This Southeast Asian country is known for its many beautiful beaches, waterfront promenade, and centuries-old Chinatown, but don’t let us forget about the food. The combination of sweet and salty will have your taste buds dancing. Trying the street food as a foreigner should be an adventure in itself when you visit the Philippines.
Next time you are in the Philippines why not try a banana-q which is a whole banana or plantain skewered on a short thin bamboo stick, rolled in brown sugar; or a kamote-q which is a peeled sweet potato skewered on a stick, covered in brown sugar and then fried; or some fish balls or squid balls which are skewered on bamboo sticks then dipped in a sweet or savory sauce. Yeah, they like skewing their food.
Thanks to Gourmet Society for the graphic.
Have you tried any? Which is your favorite? Which of these would you love to try?

Filipino gal here! And I love that you featured our food above everything else. Each region has a distinct delicacy and we have 7,107 islands to fill your tummy! Time to go back and visit! 🙂

I’m trying to but I’ve not covered even a fourth of those islands yet. I mostly love the beaches and waterfalls. There are about 80 provinces each with a unique take on food. I would love to visit India one day too.
