Philippine Bread House
You’ll find Philippine Bread House in a small shopping plaza with two other Filipino businesses in Jersey City’s Five Corners. The move: swing by in the morning and load up on sweet and squishy ensaymadas, coco buns, pan de sal, ube cakes, bibingka galapong, and whatever else speaks to you from behind the pastry cases or in the well-stocked pre-packaged displays. $10 (which is their credit card minimum) will get you far, but no one’s stopping you from over-ordering and freezing your haul as a little treat for your future self. If you come during lunch, plan on also ordering one of their hot-dish combos that come with rice and your pick of different stews or other meat and seafood dishes.
