Like most millennials at my age who are working and practically spending more hours at work than with their families, I sometimes miss traditional meals that we eat at home. I can’t even remember the last time that we ate hot pandesal with butter along with a hot cup of coffee!
Maybe this is the reason why places like Tim Hortons are upgrading their menu to something that suits Filipino preference and help those who are always on the go to take a piece of home – even through food. This Canadian quick service restaurant recently had a dash of #PinoyPride in their menu – The Philippines’ favorite breakfast staple, the sweet, soft and fluffy pandesal, in celebration of Independence Day last June 12.
Calling it Timdesal, the limited edition breakfast sandwich will be available in all Tim Hortons branches here in the Philippines until the end of July 2019 for only P75.
Every tasty serving contains Smokey Bacon with cheese and garlic aioli with chipotle sauce in panini-pressed pandesal.
Fun fact: Pandesal, or “bread of salt,” which was introduced in the 16th century, is relatively sweet, and is unofficially the Philippine national bread. Best paired with a hot cup of coffee!
“As our way of recognizing the significance of Independence Day, we at Tim Hortons wish to offer this breakfast favorite, reminiscent of its Filipino homey taste,” shares Stephanie Guerrero, Marketing Director for Tim Hortons Philippines.
