5 PH eateries in 50 World Street Food Masters list
MANILA – The World Street Food Congress (WSFC) wrapped up its five-day event in Manila by recognizing 50 “street food masters” across the globe.
Five eateries from the Philippines were included in the Top 50 World Street Food Masters list, which was chosen by a panel of industry experts.
Aling Lucing Sisig in Pampanga is the highest ranked Philippine entry at No. 4, and was credited by the WSFC as the creator of the well-loved Filipino dish sisig.
At No. 7 is General’s Lechon in Manila, which “has Negros-style lechon perfected down pat.”
The other Philippine eateries that made the cut are Zeny’s Pinangat (22nd) in Bicol, which serves pork wrapped in taro leaves; Sharyn’s Kansi Beef Soup (32nd) in Bacolod, which serves a soup with beef chunks soured by a local fruit called batuan; and Doods Ihaw and BBQ (46th) in Davao City, a street food stall specializing in wood-fired tuna jowl.
Topping the list is Singapore’s Hill Street Tai Wah Bak Chor Mee, one of the first hawkers to obtain a Michelin star. The stall is known for its sambal and black vinegar-laced pork noodles, which is described as “the stuff addiction is made of.”
The rest of the entries came from the United States, Thailand, China, Mexico, Malaysia, Vietnam, Taiwan and India.
