Heard about Panaderya Toyo’s life-changing bread and of course, I had to try it. Wanted to have breakfast there but apparently, it opens at 11AM. Huh? Shouldn’t they open at 5AM? I kid. This is not your typical panaderya (although I hope they’ll still open earlier and nearer to my office). After a one-and-a-half hour wait, we finally get seated inside. Breads are theatrically displayed, enclosed by glass and some awesome lighting. Here, the bread takes center stage (although the spreads are just as divine). My friends and I ended up ordering their Drink, Bread & Spread, and Tinapay & Palaman. Our Drink, Bread & Spread consisted of Tsokolate (bittersweet + thick), Pan Mayaman (sour) and Cream Cheese + Smoked Fish spread (subtle fish flavor + mentaiko for texture). We also got Barra (crusty but soft on the inside) and Torched Saikoro Steak, Crispy Onions, Soy & Mustard Paste (sweet, salty and sour). Talk about flavors!!! Ended up taking home some pandesal (humungous and chewy) and pan mayaman to take home. Not really a place to lounge and loiter around given its seating capacity - 14 or thereabouts. Best to go after the lunch crowd. #JackieEatsTheAlleyAtKarrivin#PanaderyaToyo#TheAlleyAtKarrivin#Pandesal#Bread
Having take-away breakfast when you are holidaying can be appealing to eyes too.
☀️Rise & Shine to our last day in 🇵🇭
Pandesal (local soft 🍞) & latte ☕️ in the comfort of apartment & pajamas.
🍽 happy bellies, happy eyes.
This pan de sal is the best!
Waterfront Insular Hotel bakes their bread daily, the pan de sal included, and are served fresh on the buffet table. Unfotunately, they don't sell it (yet 😀), but I was lucky enough to have been given a couple of boxes of these goodies!
Oh happy day! I baked pandesal again! It’s been quite some time since I’ve made these. Reminds me of my mom and how she wanted them fresh from the oven. Miss you Ma!
School will start in a couple of weeks and I am quite excited as it is my little girl's first time in big school! I have been planning on her lunch box meals and I thought of Pan de sal for her bread since it's her favorite.
Pan de sal is a Filipino bread roll that may be eaten as it is or may be complemented with cheese or jam. I tweaked the recipe a little bit and added milk for flavor. Lunch box meals should be exciting and interesting too! Along with their fruits and vegetables, a roll or slice of their favorite bread will surely be a bonus!
