Top 10 Best Filipino Street foods

Here are the list of the best street foods in the Philippines.

1

Taho

Taho

It is a soybean snack with sweet syrup and tapioca pearls. Taho is one of the favourite breakfast and snacks of children and adults

2

Kamote-cue

Kamote-cue

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

3

Kwek Kwek

Kwek Kwek

Kwek kwek are quail boiled eggs dipped on orange batter while tokneneng are chicken or duck boiled eggs. Thery are deep fried until crispy. Same with fish balls, squid balls and chicken balls, they can be easily seen in the streets near schools

4

Calamares

Calamares

Calamares Breaded squid rings that are deep fried. This is very famous to Filipinos since they use it for pulutan or dry finger food that accompany alcohol drinks.

5

Isaw

Isaw

One of the best things about eating isaw (and true for lots of Filipino street foods) is seasoning with vinegar. Most people like to soak their isaw in chili onion vinegar and let is absorb as much vinegar as possible. The contrast of the smoky isaw with vinegar is extremely satisfying.

6

Helmet and Adidas

Helmet and Adidas

There are quite a few common Filipino street foods that are somewhat adventurous, and helmets and Adidas are names used to refer to chicken heads and chicken feet. Just like isaw, they are poked onto skewers and grilled over charcoal.

7

Mango Shrimp Paste

Mango Shrimp Paste

They typically use Indian mangoes and the mangoes are cut off the seed, poked onto skewers, and when you order one, the vendor will give your mango a nice spread of shrimp paste.

The mango is crisp and very sour, while the shrimp paste is salty and fishy and a bit spicy, making the ultimate marriage of flavors and textures.

8

Lechon Manok

Lechon Manok

Lechon manok, or roasted chicken, is more of a Filipino food main dish but I just had to include lechon manok on this Filipino street food list because there are some amazing street food rotisserie chicken stalls in Manila.

The chicken is stuffed with lemongrass, and rubbed in a marinade of soy sauce, sugar, and kalamansi, before is slow roasts to golden crispy perfection.

9

Ice Cream

Ice Cream

n the Philippines, street food ice cream that’s pushed around on carts is locally known as “dirty ice cream.” But even if everyone calls it that, I’m not a huge fan of that nickname. But anyway, ice cream is a hugely popular sweet snack.

There are a variety of flavors to choose from, but cheese ice cream, yes cheese ice cream, is among the most popular. You’ve got to try it, it even includes real little bits of cheese!

10

Balut

Balut

There’s no street food snack in the Philippines more famous than balut — a partially developed duck egg embryo: you could call it the king of all Filipino street foods!

It’s a snack that’s readily available, and very popular to eat, especially in the evening.

In order to eat balut, you crack a small hole at the top of the shell, and first drink out the chicken soup. You can then peel the rest of the egg, season with salt and vinegar, and eat the embryo and yolk.
