Pan de Amerikana, Marikina City

WHERE: Pan de Amerikana, Marikina City

DATE OF TRAVEL: August 28, 2010

1. Even if you're not addicted to chess, this is such a cool idea! A cafe and chess place rolled into one! They have large chess pieces as well as small ones that you can admire and play with!

2. Their pandesal (bread of salt) is good!

The owner of Pan de Amerikana is Dionisio Salvador Jr. and his yummy pandesals were taken after his father's recipe! His father was a baker in the 1950's and the size of the pandesals now are huge because that was supposedly the size of the pandesals back then! Obviously owner by a chess lover, the cafe is filled with chess tables and chess pieces may be borrowed from the counter. A collection of the different kinds of chess boards are on display, too! Moreover, Pan de Amerikana is also famouo for its huge chess pieces that both children and adults love playing with. It is also a cafe that is built by someone with love for the arts. Things like broken plates and glasses serve as part of the floor's decoration, the order numbers are put on colorful fans, children's artworks are on display, Mr. Salvador's son's photography works are on display and other arts and cultural stuff such as small trinkets, souvenirs, collections and pictures of the "old" Philippines may be seen all over the restaurant. Free Taichi and Art Lessons are held here as well as photography meetings and sessions. Events like baptism and weddings may be held here, too.
