Pan de Sal is the quintessential Filipino bread. Since the 16th century, this type of bread has been a breakfast favorite of most Filipinos across the nation. Described to have a hint of sweetness and a slightly crunchy exterior but soft, light and airy on the inside, the Pan de Sal easily compliments various food.
Typically, it is served with coffee or hot chocolate; it can also be a stand-alone. For Filipinos, the Pan de Sal celebrates the start of a new day. It is the fuel that gives energy to the mind and body in order to face what is yet to come.
