    Skewered pig intestines are also called isaw!

    The intestines are turned inside out several times while cleaning before putting it on sticks and grilling. Isaw is best dipped in spicy vinegar.

    The other balls are squid balls.

    Balls can be *really* confusing, I know.

    1. Pig and chicken blood.
    2. Chocolate!
    3. The blood of my enemies.

    That’s dried pig and chicken blood, also known as “betamax.”

    It resembles the shape and color of the popular videocassette magnetic tape, Betamax, hence the name. Ask your lolo about it.

  5. 5. What do you call these elongated thingamajigs?

    1. Kiat-kiat
    2. Pukiam
    3. Kikiam

    More like “kikYUM!”

    Kikiam is made of pork, shrimp, and vegetables like carrots and onions so it’s pretty much the grubby version of lumpia. It is also commonly used as a topping for soup dishes like lomi.

    Those are the ears!

    They’re also called “walkmans.” As in the Jurrasic version of the iPod.

    It’s the one on the left!

    The others are called tukneneng — boiled, then fried duck eggs. They’re relatively bigger than kwek-kwek.

  8. 8. The white stuff in taho is made of what?

    1. Milk
    2. Silken tofu
    3. Sweetened jelly

    They’re made of silken tofu!

    The tofu is mixed with caramelized brown sugar and sago pearls. Taho is best enjoyed as breakfast but see if you can resist not eating it any time of the day.

    1. Nilupak
    2. Binatog
    3. Pantog

    That’s binatog.

    Mature, white corn is soaked and boiled until it’s sticky then topped with heaps of coconut and sugar/salt.

  10. 10. An ideal balut should be how many days old?

    1. 17
    2. 18
    3. 19

    *starts singing Frank Sinatra’s “17”*

    At day 17, the chick in the balut doesn’t have feathers yet and still has a relatively soft beak so it’s, uhm, easier to eat, I guess?

  11. 11. And what do you call this distant relative of balut?

    1. Balut sa puti
    2. Penoy
    3. Balot

    It’s penoy! You know, like “Pinoy” hehehe.

    Like balut, they’re also fertilized duck eggs but ones that failed to develop an embryo upon incubation. They’re pretty much the black sheep of the fertilized duck egg family. :’(

  12. 12. Which of these is “proven”?

    To the (one on the) left, to the left!

    You know chicken gizzard, right? So there’s another gland beside it called proventriculus which is the main ingredient for this street food. Get it? Proven = Proventriculus? Oh, and it’s also *proven* to taste very good. Lololol.

  13. 13. What do you call these pink little cups of heaven?

    1. Sorbetes
    2. Iskrambol
    3. Shaved ice

    Get it? Like “scramble”?

    It’s a slushy made out of frozen condensed milk and is probably Dolores Umbridge’s favorite snack.

  14. 14. This kind of Filipino ice cream is locally known as…

    How Many Of These Filipino Snacks Can You Name

    instagram.com

    1. …ice drop.
    2. …dirty ice cream.
    3. No such thing! Ice cream is ice cream.

    *starts singing Christina Aguilera’s “Dirrty”*

    But it’s really not dirty! It’s only called as such because it is sold by vendors on the streets and it doesn’t look like the regular ~expensive~ ice cream.

  15. 15. What are these colorful things made of?

    1. Milk, sugar, and preferred flavoring (usually in-season fruits)
    2. Milk and food coloring.
    3. Unicorn poop, obvs.

    They are made from #LEGIT fruits and flavors!

    The mixture of milk, sugar, and juice/chunks of fruits are funnelled into a narrow plastic bag before freezing. These iced candies are most popular during the summer.
