Philippines

oh how i love hot pandesal for breakfast. there's a small bakery near us and we always buy pandesal there (they only make pandesal) because you can really see that the place is clean and the bread has just been taken out of the oven. their pandesal is really of high quality because even if it's cold, it doesn't become hard plus their bread is quite big for P2.

I also love eating those freshly-baked bread in the morning and lather it with just enough butter or margarine. I could eat about 4 pcs of it! Good morning, iluvusabado!

i especially love it when you see that the heat coming from the newly baked bread is melting the margarine. oh it really tastes great.

Ouch! Where is that place so that I can buy also pandesal. Because I want to eat pandesal, every morning. If the place is faraway from here better to buy marby pandesal in savemore, which is the best pandesal I know...

there are three places here where we can buy it, and their pandesals are different from one another. one of them makes malunggay pandesal. what i like about them is at around 10 to 11am, all the unsold pandesal from the morning batch will be repacked in clear plastic with 6 pcs each, but you only pay P10 so you get one piece free. at night, it's the same. around 9 to 10pm, they will repack all the unsold pandesal from the afternoon batch.

i've never tried malunggay pandesal though i've heard it on the news a couple of time already. how does it taste?
• Philippines
15 Feb 13
same as regular pandesal actually but it is sprinkled with green bits of malunggay outside and inside.
• Philippines
15 Feb 13
does it taste good? i don't really like eating malunggay. i just wish it would not destroy the taste of pandesal.

Good for you because the bakery is just near you sabado, so it's still hot when you buy and eat them. Though, for us even if it's not that hot anymore, it's still delicious and well liked by us because it's soft and tasty. In fact, my father-in-law won't put any sandwich filler on it, but would simply dip it in his coffee and eat it. Me, i can eat 4 or 5 of it, with coffee as a pair.

yes, it's freshly taken from the oven that the paper bag where the paper bag where they place the pandesal usually gets torn easily hat i ask for a plastic bag as well.

I envy you for having it "hot' still. T Though, i also experienced eating "hot' pandesal before when we still have a "hot pandesal" in our owned store in our hometown. But it was sold when it proved to be tedious and not so profitable. "hot pandesal" is indeed delicious.

so sad that you store closed. maybe if i lived near your store, i'd be your number 1 customer.

Thats the most popular and well-known bread in the Philippines. This bread really represents PINOY, simple but tasty. I love pandesal also.
• Philippines
14 Feb 13
yes, it's very pinoy. it's like a trademark for pinoy bread making.

I just checked online a recipe of your pandesal (pan de sal in Spanish, my native language) and it seems to be a sweet bun, very similar to the ones we eat here. I like my bred (when it is straight from the oven) with a butter that melts inside. Another favorites are avocados and cheese.

well we were colonized by the spaniards once so maybe we were influenced by that. i also love to use butter as the spread but my nephews like peanut better.

I think most probably pandesal is a form of chappathi. I have not eaten pandesai, but would like to know more about it and I think most probably they must be tasting very good.
• Philippines
10 Apr 13
i've searched online about chappathi. are you referring to the flattened indian bread? pandesal is not flat like that one. pandesal looks like this one: http://goo.gl/BKnRW

hot pandesal is always good in the morning,because it is freshly bake in the bakery,i still remember when i was a kid because my parents always asked us to go buy a pandesal and they always said to us that we always tell the hot one or the newly bake one.

it is quite good with delightful flavors and the cold and crispness makes it even more better
• Philippines
24 Feb 13

14 Feb 13

• Philippines
15 Feb 13

We Filipinos love pandesal in the morning, i actually am eating it now, though it was from this morning, i like to pair it with my coffee. We grew up eating hot pandesal and i this tradition of ours will stay and not be replaced by white bread/sliced bread. I use to buy hot pandesal early in the morning and it is always inside a brown paper bag...memories, memories.
• Philippines
15 Feb 13
yes, it's often with brown paper bag. but whenever i buy pandesal in the said store, most of the time the paper bag gets torn because it's too hot. i often ask for plastic.

good day iluvusabado, hot pandesal is really an ideal bread for breakfast plus if you will combine some butter or spread, then it would be perfectly right. and it would be more perfect if you have a cup of coffee, isn't it.
• Philippines
14 Feb 13
i pair it with hot chocolate. what a perfect combination.

Now it made me realized that it's been a month when the time i ate hot pandesal. I think i should text my husband to buy pandesal in Pan de manila at the back of his office. I love to eat hot pandesal with scramble eggs and hot chocolate.
• Philippines
14 Feb 13
pandesal with scrambled eggs is also great. if we don't have peanut butter or margarine, we use eggs.

That's our choice for breakfast too almost everyday. We're lucky to have 2 bakeries within our place and both are just a few houses away from us. Hot pandesal is very convenient to take for breakfast, it easily matches with just a plain butter or any filling you want to and with a cup of hot beverage you can start your day with zest.
• Philippines

eating pandesal is really a great way to start your day. it has this relaxing soothing feeling that makes you look forward to a good day.

yes, me too i like to eat hot pan de sal for breakfast, especially if it is a quality and delicious pan de sal and you drink coffee with it. it's really good :)
• Philippines
14 Feb 13
i could just imagine the smell of coffee mixed with the taste of pandesal. though i prefer chocolate over coffee.

hello iluvusabado! we eat pan de sal for breakfast. we usually buy our one week supply of pan de sal from a bakery of a well known hotel here in Cebu City. believe it or not their pan de sal cost only .50 centavos per piece and remarkably the taste is excellent. we buy 100.00 pesos worth of pan de sal to last us for up to one week. just like your pan de sal it does not change flavor even if refrigerated.

really? well that's great to hear that the quality of the bread is not sacrificed with the low price.
