While they were in pediatric clinic, waiting for baby’s turn to undergo monthly check-up, I took about 500 meters walk to the newly opened malunggay pandesal bakery. My real purpose was to buy some malunggay bread so I was willing to wait even if there were lots of people in waiting line.
It seems this establishment is baking one and only product, the malunggay pandesal. Several racks with numerous trays are arranged around the room but all of them only contain the specific bread. I am hoping they could develop other healthy breads like guyabano monay, mangosteen biscuits, pineapple tart, mango loafs and the likes.
I got the bread after few minutes of waiting. Each bread cost two pesos. I ordered ten pieces so the damaged I incurred was 20 pesos. Not bad.
Each malunggay pandesal looks expensive. About two times smaller than what morning pandesal vendors are selling. It taste delicious however. The desirable flavor compensates for its smaller size. My wife agrees. Perhaps other customers feel the same way. People keeps on coming even if the bakery offers the one and only bread line.
The bread is delectable but its taste is not suggestive of maluggay. I tried sensing the plant flavor but there was none. There are several green dots that can be seen on surface and inner portion. Its none other than malunggay leaves I guess.
Malunggay pandesal sounds like a bread made of malunggay leaves as main ingredients. Maybe the more correct term is “malunggay flavored pandesal“.
I took clearer pictures at home.
