Being Filipino means familiarity with street foods. What are street foods ?, you might ask. Street foods are, as the name implies, foods that are vended on the street, by the street, off the street. In the list are fishball, kwek-kwek (quail eggs dipped in flour then fried), barbeque ( all parts of pig or fowl), etc. I can go on and on but that is for another blog article. Anyway, Filipino street foods are boring compared to what is being sold and eaten in the streets of Beijing. Go on, have a look at the picture.
