Potato Rolls are ensaymada-like bread that use flour mixed with potatoes, instead of just flour. The result is a soft, melt in your mouth bread topped with butter, sugar and cheese.
In Davao City, the best potato rolls are baked by Mam Bebs Bakeshop and Refreshment Parlor (formerly La Suerte Restaurant and Bakery).

This brings back memory when I was staying at my aunt’s house in Matina. So Yummy!!! She would bring a lot of the potato rolls from La Suerte Restaurant & Bakery, but I thought I should just eat one, then another one and another, and before I know it I almost ate a whole bag full. “Forget diet - not today!” I said to myself back then. Glad I did!
Now I can only eat Krispy Creme Doughnut which is the same softness - but not the same taste. Goldilocks, Red Ribbon and Valerios in the Bay Area have almost the same stuff, but not comparable to La Suerte’s taste. Too bad for me though, but I gotta have it again when I go back to Davao.
