Enjoying Street Food at the SM Streetfood Festival 2016

Although not everyone dig streetfoods, there is an increasing trend specially in the Philippines where it used to belong to the “streets” only. Today, it’s slowly finding its way into the mainstream consumers. In fact, there are couples who do enjoy streetfood very much more so when together with their special someone.

SM Street Food Festival

SM Markets, SM Mall’s supermarket arm, recently held the SM Streetfood Festival to showcase famous streetfoods in the Philippines.

We enjoyed the SM StreetFood Festival 2016 and we hope SM Markets and SM Hypermarket will organize this again for 2017! 🙂 Some of our favorite street food includes Pork BBQ, isaw and kwek-kwek. These are fun to eat especially the balut pinoy delicacy if you are adventurous enough (*wink).
