A taste of Korea, "Tous Les Jours" baking in the Philippines on 11-11-11!The Philippines has been recently been hit by a huge wave, Hallyu wave that is. This paved way not only for Korean music and Korean drama's to enter the country but also some of the Korean related businesses.
A couple of years ago, More Korean groceries, restaurants, noraebang (Karaoke rooms), cosmetics shops and other Korean related stores, not to mention online shops that sells everything from Korean accessories to socks with KPOP idols printed on them, sprouted all over Metro Manila like mushrooms.
So why am I talking about this?
Its because another Korean business is coming to the country, and it makes me all hungry.
It is Korea's "Tous Les Jours", a bakery famous in Korea for their yummy breads and pastries.
For you to have an idea on what "Tous Les Jours" is, it was launched in Korea in 1996 to give consumers a totally satisfying bakery experience. They bake their breads on the branch to assure the freshness of their products.
They are the current leader in the bakery industry in Korea and is the first to introduce modern technologies such as TIS or the internet-based Total Information System for their branches and the mileage card systems for consumers (think of it as a loyalty card for customers ^^)
If you don't believe Tous Les Jours is famous, Check out the photo below, its from a scene in the Korean Musical Drama "Dream High", They used Tous Les Jours Lollipop pastries. ;)
