Happy World Bread Day Today! Let’s Celebrate With Pandelitos 🤗

Happy World Bread Day today! In case you didn’t know, October 16 is World Bread Day. Here in the Philippines, it’s National Pandesal Day. We’re very happy to have Pandelitos to celebrate this special day.

Pandesal is a staple in Filipino homes. It’s usually served for breakfast but it’s not necessarily just for breakfast. You can always reheat and have it for merienda. If you run out of pandesal, you can always walk to your ” suking paninderia” to buy more. If you make it right on time, you will be able to catch the sweet smell of pandesal baking in the oven. 😋😋😋

If other countries have roti, naan bread, and baguette; we have our very own pandesal. So, it just makes a lot of sense to pay homage to our very own pandesal. What better way to celebrate but with Pandelitos?

Get To Know Pandelitos

Pandelitos is a bakery in Pasig. This is not just your ordinary bakery where you can get ordinary pandesal. Pandelitos is much more than that.

According to one of the owners, Patrick Frias:

“Pandelitos are soft, hand-rolled pandesal, plant-based and freshly baked every day. It’s delicious in its simplicity, using only the best ingredients and having no fad flavorings or fillings. It is prepared the traditional way–without machines nor short cuts. Every step is lovingly handmade.”

Pandelitios are very versatile. You can eat them plain but you can also reinvent them. The fact is, they fit any kind of meal.

Care for some canapés? The photo shows some Pandelitos topped with tomatoes, avocado, and quail eggs. Didn’t think you could use some pandesal for canapés, did you? The size of the Pandelitos is perfect for canapés. 👍
How about some Spam and Cheese Pandelitos?

The Story Of Pandelitos

The story of Pandelitos is quite interesting and inspiring. Patrick shares how they came about setting up a unique brand.

“Pandelitos is my “collateral beauty”, that beautiful something that comes out from a seemingly difficult situation. It all started from a need—A need to have another source of income to provide for my mom’s healthcare in the US. As it was being conceptualized, the need evolved into a desire to uplift our national bread, the pandesal.”

He adds:

“Owned by four artists from different fields, we couldn’t get ourselves to launch the business unless it was excellent in every form. We wanted to brand it, to package it, to perfect it into something that we can all be proud of. So, Pandelitos was born.”

The Pandelitos team is composed of Neil, Myla, Joey, and Patrick (from left to right).

Sunday Is A Special Day For Pandelitos

Unlike your suking paninderia, Pandelitos is closed on Sundays. There’s a good reason why it’s closed.

According to Patrick:

“We, at Pandelitos, honor and respect Sundays as the Lord’s Day, Sabbath day or a day of rest and worship. All our stores our closed and our staff rest from work.”

Patrick further adds:

“With the pandemic adversely affecting the whole world, we were moved by so much devastation. Inspired by the Lord’s miracle of feeding the five thousand with 5 loaves and 2 fish, Sundays have evolved into our day of outreach. We started seeking out our less fortunate kababayans who are out in the strrets and shared with them our simple bread. By God’s grace, support from friends, family, customers and other NGOs started to overflow. With their generous partnership, we have been able to share Pandelitos with thousands of individuals in need.”

Pandelitos is definitely not your ordinary paninderia. It not only provides freshly baked pandesal to their loyal customers but to less fortunate folks on the streets as well.
