Why I love pinoy foods?


Pinoy are known to enjoy the average three meals a day breakfast, lunch and dinner plus desserts or “merienda” as most Filipino call it, two times a day during morning at around 10 am and in the afternoon at 3 pm, that seem to be the trade mark of being a Filipino . Filipino are said to be creative, they want to make up almost anything into something new, creative yet but not expensive, including food. People of other countries may prefer dining and eating pizzas when hunger pangs strikes. Just like other countries also Filipino are more fun in eating streets foods that cost a few pesos. Everywhere here in the Philippines you see people crowding in the streets because of the food that only the Philippines have, some of this food are fish ball, kwek kwek,kikiam, and pi’noy and also the different delicious taste of street barbeques.

And at night, just expect that somebody would shout balut! Balut! It is a fertilized duck or chicken egg with a nearly developed embryo inside, boiled and eaten in its shells. Balut is rich in protein, hearty snack and believed to be an aphrodisiac. This chicken egg can be bought usually from balut vendors who roam around the city at night. I love balut it is more delicious when you put spicy vinegar (with onions and siling labuyo) and a little bit salt, yummy!

  2. I haven't tried balut with vinegar. Maybe I should next time. Penoy is also good! But kwek-kwek is my all time favorite! :)
