Pandesal (or Filipino bread roll) is the quintessential bread in the Philippines. It is typically bought from the bakery fresh and piping hot from the oven, and often eaten in the morning. Common as a breakfast fare, it isn’t a mortal sin to eat it any time of the day, which is why many bakeries sell it the whole day. Pandesal doesn’t have any filling off the bat, which is a good thing, because it works as a blank canvas for anything sweet or savory— much like rice. Maybe, that’s why we love it too.
When it comes to this classic pastry, one name that you can rely on is Ninyo’s Hot Pandesal.
Ninyo’s sells and serves pandesal fresh off the oven. I like mine with a salty slice of cheese. On days that I’m just basic, a smear of butter is totally fine. But when I’m feeling whimsical, peanut butter and jelly do the trick.
Pandesal (PHP 2 each)
Ninyo’s has two bakeries in Quezon City. The first branch was opened about two years ago while the second branch was launched last year.
Known as a go-to bakery that offers freshly baked hot pandesal daily in the neighborhood, they also make loaves of bread. In a way, this can also be a blank canvas for your spreads— a tad fancier though and with fewer crumbs. So, if you want to ditch the classic pandesal over the swankier loaf bread, do so and slather your jam or jelly away.
Loaf of bread (PHP 50 per loaf )
Ninyo’s also produces foodservice bread choices such as burger buns and hotdog buns that are used by some restaurants.
However, their selection of foodservice bread is made to order. So, you need to order in advance if you want to buy these buns. This is done to ensure that they are always freshly baked on the day of delivery.

Burger buns (PHP 39 for pack of 6s and PHP 58.50 for pack of 9s)
Hotdog buns (PHP 35 for pack of 5s)
Although they are popular for their low-priced pandesal, Ninyo’s also offers bake-to-order specialty bread like these ube rolls.
Ube Rolls (PHP 120 pesos per box of 6s)
Ninyo’s Hot Pandesal bakeries are open from 5 AM to 7 PM if you want to get some of their hot pandesal and more.
You can also have pandesal delivered at home. Payments can be made through GCash. Delivery in Metro Manila can be done via Lalamove and Mr. Speedy.
