Pan de Ube – Doña Marites Panaderia


Packaging design for a local Philippine bakery in Barcelona, Spain.

Pandesal (Spanish: pan de sal, literally translated as “salt bread”) is a classic breakfast roll in the Philippines. A very popular variation is Pan de Ube.

Ube, meaning tuber in Tagalog, is a purple yam originally from the Philippines. Different than the purple sweet potato, it has an even sweeter, more mellow taste than its orange relative.
