Meet the Asian immigrants running some of Philly best French bakeries

Han’s first business was a grocery store at 54th and Race, which he left to open Paris Baguette. The European influence, he says, comes from his training in South Korea and his European coworkers in the hotel kitchen where he worked.

    Meet the Asian immigrants behind some of Philly's favorite French bakeries
    Maybe you did a double take when you saw that new storefront in Chinatown: Paris Baguette. But if you went inside, you'd realize that the shop, with its cashiers clad in Breton stripes and gray berets, is quite at home next to the Chinese grocers and hot-pot spots.
