I blame two years of non-cooking essentials interaction for my constant need to eat out. However, dinner at the French Baker reminds me that eating out can be a good thing. It's one of the pricey (for me) places that actually have a good return for your money. It has a homey appeal, too. I wish they have a separate branch that isn't located in a mall.
Anyway, I was feeling a little heavy and guilty of all the cholesterol intake that I decided to go only for soup and my all time favorite bread -- Croissant.
|Soup Starter | Php 63.00|
I opted to go for the Soup Starter, their soup of the day. After all, I love thick, creamy soup and croutons! I am a sucker for bread. Their soup started comes along with a wide bread stick with black and white sesame seeds, they call it lavash bread cracker. I know a classy resto when I eat those oven-fresh crisp bread.
|Butter Croissant | Php 43.00|
|Grilled Chicken & Mango Salsa | Php206.00|
|Four Seasons, 0.5 Caraffe | Php72.00|
We ordered Four Seasons in a half caraffe. Taste was rich and was perfect for the somehow bland taste of what I was eating, the butter croissant. I like how a slice of orange and a leaf of parsley(?) can add sophistication to the drink. They serve their water in a caraffe with a slice of lemon and a slice of orange too.
5 out of 5 sporks, as usual
There was a little delay on my credit card payment process, but it was fixed by their officer quickly. No fuss.
