Streetfood perfectly sums up how much Filipinos love food. It’s very tasty yet it doesn’t cost much to enjoy. It is one of the reasons why the Philippines is among the top food destination in the world.
Streetfood has become more than just something to soothe the rumblings in the tummy. It’s a rich traditional culture that every Filipino cherishes and even associates precious memories with; the excitement of hearing the magtataho, the barkada feasting in fishballs, kwek-kwek, and isaw, even the moment you overcame your fear and found out how enjoyable eating balut is.
Having successfully showcased the rich street food culture of the Philippines in SM Fairview, SM Valenzuela, SM Bicutan, and SM Molino, SM Hypermarket saves the best for last in their Streetfood Festival Grand Finale at SM Mall of Asia (MOA). The food event that thousands have indulged in cooks up a finale that retains its winning ingredients of food, discounts, freebies, and demos while adding more spice to the already superb mix.
Aside from great deals on favorite food buys allowing shoppers to recreate the streetfood experience in their homes, coming back are the fantastic specialties from SM Eats, Cebu Lechon Belly, and Southern Dairy. The well-known foodie paradise, Baga Manila, joins the event bringing, not only grilled Pinoy delights but also American burgers, Japanese sushi and tempura, Vietnamese spring rolls, Korean bibimbab, Mexican nachos and tacos, Mediterranean steaks, Middle-Eastern shawarma, US pancakes, desserts, and a lot more. Celebrity chefs will also be at the event to demo how to cook different dishes ranging from impressive potlucks to easy-to- make merienda for the kids. The Streetfood Festival Grand Finale will also draw the lucky winner of P100,000 shopping spree at SM Hypermarket.
