Regla Bread?!

June 7, 2007


during a burst of boredom and snack circumstances..

joiz: Pare, kain tayo, pan de regla πŸ˜† (Dude, let’s eat pan de regla)
sempai: Ano ung pan de regla? (What’s pan de regla?)
joiz: ung tinapay na may pulang matamis na chuva sa gitna (loosely translated: the bread with red sweet filing in the center)
sempai: ahhhh..
joiz: hehe ano bang tawag sa tinapay na to? (what is this bread really called?)
sempai: ewan ko eh, ireresearch ko (I don’t know, I’ll research it)
joiz: aaaah sya sya pan de regla na lang talaga sya sa akin (very well, for the meantime I’ll call it pan de regla)
sempai: sige sa akin rin, no choice di natin alam pareho e (me too, no choice, we both don’t know what it’s called)
joiz: pare imagine at the bakery: “ate pabili ng pan de regla” (“miss can I buy some pan de regla”)

I found out after research that this bread is called ‘Kabukiran’ in Pangasinan. In some places in Manila, it’s called ‘Lipstick’, obviously because of the red filing. Sometimes, also known as kalihim, a secretary or confider, I have no idea which really maybe both. In Cebu it’s called ‘Burikat’, meaning a GRO, a prostitute, a girl for hire. And unmistakably everywhere else it’s also known as ‘Pan de Regla’ because the center is red and the bread looks like a sanitary napkin. Enough said.

    πŸ˜† I think I just tainted this bread in a bad light. But I swear I love this bread, it tastes pretty good, nothing spectacular in taste but tastes good nonethe less. It’s the name (and its variations around the country) that is very very uhm.. err… interesting.

    Yeah aside from ube (violet filling), there’s mongo (brown filling), langka (yellow filling), pandan (green filling) too! But it’s very very common to see the pink or red pan de regla. :mrgreen: yummy!
