Tempura and Kwek Kwek egg from the Philippines
All around the Philippines you will find little carts with large aluminum containers.The long thin strips in the photograph are Tempura. This is basically a mix of white fish in mild spice and flour deep-fried. The Filipino version of fish finger.
It doesn’t taste very fishy, and is actually quite nice as a snack or small meal.
Kwek Kwek Egg
The thing that looks like a little strange glowing orange ball is actually a pre-boiled chicken egg in light crumbs deep-fried. It tastes pretty much like any other boiled egg even with the colored coating.
Both of these are often served together and found at night stands along the side of the road.
Do be careful of the chili vinegar that sometimes gets poured over it (spicy).
Prices here vary but it’s about as cheap as you can go in the Philippines. You usually buy tempura in pieces of 3 or more.
