Brunch at Pan De Amerikana



I’ve been to Pan De Amerikana twice this month already. Last week, I took my team there for breakfast, and just this morning, Alfred and I had brunch at the restaurant famous for its Pandesal, and upside-down fun theme.

We had a full brunch, and it was very sulit! They serve Pinoy everyday food. Snacks, breakfast, lunch/dinner, even dessert. Each dish is priced very reasonably so we actually bought a dish each, plus a plate of sisig to share. I also ordered pumpkin soup, and we both had dessert of ginataang bilo-bilo. The melon shake was also very refreshing, but it comes in a small glass. To take home, we got their big pandesal and ensaymada. All the food we got only cost us 622 pesos.

The food wasn’t exceptional, but it was good enough. And for the price, it’s really no wonder people keep coming back.

The décor was really something. Outside, the place looks like an upside down house. Inside, you’ll see the baby grand piano, dining and sala sets up hanging above your head. I bet everyone who comes for the first time cracks a worried joke about the entire thing falling straight at you. But it looked like they were fastened securely by bolts. It’s like you need special tools, or delrin levers, to take them down. We were definitely safe sitting right under them Smile

It’s a one-floor affair with a high ceiling so it was quite cool inside even with just a few industrial-sized fans. The place looks really good, it made us think about what we would love to replicate in our future home.

Before leaving I used the comfort room and was delighted at the Gramps and Granny figures they used to mark His and Hers CR (see Granny on the collage above). Behind the beautiful colored glass door, you’ll find a clean functioning CR with an interesting wall! They put old plates or dish covers as a design element. Fun and whimsical. Smile

Anyhoo. I just thought I’d share a restaurant post, and not have a bunch of food photos to go along with it for a change. Winking smile

What did you have for breakfast/brunch today?

Hi Vera, I had boneless dilis that was really crunchy with spicy vinegar and boiled rice for breakfast.

My former teammates frequent this place. Unfortunately I always fail to go with them coz our EOS then was from 12-ish midnight to 1am. I’ll definitely bring my parents here for them to experience a unique interior :)

Just wondering, which BPO office do you work for?

For breakfast today, I had fried tamban with rice, a cup of boiled cauliflower, few slices of kiwi fruit and coffee of course. Yum!

The upside down concept is cool but yup, it makes one feel like those will fall off anytime lol! Kind of strange but cool!

That place looks interesting. I wonder why they chose upside down as their theme. Doesn’t it make you a wee bit dizzy dining there? Hehe!

one thing i miss living in LB is good bread :( may branch din ang pan de amerikana sa marikina, that’s where we had uri’s birthday party a couple of years back. super mura ng food, and the place was nice and kid-friendly.

I do believe all the ideas you’ve introduced on your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for beginners. May just you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

I have never seen Pan De Amerikana restuarant but now I want to see it because it is looking very decent and good place to have breakfast or lunch. I do not where it is but I want to know about it’s location. I used to have dinners outside on weekends. So,I am searching for a restaurant which looks like Pan De Amerikana. Enjoy yourself at this cool place.
