We went there on a weekend and bought Bibingka and turned out it was malagkit na minatamisan, at may konting amag na (see picture) Yung puto naman na multicolored ~$5.00, walang mga expiration dates may amoy na rin. Siempre binalot, moisture remained there we dont know since when. The breads were not unique that we should take time to travel... More

I couldn't return it or call them right away cause it was a Sunday. I bought 8 pieces and it all went to... More

The food here is clean and delicious. I love their halo-halo. They make the best in the area. Ingredients are not too sweet and of a better quality than the other Fil-Am places. There is a proper balance of ice, milk, ice cream to the rest of the stuff in it.

So worth the almost 3-hour drive. Their pan de sal is so good, you have to wait in line to get a bag. For $2 of the 8-piece freshly baked goodness, it can't be beat! They have other pinoy pastries they make: ube/ monggo bread, meringue cookies, espasol, hopia, sapin2, polvoron, Biko, cakes, etc. They also serve lunch and dinner.... More

Why do philippine restaurants have endemic with flies? This place is no exception. Very very oily food. The place needs hygiene

This is the place where we get our supplies of fresh baked Pandesal and the ever delicious mocha cake. The people are friendly and they will help you with your choices. There is a place to eat Filipino food besides the bakery.A must go everytime you visit Jersey City.

We ate at the Philippine Bread House last Saturday and found a big dead roach soaking in our cup of menudo. My husband was about to eat it when he noticed it on his fork. We told the employees but the pot of menudo remained on the counter to be served to other customers. When we asked for our money... More
