    A Street Food worth trying out


    Hot dogs? Hamburgers? step aside for a moment
    This unusual street food won't disappoint you, it may look unsightly but once you have a taste of it you will surely come back for more.

    It has a unique appeal that differentiates it from modern gourmet and fast foods.


    It is called "ISAW" a common street food from the Philippines , made from barbecued pig or chicken intestines. Eating it will make you feel like a local for sure.


    But before you say something like "Disgusting and Yuck", I'll tell you that it's clean and safe for eating.

    The intestines are thoroughly cleaned several times inside and outside before they are grilled.


    It goes really well with Vinegar added with onions, peppers and a dash of spices.


    It can also be done like a barbecue since it's grilled the same way.


    It looks like a worm but actually tastes like chicken.
    Happy eating!
