Pandesal: The Pinoy Bread of all Time
My breakfast wouldn’t complete without this classic Filipino bread, The Pandesal. According to WikiPilipinas, Pandesal is literally “Salt Bread” in Spanish but it actually originated from Portuguese, It is a bread made of flour, eggs, lard, yeast, sugar, and salt. It has a soft, powdery texture and can be prepared in a number of ways by using numerous sandwich spreads. In the Philippines, most bake shops and bakeries sell Pandesal. Sometimes, this is sold in rolling stores (usually a honking bicycle with a big box on the back). When purchasing from a neighborhood bakery, be sure to be there before 8 in the morning because the supply runs out after that time. It can also be matched by dipping it in coffee or put some different varieties of “palaman” or filling inside of it. This bread is affordable by everyone. It usually costs One Peso or equivalent to Two Cents in US Dollars. That’s why it is most known as the Pinoy Bread of all Time.
