Sugar-Coated, Salted, and Unsalted Peanuts
You see peanuts displayed in three different varieties – sugar-coated, salted, and unsalted. The sugar-coated peanuts give you a sweet and crunchy experience. The salted ones offer a savory contrast, while the unsalted peanuts provide a healthy option. If you’re feeling adventurous, don’t miss the opportunity to try the spicy peanuts for an extra kick!
Kolo is a delightful snack made from breadfruit with latik. The rich, caramelized latik drizzled over the crispy breadfruit piques your curiosity.
Bananacue and Ginangang
You can never go wrong with bananas, may it be the one drizzled with ‘latik’ or the one covered with margarine and sugar.
Kwek-Kwek with Pepino
One of the easiest snacks to be addicted to is Kwek-Kwek, deep-fried quail eggs coated in orange batter, best paired with slices of fresh pepino (cucumber).
Tempura and Fishball
Finally, you spot a vendor selling tempura and fishball. The tempura, with its crispy coating and tender filling, looks tempting. You also decide to try a few fishballs dipped in a savory sauce for a more hearty snack.
