The renowned World Street Food Congress Jamboree invites the foodies to gastronomic soirée at Bonifacio Global City. With more than twenty participating international hawker stalls and more dishes we can possible eat in a day, Our Awesome Planet tried everything so you don’t have to!
1. Hajjah Yetty | Stall No. 3 | Indonesia
Our favorite dish—the smokiness of the meat paired with the intense chilli, kaffir leaves, lime, and freshly crushed tomatoes is Indonesia on a plate. Make Hajjah Yetty your first stop!
2. Donald & Lily | Stall No. 18 | Malaysia
The broth and sambal reminded us of sweet Bagoong paste, which really complemented the seafood toppings.
3. ‘Mar’tabak KO’ta ‘BAR’at | Stall No. 5 | Indonesia
The Green Tea and Nutella Murtabak Markobar are insanely good! Other available toppings are strawberry white chocolate and Kit-Kat.
4. Alhambra Padang Satay | Stall No. 17 | Singapore
An Indian curry flare added to the Peanut sauce gives this dish a different dimension.
5. Ayam Taliwang Bersaudara | Stall No. 4 | Indonesia
The chicken is considered the spiciest in Indonesia. This dish is one of the more fulfilling experiences for chilliheads.
6. Jin Ji Teochew | Stall No. 20 | Singapore
Not only is this dish filling, but it’s one of the more delicious and adventurous street foods at the event.
7. Pepita’s Kitchen | Stall No. 10 | Philippines
Can we just reiterate that this is one of the best Lechon OAP has ever had? The Truffle rice is a beautiful addition to our beloved Lechon.
8. Keng Eng Kee | Stall No. 9 | Singapore
The fried soft-shelled crab with the salted egg yolk dip is an absolute must!
9. 102 Private Kitchen | Stall No. 8 | China
The simplicity of this dish is exactly what made it so memorable and delicious.
10. Churros Locos | Stall No. 23 | USA
The Churros Sundae was our favorite cold treat at the Jamboree. You can’t go wrong with this sinfully sweet dessert!
11. Chey Sua | Stall No. 19 | Singapore
This was almost love at first bite—the cake was not too eggy, it well-salted, and had a melt-in-your mouth texture.
12. Bali Ribs: Chef Yudi | Stall No. 6 | Indonesia
Bali Ribs (P350). Balinese BBQ Ribs, also known as Iga Bakar, is done with sweet Kicap Mains, spices, and Sambal—served with shredded vegetables and pickled radish.
The meat was surprisingly juicy with a unique Balinese marinade that is not sweet. The pickled radish is quite strong, so eat sparingly with your ribs.
13. Nam Bo | Stall No. 2 | Vietnam
The flavors are familiar to the Filipino palate—the banana cake is delicious, delicate, and perfect for summer.
14. Thuloan Phan | Stall No. 1 | Vietnam
The Banh Can was an interesting, chewy texture and quite filling despite its small size. The sweet basil and sauces add a refreshing dimension to the food.
15. Hong Kong Street Old Chun Kee | Stall No: 16 | Singapore
Har Cheong Kai Burger (P300). Fried bagoong (prawn paste) chicken patty drizzed with spicy tangy sauce and topped with salad, with taro fries at the side.
We thought the fried bagoong was a unique and interesting addition to chicken! The patty is cooked just right and the spicy sauce is mild.
