Tikim10: Eat Fresh Hong Kong Famous Street Food (Banawe, Quezon City)

Hong Kong, as known by many is a shopping mecca but for me its also a food haven. Various cuisines from big restaurants to fast food stalls tastes great; food tripping is actually just around the corner! Whenever I go to Hong Kong, I always make sure that I eat their street food ~ siumai, hotdogs, takoyaki, egg waffles, fresh fruit shakes, and what not! Fret no more, Eat Fresh offers authentic Hong Kong street food in Manila!

As their specialty is Street Food, one might have the impression that you will be eating your stick snacks out in the heat/rains. This is not the case in their Banawe branch because you will be eating you're well missed Hong Kong street food at the comfort of an airconditioned restaurant. ^.^ Their kitchen is placed in front of the restaurant, where a passerby can take out food with no hassle and a customer who will dine in will have the comforts of not eating while standing.

Ordering in Eat Fresh is very tempting because the price is very affordable (student friendly prices)! Seeing those familiar street food names will make you feel you want to try them all! Evan and I, ordered the following for starters: Fried Stuffed Tofu, Fish Balls dipped in curry, and Fish Tofu dipped in curry.

You will have the choice of having your street food fried, dipped in curry (to add spice), or both. I like spicy food so I dipped mine in curry sauce. If you are not that adventurous, you can still opt for the traditional soy sauce with chili garlic or none!

For those who want to try Hong Kong dimsum, Eat Fresh also serves 5 varieties of dimsum all at P48.00 only--- Pork Siomai, Taosi Spareribs, Chicken Feet, Raddish Cake, and Kuchay Dumplings.

For our main course, we definitely wanted to try the claypot rice meal. I like this very much because food is served warm. The claypot rice comes with a special sweet sauce that makes the meal feel like its a big fried rice. The serving is quite generous for one person, it will surely make you feel full!

Lastly for our drinks and dessert, we went for the pancake balls (called kai-tan-zai or egg waflfles in Hong Kong), almond shake, and milk tea (nai-cha in Hong Kong). The pancake balls took a while to cook but it is all good --- it was a favorite!
