World Street Food Congress 2016
Street food has long been a favourite of almost every Filipino. Whether it’s a stick of isaw (chicken or pig’s intestine), a bowl of beef pares (braised beef) with rice, or a couple of pieces of banana cue (saba banana on a stick) or turon (banana fritters), it’s hard not to find a Filipino who hasn’t tried street food.
This makes the Philippines an ideal location for the World Street Food Congress, happening on April 20 – 24 at Bonifacio Global City.

Led by popular American chef Anthony Broudain, Indonesian culinary expert William Wongso, and KF Seetoh, Singapore’s most prominent street food expert, the World Street Food Congress (WSFC) promises to bring the best of heritage street food culture from all over the globe.
