street food

i think this man is earning a lot from this business. every time i pass by this area, there's always people eating. maybe because street food are sold at very very cheap price.

Yeah, makes sense. All the prices of basic commodities are up. I realized lately that I am spending a lot on food. I really get surprised every time I visit my favorite restaurant. In one of these establishments, I even noticed that they are cutting on the amount of rice even if you are already paying 8 pesos for it. It is serious. What more with ordinary wage earners. This is one proof of that.....

IN the US, "street food" usually means hot dogs and pretzels - although, when I worked on Wall Street, there was a truck that came around and sold soup. What sort of street food are they selling in your photo?

Oh, it's nice the fact that people eat at the table where they buy the food: a sort of street restaurant.
Beautiful scene!

Lawstude said...

cheap and delicious dom, may libre pa TB.

Luke Wiley said...

It's very cheap, but is it any good? very nice one!

may kakaiba tlgang pang akit ang mga street foods na yan..kahit ilang beses na akong pinaaalahanan ng nanay ko na madumi yun, mapilit pa din at palihim pa din ako bumibili ng fishball sa may kanto namin..masarap naman kasi tlga lalo na kapag may tamis- anghang na sawsawan..
during my college days, trip na trip ko yung tig pipisong hotdog at yung calamares na tig dadalawang piso..hehe
na miss ko tuloy ang lugar ng gastambide..

Very interesting. I always love street scene. I like the profile photo where you wrote your name on the sand. Very nice.

my gulch said...

they are not only cheap, they are readily available. of course we are not so sure about their hygenic value but who cares when your stomach is growling of hunger, hehe. fan ako ng mga street foods kase matapang sikmura ko. di lang ako fan ng mga exotic food. this is an interesting angle!

mimi said...

parang painting... ganda ng shot!

masarap kumain sa mga ganyan... iba luto nila.

Stanley said...

I agree! There is nothing better than street food!!! I love going down to the local night market once in a while and buy them awesome snack.

prinsesamusang said...

sure it's cheap. but i am scared of getting hepa. it's not that maarte ako at ayaw ko ng street food. health reasons yun. dapat mag ingat. ang panget na nga ng lifestyle ko eh dadagdagan ko pa ang risks! dong mag-ingat ka din!

Carver said...

That's a nice shot. We also have a lot of street food in U.S. cities but it's usually fast and easy, not a sit down mean. That looks like good meals in your shot.

redlan said...

mabenta talaga ang food business lalo na kapag pang masa. namimili rin ako ng kinakainan. basta malinis lang. hindi naman lahat ng resto o mamahaling food stall ay malinis. try to check their kitchen.

KRIS JASPER VAN DYKE said...

I wonder how you took that foto? U dont fly, do u?

Shionge said...

Street food is wonderful besides being cheap, it is the sight, smell and taste everything Dong....Singapore is moving too fast that we don't have any street food ;(

EM said...

Iniisip ko kung saan ka umakyat para makuhanan sa ganoong angle yung subject mo. I can think of many but the important thing is how you were able to project the image. We're like peeking through from above. Naalala ko tuloy yung pensive sa Harry Potter. Maybe if we dunk our head deep enough... we will be able to taste that well patronized street food!! YUM!

ifoundme said...

very convenient kasi at parang di ako matigil kakatawa sa comment ni lawstude. honga! libre TB at hepatitis A. hahaha!

equilibrium2008 said...

Hay naku Dong dun sa area namin meron nga dun nakapagpatapos na ng college because of kwek-kwek and isaw eh. Naisip ko tutal magandang business yun kaso madami na akong competition sa amin eh...

R-yo said...

umakyat ka ba ng poste? he he.nway, i think konti lang din kita nya. with the expensive raw materials, mahirap na yata maka mark-up ng malaki.

atticus said...

sarap ng street food. kaso ang vocabulary ko ay limited lang sa "let's make tusok-tusok the fishball."

bakit mataas ang kuha mo? paano mo ginawa iyan? lumipad ka?

Shawie said...

oh, yeah... that business is really good... reminded me of my college days! we always have to go ride in a jeepney (the whole class, lol) after our late night class - 9PM to eat dinner at our fave kamayan restaurant, nakaka miss!

jericho said...

miss ko na ang isaw, kwek-kwek at hotdog!... especially the hotdog ... hehehe

sardonicnell said...

STREET FOOD, hinahanap hanap ko yan dito sa US. yong mga fishball carts, mangga and bagoong, gotohan at pati na rin yong BBQ sa may kanto. and i get to experience all that again this coming dec 2008. na eexcite na akong umuwi!

