      Pandesal is one of the famous breakfast for the Filipino people. I usually have my breakfast with salt bread with hot chocolate or cocoa.
      I like pandesal for my breakfast because it is very easy to eat. Pandesal is best known to eat when it is very hot or newly baked. When it is newly baked, it is crunchy and very soft to eat. The smell of the bread is very good too. So you wonder how Pandesal or Salt Bread became known for us Filipino people. Here is the brief explanation:

      Pandesal or Pan de sal (salt bread) was first introduced in the Philippines in 16th century by the Spanish, since then it has become one of the favourite bread of the Filipinos. It’s a famous “agahan” or breakfast and always lovely when served hot. It brings back childhood memories when people selling it early morning shouting “pandesaaal init pa” which means Pandesal… still hot! Never mind the cuckoos of the chicken or alarm clocks, that what wakes me up every morning. They usually put it in a box wrapped with layers upon layers of cloth to keep the pandesal nice and warm, but of course you can easily buy it on any bakery shops anywhere in the Philippines. Some Filipinos dip their pandesal in with their warm coffee or cocoa drink too, but you can also have it for “merienda” or snack. I normally put cheese in it and it’s good to go. For Filipinos abroad, satisfying their craving for pandesal is by doing it yourself and baking it at home. (From: Filipino Food Online)

      Pandesal because sal is salt. Pan de salt. I miss it. There is no pandesal here in Chile but they have many pan with only salt in taste but the texture of the dough is different. I miss our very own pandesal in the Philippines.
