quick bite

DAY 87 –

One of the best things living in the heart of Manila? Available street food in “almost” every corner.

Fish ball, Manila style

As per Wikipedia —

Fish balls in the Philippines are sold by street vendors pushing wooden deep frying carts. The balls are served skewered, offered with a choice of three kinds of dipping sauces: spicy (white/orange colored) – vinegar, water, diced onions and garlic, sweet (brown gravy colored) – corn starch, banana ketchup, sugar and salt, and sweet/sour (amber or deeper orange colored) – the sweet variety with lots of small hot chilis added. Regular fishballs sell at 1 US Cent.

Now swimming in a sweet sauce of onions and chili.

Just taking a look at it now makes me crave for it again. Comfort food need not be expensive. True enough, nothing beats life’s simple pleasures. 🙂
