Filipino Street Foods : Top 10

I really love filipino street foods. Listed below are the top 10 that every filipino knows and loves to eat when it comes to street foods here in the philippines.

1. Kamote-cue is sweet potato that's coated with brown sugar and deep-fried in oil; several large pieces are served on a thin bamboo skewer.

2. Banana-cue is saba (a fat cooking variety of banana) that's coated with brown sugar and deep-fried in oil; one large one or two small bananas are served on a skewer.

3. Kwek-Kwek are hard-boiled quail eggs coated with batter and then deep-fried. Tokneneng is the term when chicken eggs are used. Kwek kwek is almost the same street food compared to Tokneneng but quail eggs are used instead of chicken eggs.

4. Fish balls are round, airy fish-flavored dough deep-fried in oil and then skewered on a stick; various dipping sauces are provided. Squid balls and chicken balls are recent variations.

5. Adidas are grilled chicken feet on skewers; named after the three stripes in the German shoe company's logo. When someone hands you Adidas as a food, don’t be surprise to see sticks of chicken feet.

6. Walkmen are pork ears that so tender that Filipinos made it a street food to hit the local eating scene, in streets. It is dubbed as Walkman as it means ears of the pig. These tender ears are cleaned, seasoned then grilled in bamboo sticks.

7. Turon is banana wrapped like a spring roll and deep fried; jackfruit is sometimes included in the filling. his somewhat resembles banana spring rolls. These are also known as banana fritters.

8. Betamax is chicken or pig's blood that's dried and roasted; served cut into small cubes. Betamax is the term for dried chicken blood served and cut into small cubes resembling the aged Betamax tape. Betamax is served in barbeque sticks which are grilled until cooked.

9. Taho is a drink made from soft bean curd sweetened with caramel syrup.. You can spot a taho vendor from afar carrying two large metal cans suspended on a stick over his shoulder.

10. Iskrambol is a sweet, slushy milk-based drink that's a favorite of Filpino children. There's always an iskrambol vendor near elementary schools.

You, which one is your favorite? Don't worry stocks are unlimited in the philippines' streets. hehe
