The first bakery shop of Panaderia Pantoja in Tanuan City.
On my arrival in Tanauan City, I was brought to the Panaderia Pantoja Bakery. I learned that Panaderia Pantoja Bakery started in 1950 by the couple named Aurelio and Celinda Pantoja. It's when they inherited a house in Tanauan City, Batangas and found a Pugon (brick oven) in the backyard which inspired Aurelio to start a bakery business. Now after 6 decades, Panaderia Pantoja Bakery is one of the province’s largest bakeries with franchisees and branches in different towns in Batangas, Laguna and Manila.
Panaderia Pantoja’s products are Yeast Breads (Pandesal, Asado Siopao, Hamburger/Hotdog Buns, Breads, etc.), Sweet Dough Breads (Cheese Rolls, Ensaymada, Malolos, Pan de Leche, Pandesiosa, Brownies, Banana cake, etc.), Biscuits (Banana chips, Butter cookies, Garlic sticks, Chicaron, etc.), Cake Rolls (Choco roll, Mango, roll, Mocha roll, Ube roll, Brazo de Mercedes), and specialty Cakes.
The board sign:
The Pandesals (Filipino bread roll) are freshly baked from the Pugon (brick oven) every morning 4. 30 am to 7.30 am
Malolos Special Big - Peso 123
Mini Ensaymada - Peso 16
On the top is butter, sugar and grated cheese. Inside the bread is a stick of cheese.
And guess what? My surprise birthday cake was from the Pantoja Bakery. It's very simple but totally delectable! The cake was so soft, light, fluffy and I really like the butter cream on it. I usually avoid eating butter cream but the butter cream on this cake was so good! Seriously, I hope that I will have my birthday cake from Pantoja Bakery again next year :)
