Just one of the dishes at the jamboree: rice noodles topped with seafood, greens, tofu and satay sauce, plus two sticks of satay.
They say if you want to try authentic dishes from a particular country, go straight for the street food. This year, they’re bringing in the best street food from different parts of Asia to Manila. Founded by KF Seetoh, the founder of Makansutra and the World Street Food Congress, the week-long event is a tribute to street food and will host dialogues on street food and showcase 25 hawker stalls of unique dishes. One dish will cost around Php200 and up.
2. Sisig Fiesta 2016
April 22, 2016, 10 am
Museo Ning Angeles
Sisig at Mila’s Tokwa’t Baboy in Pampanga
Before you head to the beach, stop by Pampanga and pay tribute to the unofficial pulutan of the Philippines. This year, the Sisig Capital of the Philippines is holding the Sisig Fiesta at the Museo Ning Angeles, where you’ll get to try varieties of sisig such as tofu, salmon, bangus and even balut (who knew?) from different restaurants. There will even be food demos by Chef Claude Tayag and Chef Sau Del Rosario.
1. Bicol: The Coco Spice Adventures
April 29 to May 1
EatYourHistory@FoodHolidays.ph / 09189001415
This is taking food tripping to another level. If you’ve got the cash to spare, it comes highly recommended. This event by Food Holidays is a three-day culinary expedition (airfare included) to Sorsogon and Albay, where you’ll get to learn the basics behind making pili, cooking pinangat and longganiza and harvest sea urchin and grapes at Panumbagan Sandbar. There’s also a bit of sightseeing in between, so you’ll get to visit Sumlang Lake, Cagsawa Ruins and Daraga Chruch in Albay.
