Famous Street Foods in the Philippines

Siamo giunti alla fine del nostro viaggio tra i sapori e i profumi della cucina filippina. Lo Street food è una vera caratteristica del mio Paese: una grande varietà di piatti tipici a prezzi bassi. In ogni angolo delle strade ci sono i carrettini oppure delle bancarelle con le specialità più gustose della tradizione culinaria filippina. In Italia si dice: “l’appetito viene mangiando. Nelle Filippine aggiungo: “l’appetito viene camminando!”

Street foods is ready-to-eat food or drink typically sold by a vendor on a street and in other public places such as on schools, parks, churches, bus terminals and at markets or fair. It is often sold from a portable food booth, food cart, or food truck and meant for immediate consumption.
