Food Trip: Cobo Part II and Kwek Kwek

Hola! I am back with Part II of my Cobo Bubble Tea and Snow Ice entry. If you haven't seen the first one you may click here. I am also including in today's entry, one of my favorite street foods, the "Kwek Kwek" :) 

Kwek Kwek is quail eggs dumped in some kind of batter and deep fried and looks like this.You'll see more of that later.
...and now back to the Cobo part. I was called by Ms. Shirley once again to do a stand upper. so before heading to the GMA Office, I stopped by Cobo to get something for the people in the office. 

I got this Sky's Special Bubble Burstea Drink which is yoghurt flavored. It was pretty good but I still prefer the Red Tea Lychee thing my mum ordered the other day. This one costs PhP80.00 or US$1.95 for the 16oz drink
and this Kiwi Kick drink for MS. Shirley because she told me once how much she loves Kiwi :)same price for this one, PhP80.00 or US$1.95
.
Here are the toppings they use for the drinks and the snow ice. I personally like the lychee bursting bubbles :) I ordered the Snow Ice, which is the flavored shaved ice, in strawberry, and lychee bursting bubbles for the toppings :) The solo size which is apparently good for 2 poeple costs PhP40.00 or US$0.95
I ordered their Taiwanese chicken that I reeeeeally really love. The taiwanese Chicken comes in different flavors. You can choose among
Salt and Pepper
Mexican Pepper and Salt
Curry Pepper and Salt
and Green Tea Pepper and Salt.

Do not be deceived by the picture. The Chicken is the one in the cardboard tray above and not the one in the styro. The one in the Styro was "sisig"
There was a hungry little girl in the office waiting so I gave the 3 more pieces left of the chicken
Yeah I know I forgot to take a picture of the chicken because it was really good. I only remembered not having taken the picture yet after seeing the box empty. silly me.. But if the chicken skin were a bit crispier, it would've been the award winning chicken for me.This cardboard tray carried 12-15 pieces of chicken..this costs PhP70.00 or  US$1.66
Ms. Shirley loved the Kiwi Kick! :) I tried it too and it was really good. It was even better than the Sky's High drink I ordered for myself.
After chow time, we did a little stand upper thing outside the GMA building
...and voice overs....
...and so with Ms. Shirley and her interviews with the sick patients asking for help...
...and then we were out again looking for food. This time, they wanted me to try something. They know how much I looooooove street food like Kwek Kwek (the one I mentioned above), so they brought me to their favorite place which was only a few meters from the building.
There were plenty of people who came to eat their snack here :) Here's the guy cooking the Kwek Kwek. You see the orange stuff in that rectangular container? That's the batter I mentioned earlier.
Here are the quail eggs that he dumps 1 by 1 in the batter and then he gives them a good frying, deep frying :)
and here's the finished product.... This is really really good with vinegar and chili. 

Ms. Leng and Ms. Maria ate something else. Ms. Leng ate Banana-cue or Fried Caramelized Banana on a stick, and for Ms. Maria she got corn :)

Ms. Shirley got Kwek Kwek too


You can pay before eating or you can pay after, you just have to tell them how many you got :) It was a treat from MS. Shirley so I wasn't exactly able to ask how much but it's really affordable, clean and good :) The location is just a canopy outside of a house so you're sure that the stuff is clean.

that's it for today's entry, hasta luego chicos!

- Mil Besos y Abrazos! :)

    Oh, I was dribbling as I looked at all those lovely photos of the food, and liked the way you wrote about this post. I too love quail eggs, and wish I could be there at that food trip with you. Great.
