A list of Filipino street foods or Filipino barbecues so far…
Isaw. That’s what we call them. I-saw. The first syllable is pronounced as E and the second one is pronounced as if you are saying Tao -more like saying E-sao. But that’s when you are in the northern parts of the Philippines. Both in the central and south, they are called either inihaw or inasal.
Before I go on with trivial things (Which is for you my dear regular readers who do not usually comment! I know you’re existing, you just have muted hands.) let’s accomodate our new readers by getting straight to the point. Here’s a list of Filipino street foods or Filipino barbecue I have made in this site so far:
Skewered Chicken Skin Barbecue. Which is one of the first posts I’ve made in this series. The post was made up when I was working on Saturdays in a relatives’ Charcoal Chicken shop, it’s one of those Greek chicken shops here in Australia. Until now I can say that they have the best Charcoal Chicken I’ve ever tasted in Melbourne… or even in Australia. Of course, I cook there! What i’ve noticed though, when they do prepare their Chicken Schnitzels is that throw the chicken skin away after peeling it off from “everyone’s meat” – which is the chiken breast. So I collected them all and made something more wonderful than a bland piece of meat.
I wasn’t suppose to talk there. I was just supposed to give a list of Filipino barbecued street foods. Here’s the rest -
Skewered Pork Barbecue. This is epic and in a 3-part series so don’t forget to click the next post. I’ll shut up now.
Skewered Chicken Liver Barbecue. You gotta know why Liver is the best food in the world.
Skewered Chicken Hearts Barbecue. Exotic, fun-tastic, tick-tocking delight.
Skewered Chicken Gizzard Barbecue. Juxtaposition in a grill.
Skewered Chitterlings Barbecue. This is where Isaw got its name.
So far I have 6 in the list. Read them all. I had fun writing them so you will have fun reading them too. And if you want to request for more please let me know. That is, if I have time to do it. And what I meant by that is, it’s winter from where I am already and making barbecue is next to impossible. Well unless you have something to bribe me with, we can do negotiations.
