Pandesal, Pan De sal

Am running this week's blogging marathon with Pick an Asian countries, obviously i opted for Philipines which is a SouthEastern Asian Country. After Srilanka, am taking you all to Philipines and this country's cuisine is quite unknown for me. Actually i want to explore this cuisine after trying this Pandesal. Though many of their ingredients arent that much easy to get if you are living far away from this Country still am planning to try some of their dishes with available ingredients. Most of their dishes are loaded with meats,seafoods, however some delightful dishes like Pandesal do exists in this cuisine. This bread is quite easy one to bake and definitely an incredible bread to enjoy at anytime of the day. We loved this bread very much as they are extremely soft and delicious.
