Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3
Pan de Amerikana in Marikina City is one of my favorite restaurants. They’ve been serving the best pandesal since 1950s at an affordable price. Their wheat pandesal is only Php 5.50 and it’s huge, like a half size of a saucer. They also make a wonderful wheat ensaymada for only Php 10. According to their Multiply page (link below): The pandesal of the 1950′s has only a shelf life of 3 days because there were no bread extenders and improvers during those times.
They also serve lunch and snack meals but I won’t be posting any food photos for this first part of Pan de Amerikana post. This place is so amazing it deserve to be featured in a separate post.
It was a gloomy September when we went here. The place isn’t that crowded and we found a place to park in front of Pan de Amerikana.
This is what will welcome you as soon as you entered Pan de Amerikana (photo taken in the sitting area). You can see the cashier counter where you can place your order for the lunch and snack meals. On the right of that is the bakery.
The sitting area where you can wait if the place is crowded, make use of the free wi-fi or look at their wonderful display. The left side of the sitting room, behind the sewing machine is the washing area. Straight ahead and to the right are the dining areas.
The photo below is the right side dining area. It has a mini-stage where seminars and music sessions are held. It feels like your dining al fresco minus the pollution. It’s a comfortable place to dine or hang out with friends.
This is the view from the other side of the dining area, photo taken from the back part of the restaurant. Notice the tables? You can borrow the restaurant’s chess set and play while your wait for your meal.
My daughter’s favorite place is the huge open space with large chess pieces. This is also where they usually held Tai chi, and art lessons.
