Bread + ice cream = love

Now we’ve all heard of ice cream sandwiches. Maybe the ice cream is inbetween two cookies or maybe thin layers of cake. But have you ever tried it with just bread?

My parents introduced to me the idea of eating ice cream (typically something Filipino flavoured like Ube or mango) and place it between pandesal (which is a Filipino bread roll) At first, this completely boggled mind because pandesal was used to make savoury sandwiches, often filled with cheese or meats. How could the two possibly combine? I was a good sport and willing to try anything once, tried it under my parents suggestion and instantly fell in love. While pandesal is not necessarily salty, it’s that savoury/salty combined with the sweet element that is just divine. If you toast the pandesal, you get the added interesting contrast of warm vs. cold. It makes for a great treat in the summers, very filling and beats the bowl or cone substitution. I would highly recommend giving it a try just once and seeing for yourself. :)
