Tous Les Jour

Patti came to work one day bearing this delicious bread from a French bakery called, Tous Les Jour (in English, “everyday”). Which bread exactly I no longer recall but I do remember that it tasted so good I’m pretty sure I heard the birds singing.


Recently, as I was ambling down the Ayala walkway, asking the universe why being a girl has to be this expensive while toting plastic bags that contained toiletries, shoes, and whatnot, I spotted the newly opened TLJ branch at Greenbelt 5. After I cursed the universe anew for my insatiable appetite for pastries, I hurriedly retraced my steps and took the stairs down to TLJ. I was greeted by not one, not two, but all of the freaking personnel when I entered the bakery. All of them were saying, “Welcome to tooh-ley-ju,” which made me wonder if they were just being courteous or they were trying to teach me the correct pronunciation of the store’s name. FYI, I took a small course in French at Berlitz so I had an idea how it is pronounced, of course I kept this information to myself, smiled back, and checked the goodies on the shelves.

For some reason, the place didn’t have that delicious bread aroma that is common in bakeries (or is my nose clogged?). The baking area takes the left side of the room while the breads that were on sale are put on display on the right area.

As of this writing I’d been to the place twice. The second time I saw a queue of people waiting outside the store, which reminded me of that one time my friend and I waited at French Baker to avail of their half-price promo. I soon learned that TLJ indeed has a promo, it’s buy one take one on all of their bread, which starts at 8:30 PM.

Before I was able to purchase anything I took a moment to admire and despair in front of the glass shelves that contain their oh so cute and the why-do-they-have-to-be-so-expensive cakes. As if that ain’t heartbreaking enough, I learned, to my utter dismay, that they don’t sell them in slices.ย So all I could do was gaze at them longingly, drool, and murmur words of appreciation at their loveliness.

Then I went to buy breads. First that I got is Custard Cream Pastry (PHP38). Out of four breads that I tried, this is the best. It is soft and the custard filling is light and creamy.

This is Fresh Cream Bread (PHP 48) with thin flakes of almonds on top. I consumed it the day after I bought it, I’m not sure but I think it somehow reduced the quality of the bread.

I love red beans so this Sweet Red Bean Doughnut (PHP 38) won my approval. It is covered with cinnamon and sugar.

My least favorite is Lets Twist (cinammon sugar) (PHP 18). I just found the cinnamon a little bit too strong for my taste.

So that’s what I’ve tried at TLJ and I really hope that next time I make another post about it, I’m already talking about their cakes.

    This is where my brother bought my bday cake last year! Sa QC lang dati meron nito. Pero oo masarap nga dito. At ang funny pa nga kasi Korean company to tapos French ang baking style. Artisan bakery talaga sila. Try mo yung TWG sa GB.

    I'm glad that you heard the birds singing. But you should have made those staff of TLJ see birds flying around their heads for thinkingโ€”or probably doing something that made you thinkโ€”that you don't know how to pronounce French! Punch them! In the face. The sweet red bean donut looks yummy, btw.

    I think Cream Cheese Bread ung dinala ko dati. Haha. I'm not sure. I also brought Almond Croissant before. I went to the Greenbelt branch and it was indicated that they were on soft opening. So I think there'd be more pastries soon.;)

    Also, TRY THEIR APPLE PIES!
