#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:

Don’t forget your spicy vinegar and sweet & spicy brown sauce. So what are you waiting for, go to your suking manong and manang, ate and kuya and make tusok!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Excellent blog and fantastic style and design.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
