I eat a lot of them! I usually eat isaw ( chicken intestine) and kwek-kwek ( quail eggs covered by flour) and siomai. There are many street foods in the Philippines. hehe.

I like street foods but I don't really eat them a lot. Does street foods in the parking lot a Lowes and Home Depot count? If so then that's where I usually get street food. They always prepare it well and it's always cooked right. I had never had chicken intestine or quail eggs before. I'm not sure if they get Quail here in America. Do they fry Quail eggs or is it hard boiled?

That's just the risk when eating street foods. But if you really have the guts to eat those food haha there won't be any problem. I haven't been sick even once because of eating those kind of food and I'm wishing I won't be sick in the future. They just taste so great and so cheap!

Boy, I don't know about the chicken intestine.....that's brave. Here our street foods are hot dogs hich I don't think is any better than the chicken guts, there's pretzels which a kind of a bread dough shape almost like a horseshoe, serve with mustard. Sometimes you can get them sweet with cinnamon.There are many kinds of sausages with the different condiments

In Malaysia, there are a lot of street food, or we called them hawker's food. I don't really know what the food are called in English, there are burgers, cendols (a kind of drink), some fried food, Laksa (a kind of spicy soup noodle), and etc. There are also night markets here selling many variety of street food here. Yeah, I do eat them since I was young. Though it's said to be not hygienic, the food are really nice and less expensive too.

I like to eat isaw(tina-i in our own language here in Cebu), siomai, timpura and fishballs. Kwek-kwek i guess is more popular in Manila coz i havent tried it here in Cebu. Siomai is becoming more and more popular here paired with PUSO(hanging rice).
