There is no doubt that our country has a thriving street food culture, especially here in the metropolis. From the carts that offer cheap fishball to some filling goto sold by those streetside stalls, Filipino street food is a fascinating experience in itself. It should be no surprise that this year’s edition of the World Street Food Congress was held here in the metropolis recently, serving as an opportunity for contemporary Filipino street food to take center stage along with the street food of other countries who participated in this special event.
It’s been a long while since the Urban Roamer last visited the then emerging food strip along Maginhawa Street, which traverses the neighborhoods of Sikatuna Village and Teachers Village. Since then, many things have changed in the neighborhood as business grew even more in the area with more restaurants opening up and more food choices being offered. Thus, it was but proper that the Urban Roamer revisit this bustling area. And what better opportunity to do so than an event that was held last December 12 throughout the length of Maginhawa Street, the Quezon City Food Festival.
