Created in the Philippines in the 16th century, pandesal meaning Salt Bread has become a part of the traditional Filipino breakfast. Filipinos usually eat it in the mornings while it is oven-fresh and warm.
While pandesal can be eaten on its own, many Filipinos fill it with cheese, coconut jam, peanut butter, butter, fried eggs, sardines, or cooked meat. A cup of hot coffee or chocolate drink goes well with it.
