Pandesal (spelled pandisal in native Tagalog orthography) is a type of Filipino bread that’s slightly sweet and baked as small, oval loaves.
The word comes from the Spanish noun phrase pan de sal.
Pandesal is the most popular bread in the Philippines. Vendors sell them warm in the early morning for breakfast. People usually buy a dozen or so in a thin brown paper bag.
Filipinos like dipping pandesal in coffee or hot chocolate. Even when the bread is already cold, pandesal is still a favorite snack.
Possible fillings for pandesal: margarine, butter, peanut butter, condensed milk, cold cuts, cheese, corned beef, sardines, tomato sauce, fruit jelly, jam…
Malunggay Pandesal is a recently “invented” variant using the very nutritious dark-green leaves of the moringa plant.
