Pan de Amerikana de Marikina

pda 1

We’ve heard so much about the 1950’s Pandesal Pan de Amerikana’s huge chess pieces that we decided to go to Marikina City one day to see it for ourselves.

Pan de Amerikana is located within SSS Village, a vast residential zone in Marikina that we’re not familiar with. Upon reaching Concepcion Church in Marikina where turned left towards SSS Village. From a Meralco branch, we turned right stayed on the road until we’ve finally saw a windmill and the entrance to Pan de Amerikana.

From the bakeshop’s entrance, we could see the bakers were busy taking out trays of freshly baked breads from a traditional pugon while eager customers line up for their orders. After making an order at counter, we went straight to the garden café.

The lushness of plants and the vines dangling from the trellis made the garden café look wild and rustic though obviously cared for. We choose a table nearest to the giant chessboard –the main attraction of Pan de Amerikana.

The almost life size chess pieces is reminiscent of the chess game in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. We had fun moving, lifting, dragging and sliding those big chess pieces on the giant chess board.
