For regular readers of this website, you are familiar with the different writers here. I am Bob Martin (aka “MindanaoBob”), my wife is Feyma, and one of our kids is Aaron. All three of us write here on LiP. You are probably aware that Aaron has been in the States for the past 7 months or so. He has been kind of exploring his American roots, getting re-connected with my side of the family, etc.
Aaron is a real lover of Street Food in the Philippines. He has written of his love for street food often on this site, and he always tells me that aside from family, it is one of the things he misses most about the Philippines.
Well, while looking at some videos on YouTube, I came across a video all about Street Food in Davao! It was done by some UM (University of Mindanao) students, I believe as a class project. They go around and sample street foods around Davao City, talk to some of the vendors and customers at the street food stalls too.
Aaron will be coming home soon, and I wanted to get him warmed up and hungry by watching the Davao Street Food video! Not only warmed up, but hungry for home! I gotta make sure he really gets on that plane and comes home, after all! 🙂
In the video you can see some scenes of normal daily life around Davao City. Some of this video was actually filmed quite close to the area where we live in Davao City. Additionally, and importantly, they talk a fair amount about the safety of eating street food. You gotta make sure it is clean and prepared properly so that you don’t get sick! If you find street food vendors that offer healthily prepared food, make them your regular stop for trusted street food!
I am so looking forward to seeing my son again after such a long time away, and I know that Feyma is as well. In fact, when he gets home I think I will slip him a bit of money and let him go for a Street Food Feast! I know he will enjoy that, and be happy to be home! 🙂
