Pan De Amerikana Bakery and Restaurant is one of the target restaurants for foodies like me. Quirky places are the best. Every time you come to visit, it feels like there’s always something new to see and experience. This place has a truly incredible, one-of-a-kind setting where you can find and enjoy pan de sal, ensaymada and other breakfast items all day. If you are a sucker for great bread or one who’s fond of incorporating it into meals any chance you get, this fine restaurant in Marikina must be in for your liking.
When you enter, it’s just as adorable inside as it is outside. The décors are effortlessly classy, bringing a sense of nostalgia without the tackiness. I was especially fascinated by the giant chessboard with 3.5-feet high plastic chess pieces imported all the way from New York City, life-sized wind-driven Netherland windmill, rope bridge (on the second floor, sorry it’s not in the pictures), koi pond, traviesa benches, calesa, Italian colonnade European ruins, frames on a wall and the indoor tropical rainforest plants that serve a purpose—to give a nice feel-good factor as they lift your spirits while blending well in the background. The layout and design is absolutely gorgeous. No doubt, Pan De Amerikana is built as a charming place. The luxury of is interior is breath-taking as it almost looked like Wonderland. There’s a lot of quirky stuff that should pique your interest, so keep your eyes open and don’t forget to bring a camera.
We sat down to a late lunch at around 2 pm, so we were starving and in a hurry by then. The food is lutong-bahay and inexpensive, with most of the dishes below Php100. Drinks are below Php50.
Here’s what we ordered…
Everlasting (Half Llanera)- Php90.00
Red Iced Tea- Php20.00
Mango Shake- Php45.00
