Panaderia Pantoja is a cozy little cove in our neighborhood. Its red and yellow orange colors are warm and welcoming, the sight of its spread of breads and biscuits always delightful. Let me introduce you to some of the sortidos (biscuits) I have come to enjoy with my family!
What would you like with these sortidos? Coffee or tea?
Biscuits are staples at our home. They’re quick eats and are great to serve to surprise guests! 😉 All you need is to put them on pretty plates and serve them with your guests’ choice of tea or coffee. Perfect!
Garlic sticks, Paboritas and Jacobina
Panaderia Pantoja Goodies
The Garlic Sticks of Panaderia Pantoja are pretty addicting. (Right, Mama? 😛 ) They’re crunchy, slightly buttery, and of course, garlicky! Garlic sticks are great for merienda, but they’re even more enjoyable when paired with pasta over lunch. I’ll make sure to have these garlic sticks handy when I make my one-pot pasta next time!
Take your pick.
Next up: Paboritas from Panaderia Pantoja. These are small, compact biscuits that are a little crunchy, a little flaky, a little sweet. They’re really good with coffee. Panaderia Pantoja started as local community bakeshop in Tanauan. I’m guessing these paboritas would taste awesome with barako coffee.
Paboritas. Could they be your favorite?
Another kind of biscuit from Panaderia Pantoja is the jacobina. We’ve long been fans of these rectangular biscuits. These light, crisp biscuits are also wonderful with coffee.
Jacobina biscuits just for you!
How big are these treats? Here’s my iPhone for scale!
All these biscuits are awesome with coffee or tea. You can store them in their own packaging and just tape or clip up when not needed, but sometimes this is what we’ve done. We mixed the Paboritas and Jacobinas in one container. Looks pretty too!
Now what about the Biscocho? Biscocho is a crunchy baked bread with butter and sugar. The biscochos from Panaderia Pantoja are quite buttery! My aunt super loves this. In our family, we don’t take biscocho with coffee or tea (though you can!). We prefer our biscocho with Royal Tru Orange. No other drink will do! This is how we eat the biscocho. We dunk it in the soda and eat it.
Biscocho with Royal Tru Orange. A childhood favorite.
Panaderia Pantoja carries classic favorites like yeast breads (rainbow bread, mongo bread, pan de coco, pandesal and so much more!), sweet dough breads (ensaymada, banana bread and lots more!), biscuits (like the ones you see in this blog post and more!), cake rolls (ube roll, mocha roll, brazo de mercedes, and more!) and specialty cakes (watch out for my post on their yema cake soon!). These yummy baked goodies are comfort food, Pinoy style.
