It’s the Philippines’ turn to showcase the best of its street food heritage alongside the best in the world!

Popular Singaporean hawker festival World Street Food Congress has made its way to Manila, and this edition is one you wouldn't want to miss. 25 hawkers around the world will be participating in the five-day long food festival. Notable hawkers include Singapore’s Jin Ji Kway Chap, Alhambra Padang Satay, and Keng Eng Kee; Vietnam’s BánhCan 38; Indonesia’s Ayam Taliwang Bersaudara and Martabak Markobar; and Portland, Oregon’s Churros Locos.
