Hungry? Fret not!
When you’re in Cebu, you’ll never leave with an empty stomach because street foods are always available on every corner of the streets 24/7!
Ah! The ubiquitous tempura and fish ball. They’re like a married couple – most tempura stands also sell fish ball, probably because they’re both made of fish.
Which one do you prefer, tempura or fish ball?
A childhood favorite. Manoy taho vendor usually appears early in the morning when the rooster still crows.
When’s the last time you tasted this dessert?
Avail it while it’s still literally hot!
Hot cake vendors usually sell juice (comes with a variety of flavors) too!
Add salt or hipon for extreme yumminess! Or if you’re hardcore, you can eat it without condiments!
Banana cue and camote cue for snack:
and barbecue for supper (don’t forget your puso!):
It’s definitely worth a try. Grilled corn tastes good!
Siomai sold in streets usually costs 4-5 pesos. This dish is very popular in Cebu.
For me, siomai tastes like beef loaf…
Who doesn’t love crispy chicken? Well, you don’t have to go to your favorite fast food restaurant to taste one!
A single order of crispy chicken is typically accompanied with patis as sauce. Crispy chicken stalls also sell puso to complete your dinner.
Much more affordable than lechong baboy. Lechong manok is usually served during birthdays, but you can also serve this even without a special occasion.
There are two types of peanut vendors.
One is the raw/boiled peanut vendor:
The other one is the roasted peanut vendor:
Both are equally appetizing for me, but I’m biased towards roasted peanut since I’ve been eating it since kindergarten days.
They say eating balut helps strengthen your knees. Some also say it’s aphrodisiac.
Protip: Eat balut at night on a dimly lit corner of the street so you can’t see the horrendous bird embryo!
