If you’re a foodie, you’ve probably heard of the World Street Food Congress (WSFC). If not, you can read about it here.

The WSFC is all about sustainability, opportunities, and preservation. The way they capture attention and interest is through a huge festival showcasing the world’s most popular food culture.

This year, the 5-day festival took place in Manila, the Philippines, on April 20.  Attendees were able to delight themselves with delicious Asian trademarks.

Approximately 25 stalls from different countries such as India, the Philippines, Indonesia, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, and the US shared their goods.

When you come to this event, you’d better come with an empty stomach.


The entrance was free of cost, and the plates were as low as P200 (approximately US$4.30). Not a single person at the festival needed food afterwards.

But as mentioned at the beginning, it wasn’t all about filling our stomachs. On the first and second day of the festival was the WSF Dialogue where authorities and influential food personalities from Asia shared their insights about the street food culture.


Topics such as ‘The government’s role in preserving and delivering street food culture’ and ‘Protecting & preserving street vendor livelihood’ were discussed in order to bring awareness of current situations that could negatively affect the food heritage in the various countries represented.
