Eye on the Philippines
Day and night, I would explore the surrounding regions looking for new and unusual things. One item that I found to be most enjoyable, and something that really showcases the various regions of the Philippines, was the food stalls.
No matter where you go, the streets are always filled with small food stalls or road-side grills. Or better yet, the street-vendors who walk back and forth between well-populated areas, or hopping on a bus to sell their goods to daily commuters and travelers.
The food ranges from the usual fare such as chicharron, fried peanuts, squid and fish balls, to the more bizarre such as, grilled chicken feet or intestine, balut (fertilized duck egg), and my personal favorite, the fried one-day-old chicken.