Selerines said...

It is cheap.. But how far it is hygienic my friend?

dave said...

yeah, looks like he does... hahaha... nyway, yeah i'm stuck in iloilo for the rest of the year... and yeah, i just make those banners in my blog... i'll inttroduce you to a lot of street foods here that i rarely see or don't see in manila at all...=D

Nanaybelen said...

Sigurado, malaki amg kita nya. tubong lugaw daw yan. kaya lang, malinis kaya?

kegler747 said...

Ano yung nasa picture? Mami at balut? hehehe

SandyCarlson said...

That's quite a repast!

richarddiongson.com said...

i used to eat in a cheap restaurant.. syempre naman, dahil ba naman sa hirap ng buhay..

nasa tao na yan..

pag takot sa hepa why not magpahepa vaccine..? hehe

just be responsible...

Heart of Rachel said...

Street food can be so enticing but we also need to take a little caution to avoid getting sick.

That place looks well maintained. Maybe that's why he has lots of customers.

Erick said...

mahilig ako sa street foods.

sa baclaran ba yan?

Lalaine said...

sa totoo lang masarap minsan kumain ng mga street foods... kaso kalaban mo naman eh dumi at delikado sa kalusugan... pero anu magagawa? kasama ata ang dumi sa sarap ng street foods eh... hehehe... yngat yngat lang sa pagkain ng mga ganitong pagkain kase mas mahal ang bayd sa ospital... hehehe

Abaniko said...

Or maybe the foods are really yummy.

I love the adventure of eating at sidewalk food stalls.

Ely said...

kakatakot lang kasi minsan, ndi mo alam kung pano naprepare, so medyo napapaisip ka din kung dapat ba kumain o hindi.

sho said...

I love street food. I sure miss those university days when my friends and I would drive up to Johor Bahru, a city of Malaysia just North of us for supper. It'sreally cheap there too.

eastcoastlife said...

Is he selling local food? It looks like Chinese dishes to me. :)

collapsingbarrycade said...

great photo. great way to capture a local scene. damn, donG hO, when will you ever stop making sense in your photos and posts? Hahaha :)

Toe said...

Sa mga ganyang kainan... jan ang masarap. :)

boying said...

hmmm. kakagutom. ganda ng view ah. galing sa itaas.

eye in the sky said...

as long as you see the food being well cooked, right in front of you, you're safe... :->

Dakilang Islander said...

paborito ko ang inihaw na isda dati at least nakita ko paano niluto..mura naman talaga kc ang street food kaya patok!

mirage2g said...

Its true, should there be those kinds of streetfood here Id eat some too! (There's pizz and kebap-shawarma) but surely our pinoy streetfood is a lot lot better!

Shalini Gowrisankar said...

Street foods are always cheap and delicious :)

Nice blog you've got! :)

Bryan Anthony the First said...

bitukang baboy ang fave ko
nice photos by the way

woof!

Panaderos said...

Nice overhead shot. Some of these humble-looking eateries have actually made their hardworking owners quite wealthy. Some of those eateries are gems too in terms of the quality of food.

neuroticsister said...

hindi ba nakakatakot kumain sa iyong kinuhanan? The worst thing about being a nurse is that you actually know what you may get just by merely looking at things! lol

Nyl said...

I eat street food depending on the area. Sometimes we have to make sure that there is a good hygiene (at least)where it is situated.

..pero in fairness masarap talaga ang street food at mas mura pa.

lei said...

paminsan minsan masarap din kumain sa ganyan.. lalo na pag medyo tight na ang budget. :)

BlogusVox said...

Noong pumunta kami sa Hongkong, kumain din kami nang "street foods". The only difference is the vendors practiced hygiene. Sana ganyan din sa atin.

BTW donG, I passed a blog award to you. You may claim it here.

The Islander said...

maganda ang pwesto. hehe.

caryn said...

wow, anlaki naman ng tulak-tualk cart nya --- that thing is moveable right? i miss fishballs. and quail eggs. and buttered corn on the cob. and turon!!!

Raft3r said...

i love street food
mapa Maynila man yan, HK, Bangkok, at kung san-san pa
masarap ang madumi
hehe

mirage2g said...

I saw our street foods featured sa bizarre foods! naku!

Namiss ko fishball!! lol.

Maya said...

It has this appeal.I have experience it when i visited my cousin in Cagayan de Oro years ago.it was one of the best langoniza bbq I ever had. they look like little ball.
And i still dream to do it again.

Prices are really up, perhaps these people patronizing it because it cheaper for them.they don't need to buy in volume & save them time to cook.
