PAUL Boulangerie and Patisserie has been baking bread and pastries in France since 1889. Finally, after 124 years, they have opened a store in Manila this December 2013. Their bread is baked traditionally, hand-crafted using the best natural ingredients that are freshly flown in all the way from France.
The local franchise is owned by Ben Chan of the Bench empire. Paul Boulangerie’s flagship store in SM Aura integrates the bakery, patisserie, restaurant,
and tea salon in one. Check out Paul when you are in SM Aura.
RAMEN NAGI BUTAO
RAMEN NAGI offers a gourmet version of ramen that is hailed as the best in Tokyo. It has been awarded the top spot in the National Ramen of the Year Competitions for the last two years (2011 and 2012). In Hongkong, the Ramen Nagi franchise is known as BUTAO, after its popular signature ramen, which Filipinos line up hours for just to get a taste. 🙂
Finally, Ramen Nagi has opened in Manila at the 5th Floor of SM Aura Premier. The Manila franchise is owned by Plains & Prints couple founders Roxanne and Erickson Farillas, together with Michael James Chua, Carissa Coscolluela, Enti Coscolluela, and Avi Siy-Chua.
As the Filipino foodie’s taste for ramen matures, one would prefer more rich and bolder flavors vs. the lighter variety. And once you taste the richer gourmet version of Ramen Nagi, there’s no going back to light and lesser quality ramen. You’ve got to check out why foodies are raving about Ramen Nagi Butao.
