Kamuning Bakery Has Rich 'Tinapay' History since 1930's

Not really new thing, by this time there are already a lot of write-ups and things you can know about this historic bakery. I was able to watch this bakery being featured in television in which I can't remember anymore but Im pretty sure it was more than once..definitely more than once. Finally I was fortunate to be able to visit this place and check on what I can see and of course can taste. 

Looks like a normal neighborhood bakery but interestingly people keeps on coming all over from different places. Well, don't be fooled. For after knowing what this bakery was and still is will make you proud to set foot to it - there are so many like these kinds of bakery anymore. Old School kind of thing, somehow when I tried their Pandesal my childhood flashed back in my head, scenes of what our breakfast table had everyday and I was lucky to have similar bakery near our house on the other part of Quezon City. 

Old school style - I admire the new owner a newspaper lifestyle/business columnist Wilson Lee Flores for retaining the original flavor and process of bread making and this bakery was able to have loyal clientele over decades of operation 43 Judge Jimenez St., Brgy. Kamuning and you will appreciate it even more because the prices of the breads that they are making matches the prices of the other bakeries even if the production time for Kamuning Bakery's bread is longer and requires more effort.

Ambiance for me is pretty okay, you can have your friends chill out just like a local coffee shop but the coffee will be just like what probably also have at home but the sweetener will be a condense milk. And when you tour around you can see some of the pictures of the famous people that have been there, and I'm not only talking about celebrities but people in history as well. President Manuel L. Quezon use to buy bread here all the time, same as the late President Cory Aquino. 

You may recognize some of the pictures that I took from the wall inside the air-conditioned room that they have, although those are not all the famous people who visited and liked the bakery back then(there were no selfies back when other celebs and politicians visited the place a few decades ago), and more familiar names are coming in and you can see it on there facebook wall as well.

Pan de Suelo, a favorite of President Cory. “This kind of bread requires a special skill to bake,” “It is cooked on the oven’s floor and the heat is circulated equally to ensure it is cooked perfectly.” Their bread is baked in a wood-fired oven, which gives the products a distinct flavor.

If you would like to visit you can go to 43 Judge Jimenez Street corner K-1st Street, Kamuning, Quezon City. Tels: 9292216, 7945045, 09175202756, 09228321888, 09178481818
