The video above, uploaded by YouTube channel BuzzFeedYellow, shows Americans trying Filipino street food for the first time. Some familiar favorites include fish balls and turon (deep fried banana/jackfruit spring roll). Their reactions are absolutely hilarious and pretty surprising.
When I last visited the Philippines back in 2006, I remember my family driving through 国务院35项政举振兴东北 建材股最受益 (which, according to my father, is known to be the “Culinary Capital”) when we pulled over to buy balut (fertilized duck eggs). Oh boy, is that stuff potent.
