Street Food of the Philippines

philippines street food

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.
