Tous les Jours Philippines
With a very cute bike as a prop, Tous les Jours became even more interesting in my eyes, if that was even possible.
In fact, Tutapel wanted to ride it, so much so that he became kinda frustrated when I told him, "Oh no, you can't."
Tous les Jours Philippines
Upon entering, I noticed this display and once I've processed that I was indeed looking at Tous les Jours' signature cakes, I gasped with wide-eyed amazement.
These gorgeous cakes are indeed the hook that draws clients to get to know more about Tous les Jours and I believe the company knows that fully well.
In fact, when we were there, I was sort of competing with a male customer in capturing the cakes' best angles.
Judging from the bakery's price range, you must really want to impress someone to actually buy these cakes.
Or if you're a koreanovela addict like me, you can't help but purchase one just to be a part of the Hallyu Wave in some way.
Oh, I know you want to get one right now, don't you?
Well, before you head to SM The Block, let me show you some of their signature cakes alongside their price tags to help you manage your budget somehow.

Tous les Jours Roll Cake (Php 298)

Rght: Tous les Jours Kiss Strawberry Roll (Php 498)
If you're not in the mood for cheesecakes, then rolls might be the ones you're looking for.
What's good about them is that they are a tad cheaper than the decorative cakes.
If you want to compare them with Red Ribbon's, for Php 298, you can already have the large Red Ribbon roll.
But then again, if you're looking for something relatively new, then maybe Tous les Jours' rolls might tickle your fancy.
Tous les Jours Financier (Php 78)
If you're not really into cakes, maybe you might want to try this pack of Financiers instead. Oh, they were really good!
I became equally excited when I saw a variety of Korean drinks on the glass shelf.
Honestly, I've only tried the Au Cafe Lait variants and the Binggrae Banana Milk.
Makes you want to try them all at once, right?

It turned out that Tous les Jours offers a plethora of breads which reminded me of BreadTalk.
Take a look and you'll understand why.

Tous les Jours Cream Cheese Bread
Tous les Jours' array of breads and pastries
After snapping some photos, I was ready to get a few baked stuffs.
I settled for these four goodies:
Top Left: Tous les Jours Sweet Red Bean (Php 38)
Boasts of a flaky shell, sweet red bean filling and topped with black sesame seeds.
Top Right: Tous les Jours Custard Cream Bread (Php 38)
Another soft bread variety that oozes with a semi-sweet cream filling.
Bottom Left: Tous les Jours Vegetable Croquette (Php 48)
Deep-fried bread that boasts of a crusty topping, soft center filled with a delicate blend of mashed potato and corn bits.
It's not sweet nor salty but surprisingly delicious!
Bottom Right: Tous les Jours Milk Bun (Php 48)
Soft bread with a semi-sweet cream filling topped with choco bits.
Is Tous les Jours worth another visit?
That's a resounding YES as far as I'm concerned.
For me, the best part about their breads is that they are not as sweet as our local varieties.
Somehow that translates to taking a peek at Korean culinary arts.
And I'm not complaining at all.
Since Tous les Jours and Etude House Philippines are sister companies...
... all Etude House Pink Cardholders get a free bread in their every purchase.
And the best part is in a couple of weeks, Tous les Jours SM The Block will be selling cake slices so that customers can sample each confection in a more affordable way.
