Along the busy and crowded streets of Avenida exists a bakeshop that has been catering to hundreds of Filipino for more than three decades. This is evident with the exterior of the bakeshop as if it has seen better days.
But, as the saying goes "don't judge the book by its cover", the Bakers' Fair Bakesop still produces the best of quality breads and pastries. Disregard the shabby interiors, concentrate on the overwhelming number pastries on display.
I've known Bakers' Fair Bakeshop for its fresh and hot diced mongo hopia, which was P1.50 each back then. But, just like every other commodity, the price rose to P2.50 today. But even though, the taste and quality is still the same. Batches of diced hopia are baked fresh everyday so you'd definitely get to eat a hot hopia anytime of the day...well, except early morning where they still sell the ones not sold from the previous day.
But aside from diced hopia, the bakeshop's star, they also sell bread like pandesal and american loaf, cakes, cake slices and mamon.
Five pieces of these small yet soft and mamon is only P25.00, which is great for baon of the kids.
So next time you'd drop by this busy and crowded part of Manila, don't look at the negative side but look for Bakers' Fair instead. It would definitely bring a smile to your lips and tummy!
