Notable Edibles #2 – Street Food (Bonifacio Street)

Street Food (Bonifacio Street)

Street food, it forms a huge part of the dining scene probably in every country and in every city in the world.  In the City of Pines, these little snackables are mostly found near schools.

Walking along Mabini Street just recently, I noticed that the area where the stall of Aquino’s used to be had been fenced off.  (Probably another “on this site will rise” a commercial building *sigh.)

(I hope Aquino’s wonderful store of tokeneng, mango halves that you “use” like a spoon for the shrimp paste and palamig/coolers just moved someplace nearby … if they did, UB people please give me a heads up about where I can find them . Thanks, guys! I really appreciate it. (“,))

“Dumplings are better than flowers.”

There comes a time in everyone’s life when the craving for dumplings is so strong.  So strong, in fact that the siomai sold by vendors in pushcarts near schools and also some Baguio neighborhoods is not going to be enough.  (Affordable as they are, they’re tiny.  There’s much …or rather, little to be said about your choices for dumplings, too.  *ngahaha.  Oh, not unless, you’re happy with tokneneng like the delicious ones from the store in front of UB.  Ohhh, wow, major craving.)
