#FoodieFriday: Tusok-Tusok

Thank goodness it’s Friday! What better way to cap off the work week than to have it with your family or friends with good food to share. Our #FoodieFriday feature this time is Pinoy street food: Tusok-Tusok.

Tusok-Tusok is cheap and readily available. In fact, these have been the pantawid-gutom of so many Filipinos and Filipinas on the way home or while waiting for the traffic to subside, not to mention being a go-to snack for students and working people alike.

Here are some Tusok-Tusok favorites to whet your appetite:
