Pan de Sal has already come a long way. From being just a poor man’s bread into becoming the favorite breakfast of most Filipinos. Pan de Sal is bread brought here by the Spaniards during their regime. It literally means “bread made of salt”. It’s distinct “almost bland” taste makes it a perfect partner for any filling or spread, but most of all it is best dipped in a cup of hot coffee.
Every morning, I always look forward eating Pan de Sal, its fluffiness makes you crave for more. That is why it is traditionally served for breakfast since it can be spread and filled with butter, cheese, scrambled eggs or, sausages, bacon, Spanish sardines, jams, while of course, taking a sip of coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
Pan de Sal can be bought in any bakeshop here in the Philippines, and aside from it being yummy, anyone can buy it for only 2pesos to 5pesos. With that, your breakfast is already solved!
