Great Street Food Experience 2017 When in The Philippines, or in any city for that matter, the true flavor and character of the locale can be seen on the streets; from the street parties, the street vendors, the street traffic and most of all, the street food! You’ll only really find the true essence of a town by emerging yourself in the culture and trying the weird, crazy and every-so-often-seemingly-strange customs. Trying street foods in the Philippines is very fun, challenging and saves some of your budget. Street foods are mostly spotted on schools, bus or jeep terminals, church, and parks. Prices of these street foods cannot go beyond 20 pesos or approximately 0.50 US dollars.
