Visiting the summer capital of the country is never complete without food tripping. Street foods are one of the best and cheap ways to taste Filipino foods. Of course, you can always find high-end restos where you can sit down comfortably. However, the fact is that street food has become part of the Filipino culture. Although, these foods vary from one place to another, I listed here street foods in Baguio City which you should not miss. Eating street foods in Baguio is one of the highlights in our trip.
Eating Street Foods in Baguio
What I can say is that you are missing a lot if you do not enjoy at least a few street foods in Baguio. The city has so much to offer. Selling street foods is already a way for many Filipinos. What the customers do is to eat from the vendor’s stand. By buying street foods, you are also helping them make a living. It works like a fast food and the prices are real low.
Below are list of street foods you can find in Baguio. Let me share our experience of eating street foods in Baguio.
Eating street foods in Baguio is never complete without the strawberry taho. I promise you can see this everywhere you go, almost 24 hours. From the time you wake up till late at night, I still see a lot of food vendors. Taho is a combo of slices of soya, tapioca pearls, sweet brown syrup and strawberry syrup – only in Baguio.
Strawberry Ice Cream
This is also one of our favorites during eating street foods in Baguio. You will miss half of your life if you don’t try it when you come to this place. If you wonder why would you eat ice cream on a cold weather, I say that you will be sad if you do not.
This is also one of the best-sellers. It is boiled sweet corn and then, topped with cheese.
Grilled Dried Squid (Pusit)
This is also the first time I tried this outside the Mines View Park, and I can say that it is a great appetizer! It made me want to eat more.
Deep Fried Isaw
This is the best among the street foods I tried. These are made with chicken intestines covered with flour, then deeply fried. The sauce is also super delicious!
More on sticks – Kwek-kwek, Fish Balls, Squid Balls and Tempura
Kwek Kwek is made of quail eggs. They’re golden brown to orange, crispy on the outside but protein-rich on the inside. This vendor stand also serves fish ball, squid balls and tempura on sticks.
Potato Fries on Sticks
These are very crispy and thin potato fries on sticks – it is really good, I promise!
The street foods in the Philippines, especially in the Summer Capital of the country, are vibrant and exciting. Who can resist them?
