Streetfood here in the Philippines can be found in every corner, with every variety you can think of. Streetfood is not just barbecue, we have isaw, betamax, bato, helmet, and more. Fried food such as tokneneng, calamares, hotdogs can also be bought in the street. Home cooked meals can also be found everywhere and not just at home.
To say that Filipinos love streetfood is an understatement, street food is a way of life. Why do we love streetfood? It’s because it’s delicious, fast, affordable, and exciting. Oh yes, I get an instant high whenever I successfully pierced through that squid balls while it’s still immersed in the pan full of oil then dunk them in a spicy vinegar dip.
SM Hypermarket launched the Streetfood Festival 2016 to highlight the rich food culture of everyday Filipino food and highlights the talents of the people who make them.
The grand launch happened last August 31, 2016 at SM Hypermarket Fairview. I was able to enjoy my favorite street eats right inside the comforts of the mall.
I can still make turo-turo, tusok-tusok, and sawsaw without worrying about its sanitation. I’m sure all the vendors complied with food safety standards before they can sell here.
Check out some of the food stalls along with incoming game-changers such as Cebu Lechon Belly, Southern Dairy, Banchetto’s Crepes, Takoyaki, and Bacon-wrapped delights, the best-selling SM Markets Turon with Langka and more.
This takoyaki is only Php 35 for 3 pcs.
For dessert, try the Butter Cake Cream Cheese gelato from Souther Dairy, it’s so good!
My favorite food find is Turon from SM Eats, it’s huge! Filled with saba and langka, and sold for only Php 15!
Aside from the food stalls, check out the booths from Unilever, Nestle, San Miguel, Alaska, Del Monte, P&G, CDO, Frabelle, Farm Fresh and Bounty Fresh for irresistible promos such as price-offs and bundles.
There will also be cooking demos of the sponsors and renowned chefs. If you’re a fan of Chef Boy Logro like me, he will be present in all the SM Streetfood Festival 2016 road shows.
