Breads are also an integral part of snack time for my kids, and I'm always on the lookout for good breads for them. I cannot settle for those backdoor bakeshop/ sari sari store where they sell breads at 2 pesos each and tasted too sweet.
Good breads require ingredients that costs more and techniques that only experienced bread artisans have perfected.
Recently we visited this bakeshop in Banawe Street, Quezon City where they sell good quality breads.
Formosa Bakery sells what its name implies, Taiwanese- yeast leavened breads, quick breads and cakes.
We tried this BBQ Bread for 48 pesos. It consists of puff pastry dough separated by roasted green bell pepper on a stick, slathered with barbeque sauce and topped with seaweed flakes. Yum. Hubby likes it.
The roasted green pepper are surprisingly not overpowering and tasted sweet.
This heart shaped pink bread is called a Full Wheat Meal Bread and it costs 55 pesos. It is a combination of strawberry and vanila -yeast leavened bread with a cheesy interior. Not too expensive considering it being big enough to share. The combination of cheese and strawberry is ok. I like that its not sweet.
This one is named Piccachu, and its highly recommended by the shop girl I asked. ( Do not know why its named after a Pokemon) It costs 85 pesos each. Its sweeter than the strawberry full wheat meal bread but it tasted heavenly! Bigger than the two other breads I bought. It is yeast leavened with a sweet crust sprinkled with walnuts. The taste reminds me of coffee buns. I bet it will be great with coffee.
