Street Foods In Quezon Province

 Popular street foods I see in Lucena City

Are you one of those cowboys who normally buy foods from street vendors?  When craving for certain foods sets in, do you impulsively buy them when you see the “maglalako” passing by?   

I’d like to mention some of the more common street foods I see here in Lucena City:   

1.     Fish Balls  -  who wouldn’t want to try this stuff?  I’ll make tusok-tusok the fishball” is how some of the ‘pasosyal’ people would say it.  But there is nothing really sosyal about eating the fishball.   It is made of  fish meat, cooked in loads of fats you call oil and then served on barbeque sticks.  You would hardly notice the meat ‘coz its mostly the flour that sorrounds it but  what makes it special is the sauce – spicy, regular or sweet.  Fishball is an exotic food that would leave you wanting for more.  This is sold normally near school campuses. 

2.     Balut  – this is a fertilized duck or chicken egg with a nearly developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell.  It is commonly sold in a basket together with the penoy and some chicharon.  Best eaten when dipped in vinegar or just plain salt.   The best part of balut I like is the ‘sabaw’ which I sip as I crack the egg shell and make a hole.  I don’t normally eat balut but I have seen some really enjoy it, especially if the chick is very visible on the inside.  Balut is rich in protein and believed to be an aphrodisiac. 

3.     Sorbetes or Dirty Ice Cream – sorbetes or dirty ice cream is given that name because of the supposedly unsanitary conditions in the smaller creameries (mostly cottage industries) where it is made compared to the bigger ice cream factories such as SELECTA  and MAGNOLIA where stricter quality control are enforced.   It is also  called dirty because it is peddled on the streets.  The dust gets into the ice cream bins when the cart is open.  Also, there is a standing joke that mamang sorbetero or the guy who solds the ice cream answers the call of nature and does not wash his hands, and also use the same hand to push the cart, light a cigarette, or blow his nose, then he touches the cone…ewww.  Kinda gross if you think  about it,  huh.  But lately, I noticed, they wrap the cones with napkins.  I still like my dirty ice cream though, especially the cheese and mango flavors.

  

4.     Chicharon – chicharon or cracklings is deep fried fat.. comes from pork skin.  This is best eaten when dipped in vinegar with a little salt, some chopped onions, garlic and crushed chilli pepper.  Men usually pair this with ice cold beer or other alcoholic drinks.  The chicharon comes in different varieties, like the chicharon bulaklak or pork omentum, chicken skin, chicken intestines and pork skin (rind).  It is not a very healthy food thou because of high cholesterol content,  so don’t indulge in it on a regular basis. 

5.      Grilled Chicken Intestines or Isaw / Adidas or Grilled Chicken Feet /  Helmet or Grilled Chicken Head -  I put them all as one item because they are usually sold together and are all parts of chicken.   The isaw or grilled chicken intestines are deep-fried in a skewer, served with sweet, sour or spicy sauce.  Also referred to as IUD because it resembles an intra-uterine device.  Adidas are chicken feet marinated and grilled or cooked adobo style.  After the claws and tips of the toes are sliced off, the feet are washed in hot water and tough layer of the skin is scraped off.  Helmet or grilled chicken head are tiny heads of chicken grilled to perfection.  Filipinos are so creative, they don’t waste any parts of the chicken and make good use of them. 

6.     ice Scramble – it is basically shaved ice mixed with powdered skimmed milk, plenty of sugar, food color and flavoring.  Using a giant egg beater, mixing is not done in a blender but a tin pail.  They also add some chocolate syrup and top it with pinipig  before they hand it to you.  Usually appears pinkish  in color.  Just when you’re too thirsty but not in the mood for ice cream, ice scramble is the next best thing.

 

7.     Mani (peanuts)  – peanuts either boiled, roasted or deep-fried and seasoned with garlic and salt.  I just can’t resist the smell of peanuts cooked deep-fried with lots of garlic as I pass by the streets.  You can’t help but buy them, especially when they are still hot and crunchy.   

8.     Binatog – a warm concoction of boiled corn, coconut, sugar and milk.  Boiled corn kernels are intentionally overcooked so that they are literally bursting out of their skins.  This one is a yummy street food that I always like especially when I hear the maglalako selling this on our neighborhood.  Most of the time, the corn is still hot and the more grated coconut and brown sugar there is, the better it taste for me. 

9.      Green Mango with Bagoong – if you think of classic pairings in foods like puto and dinuguan, green mangoes with bagoong or shrimp paste would come instantly to our  mind.  This is one of my favorite indulgence especially when I crave for something salty and sour. 

10.   taho – who would not forget the famous taho sold on the streets?  In the morning, as I am awakened by the voice of the magtataho, I would want to rush downstairs and buy me some,  just to have a taste of that sweet syrup mixed with the soft, silken tofu.  This staple comfort food is a signature sweet and can be found all over the country.  For just P 5.00 a cup, you can already enjoy it hot or chilled.  Sometimes, I would chill it first on the refrigerator and enjoy it later. Oh, and don’t forget the pearl sago that goes with it.

 

There you go, these ten (10) street foods that I listed are the same stuff you probably see all over Quezon Province often as you walk downtown or at the streets of your neighborhood.  I am sure, you can still add a lot more to these foods, feel free to share your own list of street foods.  Chow!

I tried out the Street Foods In Quezon Province as well and as a foreigner, I felt it tasted amazing. The custom essay writing service previously spoke about this which honestly felt amazing in person.
