Definitely! Food sold in the street are really tempting and tasty. Every since my grade school years, I tried eating street food. There's tempura, kikiam, mangga hilaw (green mangoes), taho, halo-halo, isaw, balot, and the list would go on and on... You'll definitely miss a big part of your life if you have tried eating some. heheheh

Sorry for the typo. What I meant in my last statement was "You'll definitely miss a big part of your life if you have not tried eating some." =)

I love street foods, and also try to make sure that they are clean, Street foods like balut, barbeque, miki, kasuy, kewk-kwek and penoy as well. These are foods that I think is what reflects us filipinos, that we love to eat them at streets and we enjoy it's very distinct taste.

Street food is yummy. But in moderation. They say it's bad when you eat street food every day. I always eat kwek-kwek and isaw. They're good but I get to eat them like once or twice a month only.

Yes, yummy street foods. There are different types we have the helmet(chicken head), adidas(chicken feet), "tinae"(chicken intestines) and a lot more. I suggest you try eating "ginabot". It really tastes good.

Of course, I love street foods! fishballs, kwek kwek, isaw, balut and others. When I was younger, my friends and I used to eat those foods after classes only to be scolded by elders who were not used to eating those types of foods. But we would just laugh our hearts out and head home. It was fun and whenever I go back home, I would still wait for 'manong's karitela' to find its way in our area and indulge myself with those 'streetfoods'.

i never did that in my entire life. i lived in manila for alsmost 13 years, but i never bought those street foods. they are most of the time not prepared and cook properly that they become a source of people getting sick. to name one- hepatitis.

I eat penoy, kwek-kwek, and squid balls because there are many vendors in front of my school. There is also mango with bagoong. These food are delicious though eating too much makes me puke. I don't like it when I eat many.

I generally prefer to eat the food which is made on streets as I can see personally how hygenically it is prepared. But in the hotels they follow most unhygenic practices and as a result loose health.

me, me, me!! i love eating streetfoods! i really dont mind those people who are hesitant in buying streetfoods because they claim that it is dirty or unsanitized. my mom used to tell me that also but we are old enough to distinguish if the vendor's food are really dirty or not. and besides, streetfoods taste good, sometimes, i even get a craving for them. :)
