be part of the celebration. Theatrics aside, there's so many elements to love and to rave. First off, more than speaking Korean, I actually have a better chance of speaking French, unbelievable but I actually devoted 2 years learning the language, and the fact that unlike my beloved South Korea, I actually went to France. Second of all, after all that has been said and done, I love sweets and carbo. ;-D And lastly, but certainly not the least, I'm such a big Hallyu fan, and seeing those Korean Pâtissiers (real or in costume?! indulge my curiosity, please do tell! ;-D) is like relieving a drama scene. *Swoon!* 

Pâtissiers at work. Tous les Jours lives by its commitment on serving only fresh baked bread. Fresh Bakery, Fresh Everyday. Their symbol of a mom on her bicycle after picking up freshly baked breads, and on her way home to feed a loving family, is also aptly showcased (minus the mom...that must be me! ;-D) at the photo wall during the opening event. 
Tous les Jours Philippines opens its first store at the ground floor of The Block, SM North Edsa, adjacent to the Hypermarket. 
I have to say, that after sampling, and just even eyeing their delectable offerings, I now have a higher bar set on my expectations of pastries, breads, and cakes. :-D Fawning aside, we, as in my very picky son, totally adores the goodies I took home from the opening event. ;-D It's one of those coveted moments that my son had to actually say "more, please!", and it's all because of those Asian Buns from Tous Les Jours. I just can't wait to let them try out the cakes from Tous Les Jours. And happily, November and December are months where we have much to celebrate, and a cake from Tous les Jours would definitely make them extra special. Not to preempt the opening event, here's a teaser of their cake offerings. ;-D

Love, Love, Love! Je T'adore! Tous les Jours offers variety of Cloud Cakes, Tiramisu, Mousse, Butter Cream, and Gift Cakes. At a very friendly price. ;-D

Hi Emsy, I did join your giveaway! Awww, sana I'll be lucky. :)

@Mommy Lyza: Favorite ko na talaga sila. Too bad lang we don't have a branch here pa. :( Awww...just keep updating your blog. It will come. :)

Des said...

Hi Clair: Oh that's too sad, about the picture with the master patissier. Or you mean even inside the store, not allowed din? Oh! Thankfully I took several photos na. But you can always take picture of what you get from them naman. I love their goodies. Lucky you that it's nearer your place. :)) Let us know what you tried too. :))

Thanks for posting about this Korean bakery. We get to see how their cakes looks. I like the bear cake and cake loaded with hearts. Pretty unique. Very intrigue about their pastries, maybe I should go and try them. thanks for the post.

About Me

My Photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
