As I go through my biking route, one of the places I look for are neighborhood bakeries. These are very convenient bike stops as you can get your food without leaving your bike. Going inside a 7-11 means parking and (locking) your bike outside, a bit of a hassle. In the case of these bakeries, since these are by the side of the streets, you can just leave your bike to one side, without entirely leaving it unguarded.
Of course one other reason is that you can buy bread by the piece. And there is a lot of variety, from pan de sal to Spanish bread. There’s also that bread with a red or green coloring, I don’t really know how it’s called. My next project would probably be to document the names of these types of breads. 🙂 I mean there are items like pianono and putok, etc. For the meantime at least, I know the name of my favorite. It’s called Kababayan. I can probably eat half-a-dozen of these anytime.
