Filipino Bakehaus (Adelaide)

We were on Commercial Road in Port Adelaide and Peter was looking for his special honey harvested in Kangaroo Island. After parking our car, I was stunned with what I saw. It was a white van with letters "Filipino Bakehaus in Asian Grocery". My fingers raised on my phone keypad and talked to the shopkeeper.

Yes, there is a Filipino bakery and grocery in Adelaide! I literally jumped for joy after seeing the familiar biscuits, curing powder and anti-deodorants. My jaw dropped when I saw pan de sals and ensaymada. The three of us gorged on the sugar-drenched ensaymada buns.

But that is not all--they have a freezer. When I opened it, I saw tocino, longganisa, carps and milk fish! Oh god almighty, they have milkfish!

So if you want to cook Filipino dishes everyday, just go to 98 Commercial Road, Port Adelaide. Their number is 8241 1311. Maybe, I will see you there.

For those looking for this store, I am sorry to say that they have closed down their business. But there is a bigger Filipino store at the Adelaide central train station.
