To add some variety to your everyday meals or even just for merienda, Filipinos often turn to bread. We love them nearly as much as we love rice. But due to the quarantine, bread is quite hard to come by. If you've been to a supermarket lately, not only do the lines take almost forever, but also some essentials may not be available depending on what time you arrive or get inside the store to shop.
If you need bread, it's best to check stand-alone stores. Yes, they're open for baking your favorite carb goodies. They're still producing freshly baked bread for those who are craving for it.
