The Philippines is one of the top food destinations in the world. Aside from its rich traditional cooking, Pinoys have devised ways to make food a lot tastier. By exploring various techniques and ingredients, Filipinos have made eating delicious a lot less affordable. This part of the cuisine is the cherished streetfood. Streetfood is what feed millions of Filipinos every day. It’s what people crave for and what people want. Pinoys just love making turo-turo, tusok-tusok, and takal-takal budget-friendly yet great tasting grub because we don’t just have bbq, we have isaw/sss, betamax, bato, helmets, and more! Our eggs go with anything; ham, bacon, tocino, tapa, hotdogs, and footlongs. Home cooked meals can be found everywhere and not just at home.
The desire for good food is more than just soothing the rumblings in the tummy but satisfying the cravings of the palate. Through restaurant hunts and accidental discoveries, people have identified amazing food stops and dining hubs that fill the need for good food in more ways than one. From restaurants with unparalleled specialties to streetfood talked about by thousands, food has come a long way from being a mere necessity to live but something that makes living a lot more pleasurable.
