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.

  1. 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! 🙂

      1. 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.

  2. Mmmmmh, most of this looks so good. I have never tried any of this, Everything under the Prito and Inihaw, I would like to try if I ever visit the Philippines. It all looks different and interessting, if not good 😛
