The World Street Food Congress convened for the second year in the Philippines. Chefs and culinary influencers from around the world came together for a 2-day conference that celebrated this year's theme: "Re-Imagine Possibilities".
Talks ranged from preserving street food culture to protecting the rights of street vendors and reimagining heritage foods for the younger generation.
This year's conference was made special by a visit from the one and only Anthony Bourdain, who shared his insights on this year's topic and the impact of street food culture in America.
