"Don't worry, a lot of people there are standing eating with you so don't be ashamed, you're not alone. But make sure it is about 4pm to 7pm where the peak hour really peaks in. Just feel free to eat and relax alternatively!"

The hungry traveler landed in the country's bangus capital. But aside from bangus, I discovered some interesting do-it-yourself style of eating along the busy and traffic-jammed streets of Dagupan.

Chicken Nuggets served by a food stall along Burgos Street, Dagupan City

I said do it yourself manner of eating because just after you buy the food, the vendor is no longer accountable where you're going to stay.

But of course, if the food isn't that well, you might complain but for your space to eat, never ask for assistance.

You have to look a space for yourself and don't get surprised if everyone around you is standing while handling a food and eating in standing position.

Tokneneng, one-day-old chicken and isaw

Along Burgos Street in Dagupan and just near the fences of the Dagupan City plaza, there are food stalls there and everything can be considered a street food.

Some of the most famous Philippine street foods are here. We have the tokneneng, an egg wrapped by a flour with mixed ingredients then dipped in a sauce.

One-day-old chicken barbecue

There is also the isaw, intestines of chicken griilled to create a chicken intestine barbecue. Speaking of chicken, better try the one-day-old. Yes, that's right. The name of the food is one-day-old because it is in fact a one-day-old chick just escaped from the egg shell.

There you have the one-day-old chicken and there is a technique in eating this. When I bought one, the vendor suddenly stopped me when I was about to eat that and told me to give the food and learned that there is a technique in eating it.

The vendor removed something from that one-day-old chicken and she told me that the removable thing out there tastes bitter. So, that was the technique and I don't know how to do it, lol!

This was really fun. In this part of Dagupan, there are no tables. You have to eat while standing and yeah, it was cool while viewing other people walking into rush and the traffic jam, I think this is another way to relax...

Don't worry, a lot of people there are standing eating with you so don't be ashamed, you're not alone. But make sure it is about 4pm to 7pm where the peak hour really peaks in. Just feel free to eat and relax alternatively!

  15. @FWTMMO
    I can not give the best answer but I think all food could be risky if we don't know how they were cooked. Even fast foods and classy restaurants serve a meal with "ipis" in in "occasional" manner.

    I also know some street vendors who prepare the food well and clean. But here, I am not really sure because I do not know the vendors hahaah.. You'll just know if it is safe or not after eating when you have diarrhea lol!
