My wife and I went to the French Baker for lunch. We usually eat there when we visit SM Marikina as we live in Antipolo and I also buy the English Bread when we are there as I like this very much. The local Gardenia bread is too sweet for me and as I am an Englishman I like the bread as it has a more rustic taste and more salt.
We sat down and went to order.
I ordered the German Sausage with Potato Salad and we were informed by the server that it was not available.
So then I ordered the Steak Sandwich and again we were informed by the server that it was not available.
I asked about the Fish and Chips and again we were informed by the server that it was not available.
So I asked what food did they have? And I eventually ordered the Blue Cheese Burger. I was told that this was not available but then I was informed that it was.
My wife ordered the Soup on a Bread Bowl and again we were informed by the server that it was not available.
So my wife settled for the Salad Starter.
After I had paid for the order we had not received any water so I asked another server for this and she gave us a carafe of water.
My wife’s Salad Starter arrived first and then after some 10 minutes my Blue Cheese Burger and this was accompanied by a few straggly BBQ chips that looked like the bottom of the bag.
We finished our meal and as we were leaving we noticed two tables that had the Soup on a Bread Bowl so seemingly it was available after all.
Not one of our better visits to this establishment and I have written to the French Baker but they have chosen not to respond. Pity that.....
Also, the baking staff were very noisy, shouting and playing about and this does not look good in front of the patrons.
