Isaw, kwek-kwek, tokneneng, betamax, adidas, balut, penoy…

These are just some of the kanto food we have grown up enjoying.

But let’s admit it. Our local street food have not been getting as much foreign tourist recognition as their hawker-style counterparts in countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia. Tourists still seem to be somehow hesitant when trying out our local food fare.

What happens then, when a fine dining establishment serves up local street eats?

Manila Hotel decided to do just that. It conceptualized to elevate Philippine street food from the food carts, sidewalk alleys and public markets, to our dining tables in this country’s premiere five-star hotel.

Street food served in style. Yes, that seems to be the goal here, and Manila Hotel’s culinary team led by Swiss Chef Konrad Walter seems to be doing a perfect job!

Here are just some of the dishes that’s taken a major overhaul in presentation, but otherwise tastes just as good (and even better!), reminiscent of all the good things we enjoy as Filipinos.
