|Beef steak: pandesal sandwich stuffing|
I am yet to visit in person this Manhattan bake shop and eatery located at 21st Street and Second Avenue. You see, it was established after I've moved back to the Philippines. I had discovered it online and was simply enamored by the photos of their pandesal stuffed with typical Pinoy viands and various mouth-watering baked goods.
However, I do intend to make it my first stop once I go back to New York. In fact, getting a pad somewhere in Union Square would be ideal so I could be near this Filipino bake shop. How delightful that would be.
From what I understand, besides chicken adobo, they offer myriad sumptuous stuffing for their pandesal, such as pate, corned beef, beef steak, white fish salad, and Spanish ham to name a few.
And based on the photo of their chiller filled with assorted Belgian, French and Filipino cakes, pies and various sweet treats, Pan De Sal is a full-pledge high quality bake shop. Wouldn't it be something to spend an afternoon tasting each one while sipping a steaming mug of their LavAzza coffee or iced tea?
Pan De Sal also offers buffets for lunch ($12) and dinner ($15).
