Sunday @ the French Baker

May 22, 2011 (Sunday) My favorite day of the week! Went to Saint Jude @10AM to hear mass with my mom and my sisters. The priest was new. I didn’t hear unusual word pronunciations, alright, but I didn’t like his homily. Tad boring and dragging. (Sorry!) Nothing beats Fr. Linus! The choir was new, too—much better, I must say. They actually sounded like angels. IMG_0226Fast forward to lunch time. Where else do you think we dined in? The French Baker!!! Ahhh… sometimes I wonder if The French Baker knows how much I love him (him?) So I was feeling pretty damn good since The French Baker has always been a place of solace for me. But that particular Sunday, this waitress who was serving us had a freaking frowning face drawn all over her face all throughout the time we were there! She gave us such an awful service. Nakasimangot all the fucking time we were there. She was sooooo freaking annoying! And to think it was like 11 in the morning. IMG_0231Anyway, enough about the bitch. Let’s talk FOOD! I didn’t want to order a meal meal per se since I wanted something new. I think I’ve already tried every meal from the menu! So I ordered a Ham and Cheese Quiche Lorraine (PHP 82.00) and a Blueberry Danish (PHP 60.00) Quite a handful? I know! Don’t worry, I didn’t finish it all. IMG_0229IMG_0228My sister Luzelle had her Chicken ala King. Looks incredibly delicious, I KNOW! Haven’t tried it yet! Such a big plate. Just look at those greens! And the sauce! I could care less about the peas and carrots, though.IMG_0235Every time I eat @ The French Baker, I never forget to take a snapshot of the paper placemat. They change designs occasionally and tell me, what is not to freaking love about Paris?IMG_0236If you love The French Baker the way I love it, you’d probably know that the Soup On A Bread Bowl is famous. The soup for that day was Potato and Bacon—ahhh perfect! It’s our family’s favorite! We love everything about it! Anchor’s butter is perfect as always. It’s just like THE perfect food ever.IMG_0240IMG_0242So I asked for my pastries to be reheated…and look how they were served to me… ALMOST BURNT but not quite. The Quiche Lorraine was exquisite! And the Blueberry Danish ought to be rewarded with an Oscar. IMG_0246According to Mr. Google, “Quiche Lorraine is an oven-baked dish made with eggs and milk or cream in a pastry crust. Usually, the pastry shell is blind-baked before the other ingredients are added. Other ingredients such as cooked chopped meat, vegetables, or cheese are often added to the egg mixture before the quiche is baked. Quiche is generally an open pie (i.e. it does not include a pastry covering), but may include an arrangement of tomato slices or pastry off-cuts for a decorative finish. Quiche may be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, depending on local customs and personal tastes.” To cut it all short, it’s a freaking yummy thing made of bread, cheese and ham. I felt so stuffed after eating it—and I couldn’t even look at my BlueBerry Danish anymore. But I told myself… “Have some dessert, Say!” Hahaha and so I did. The blueberry just melts in your mouth! The bread and the cream filling was just muy bien. Exquisit. Exquisite. I had to give the rest to my Mom… I finished like half of it, and then I was done.
My sister Lady ordered Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa. Which I’ve already tried before. The mango salsa was too vinaigrette-y! Almost too spicy! But the chicken? Ahh… perfect 10. Grilled to perfection. No blood inside, too!IMG_0254My mom ordered Baked Chicken Rice. Yummy chicken! I was able to taste it. All I could say was… “Mmmm!” Nothing too extraordinary but it’s something that’s worth having for brunch or dinner.IMG_0255I wanted an Ice Cream Shake, but I know I’m controlling portions and all that shizzle. So it was fateful that the Hot Chocolate in a Pot was available! Ahhh… I’ve been meaning to try it ever since! This “pot” costs PHP 99.00 only, and it could totally suffice for 3 persons already. Antonio Pueo cocoa blocks are used to create this fucking amazing beverage. If the word “fucking” didn’t express how good this tastes, then I don’t even know what to say anymore.IMG_0256IMG_0257My sister Iza ordered the Chicken Cordeon Bleu, but unfortunately, she took a bad shot for it hence, no photo! But you know the Cordon Bleu… I’ve tried it before. Tooooo stuffing! I’d eat it with the bun instead of the rice!
What a perfect meal.
