Pinagong is a dense bread roll from the Philippines made with all-purpose flour, milk, and salt. It is a variant of pan de monja (monáy) distinguished primarily by its shape and the more complex pattern of scoring on top. The name means "made into a turtle", from Tagalog pagong ("turtle").[1][2][3][4]
