The ERIC KAYSER Difference! Natural Liquid Leaven, Baked Fresh in Manila by French Chefs :)

Instagram

ERIC KAYSER MANILA

ERIC KAYSER is an authentic French Artisan Boulangerie in Manila, which is a licensed partnership between Eric Kayser and his local partners, Jacky Ang, Kelvin Gaisano, and Chris Tiu. Eric Kayser has 96 stores in 17 countries, with the Philippines as the latest expansion.

You should notice the difference in the taste and texture of their bread because of their signature Natural Liquid Leaven, which sets it apart from the yeast-based breads in Manila. Eric Kayser demanded to have a commissary from the start and sent his trained French bakers in Manila to ensure the top quality of the breads, following the tradition of using a long natural fermentation process, slow kneading, and small-scale production.

Gone are the days of flown-in frozen French breads. The key is to baking fresh daily using top quality ingredients and following a strict artisan production process. Once you've tasted the Eric Kayser difference, it will be very hard to appreciate other French breads in town.

Here's what we love about Eric Kayser...

URBAN PANTRY is a gourmet neighborhood store curated by Chris Tiu's wife, Clarisse Ong-Tiu, and sister-in-law Carina Ong.

The twin sisters' criteria for the products they carry are only those they are willing to buy and consume at home with their family. They love natural, healthy, homemade, and artisan products that are mostly made locally and are ready-to-eat or ready-to-cook.

They also create their own Urban Pantry product line if there are no items available in the market that they like.

We sampled their selections and these are the 10 gourmet items we love...

LEMURIA: French Degustation with Wine Pairing of Lemuria's Bestsellers! @LemuriaGourmet

Instagram

LEMURIA Infinity 8-2.jpg

LEMURIA is a private dining French restaurant conceptualized by Mrs. Marina "Kitt" Schroeder, hidden in Horseshoe Village, Quezon City. It's name is inspired by the mystery behind the lost continent of Lemuria.

The cozy dining area is located on top of the Brumms Quality Wine Cellar, with a curated wine list from Germany, Austria, Romania, and other boutique wineries the Shroeders love.

After 8 years, it continues to be one of the most romantic garden restaurants in Manila. It never fails to lure lovely couples to dine because of its charm, focus on quality, and personal touch.

It's a bit nostalgic, reminiscing my initial post about this place: Lemuria's Mystique - a Romantic Restaurant in the Metro, and revisiting Lemuria after almost 8 years.
