Pan De Sal


Contrary to the literal meaning “salt bread”, Pandesal is slightly sweet rather than salty. It is soft and has a crunchy crust and usually dipped in hot coffee.

Pan De Sal is a very famous and the most common bread in Philippines which was said to be have originated in Portugal. It is literally translated as “salt bread”, though every bite is slightly sweet. Pan De Sal (commonly written as Pandesal) is also called “poor man’s bread” due to its very cheap price and availability in most of the bakeries in the Philippines.

Pandesal is staple in our breakfast and usually dipped in hot coffee rather than paired with jam or butter. I prefer mine dipped in hot coffee or Milo. I also love my Pandesal toasted with margarine and sugar. I must confess that my favorite is when my Pandesal is paired with sunny side up eggs. 😀
