I've always been the girl who'd clamor over sweets over anything. Usually, it'd be the most tiresome thing in the world, but definitely rewarding. I remember that first chocolate I had. It was a CRUNCH bar, and from then on, I knew my life would never be the same again. Of course, my teeth are giving a jolly "HURRAH" YEY, CAVITIES!
So since coming to Manila, and knowing that there are tons of shops to find, especially dessert shops, I knew I had to be first in line. But with the messy schedules and all the sh*t that's been happening to me lately, I decided that going food hopping would be a bit grueling and tedious. So, I put that on hold for now.
But I'd like to do a food find tour nonetheless. I have discovered this bakery on TV when the lifestyle channel, ETC, featured it on their show EtceteraOnETC. Guys, I introduce you to CHEZ KARINE BAKERY.

Now I know you'd say, I'm not a relevant source, and blah blah blah. But I did say it was a find, rather than a review of each plate of whatever it is they have at the bakery or restaurant, so I think that my post is legit nonetheless. I will be posting photos of going to CHEZ KARINE for real once my sister and I go food hopping soon. For now, let me savor the fast-approaching reality.
This post will also feature photos from real foodies and their reviews. Photos will be credited to the real owners. So, there. Saved from Copyright!
Sorry for the delay. Why don't I get started.
So, CHEZ KARINE is french for "At Karen's Place" and it's owned by Chef Karen Yang, a pastry chef who studied at Le Corden Bleu in France to pursue a degree in making desserts and all the jazz and has worked with top pastry chefs including those of Pierre Hermé, owner of a dessert boutique at Rue Bonaparte. She settled to come here to Manila to open up CHEZ KARINE.
