The Banana Turon is a typical Filipino dessert street food. Sliced bananas are coated in sugar, then stuffed in a wrapper made from all-purpose flour, salt, and corn starch. Deep-fried till it's lightly golden brown in colour, with a crisp exterior, and a gooey caramelised sweet interior. Served with a rich, sweet, thick dulce de leche / caramel sauce for dipping. So delicious.

Adapted from Spanish cuisine, the Ensaymada is a common pastry throughout the Philippines. Consisting of a brioche bread / muffin shape pastry made with eggs and butter, the Ensaymada is then topped with grated cheese and sugar. Some variations of Ensaymada in Cebu also include cream, either as a topping, or as a stuffing. The extreme popularity of this Filipino pastry means it can be served throughout the day, for breakfast, as a dessert, or as a snack. If consumed as a dessert, Ensaymada can be served with fresh fruits, hot chocolate, or ice cream.

The Rosquillos are Filipino cookies, made from all-purpose flour, eggs, soy bean shortening / cottonseed shortening, sugar, and baking powder. These buttery savoury cookies were originally created by Margarita “Titay” T. Frasco in 1907 in Liloan, Cebu, Central Visayas, Philippines. Their name, which means 'ringlet' in Spanish, was reputedly coined by then President Sergio Osmeña.

When it comes to Sisig, it's all about the sizzle. A noisy, sizzling hot plate, filled with minced pork or minced beef, onions, bell peppers / capsicums, and a little pineapple juice, is mixed at the table, releasing a fragrant aroma. Totally appetizing, this savoury salty sweet dish is best paired with white rice, and eaten when piping hot. Pure comfort food at its best.

Tapa refers to Filipino dried meat, often Beef, Mutton or Venision cured with salt. Tapa Beef is the most common, served fried or grilled, and is typically eaten during breakfast. If Tapa Beef is served with garlic fried rice, fried egg, and a pickled salad, the resulting dish is called 'Tapsilog', which is the Filipino portmanteau of Tapa (Cured Beef), Sinangag (Garlic Fried Rice), and Itlog (Fried Egg).
