I personally had this as a part of something I called a Montalban [1] breakfast when I was in the Philippines. Most of the people in the Philippines have to live a very simple life style. In this spirit a Montalban breakfast consisted of coffee and pandesal or hot milk and pandesal.asasas


Sorry to whoever wrote the above comment on this article. I just moved it here on the talk section. I'm sure you had a great time in the Philippines, but this is POV. Also, I am a Filipino and a "Montalban breakfast" is not really a common term among Filipinos. Thanks for appreciating the culture, though. Moonwalkerwiz 04:19, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

You're right. I'm American-born but with half Filipino blood. I lived in the Philippines for my last two years of high school, and I still spend a big part of every year there. Yet until today, I never even heard of a "Montalban Breakfast." It can't be because the term is restricted to just one economic class, because I've been to their finest hotels and restaurants, but I've also eaten in the more common places.J.J.

I also moved the contents of the article "Pan de sal" to this one, and suggested that the page be deleted. "Pan de sal" is a Spanish construction of the Filipino word "Pandesal." "Pandesal" is considered as one word here in the Philippines, especially by people who do not speak Spanish. In fact, Filipinos would even pronounce it sometimes as "Pandisal." I combined the contents of the two articles and removed unnecessary stuff, like suggestions of personal experiences with the bread. Moonwalkerwiz 04:39, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

It should be noted that Pandesal is a morning food. Baked first and offered in the earliest morning hours, at many Filipino bakeries is if all sold out each morning by 7AM or a little later. On our 'dead-end' street in a residential area of General Santos City, a street vendor walks it at 5AM yelling, 'Pan-de-SAL!!!' each morning. When we lived in Cubao we simply walked across the street at 6AM for the rolls. MikeLieberman 16:52, 31 June 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

OK, so, what's the necessary cleanup? Alphapeta (talk) 10:01, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Grammar/pronunciation for "Pandesal".[edit]

Since "Pandesal" is a Tagalog term, we need at least a pronunciation/grammar in the first sentences of the article for non-native speakers (I might be wrong though)
