My sweet friends from Naga brought me these oven bricked (or “pugon”) pandesal today – hand-carried from Naga City which is 7-8 hours away from Manila (by land).
I’ve tasted lots of pugon pandesal here in Manila but the one from Naga is more delectable. It’s also a bit salty, which is how I like my pandesal. After all, it’s call “salt bread” in English.
I like my pandesal “raw” and prefer to have it without any filling whatsoever. And as most Pinoys are wont to do, I eat it with a hot black coffee on the side, sometimes dipping the bread into the coffee before eating it. Yummy!
Such simple pleasure can also be the most satisfying =)
