Something to remind mom of amazing family moments!

For Filipinos, pan de sal during breakfast is as ubiquitous as eating rice in every meal. The smell of freshly baked pan de sal in the morning is sure to bring back amazing family moments of sitting at the breakfast table and enjoying each other’s company as you bite into a warm and tasty piece of pan de sal.

And what better gift to give mom than bread from Pan de Manila, one of the Philippines’ most beloved bakeries!
