A Southeast Asian based television food program is thinking of doing an episode on Manila and street food, and they asked me to identify particular dishes and places to eat them. I told them I wasn’t a huge consumer of street food, more of a market person, so I thought I should put the question out to all of marketmanila’s readers instead. This is a different show from the Taste Matters program that Marketman appeared in a couple of weeks ago… as far as I am concerned, the more exposure Filipino food gets in the international realm, the better. So how about it, care to share some of your favorites and where to buy them? The first time I wrote a post on this blog regarding street food, it was a “fruity” entry to the Lasang Pinoy III series, featuring green mango and other fruits and vegetables one was likely to find for sale on Manila’s streets, link here. If you read the round-up of that Lasang Pinoy topic, there are more than 30 posts from Filipino bloggers around the world, featuring some 30+ different types of street food, coordinated by Kai from bucaio. I also wrote a post on street food during a political rally, which featured over a dozen, mostly snack type items… The recurring theme, at least on this blog, is that most readers grew up wary of street food, and were often discouraged from indulging… though many did anyway. Today, I find a lot of street food is fried and incredibly greasy… but what do I know? Your comments and suggestions of what to eat and where to eat it are greatly appreciated!
