Before the pandemic started, it’s very easy to buy street food because you’ll definitely see a street food cart on almost every street corner you’ll pass by. Syempre we have a favorite vendor at talagang dinadayo pa namin sya. It’s so much fun bonding with the family on different kinds of pica-pica — and it’s very affordable too.
But because we are in a pandemic, we had to stay home and cook at home to keep our family safe. Good thing there’s Mekeni Bayani Product Line — offering squid balls, chicken balls, kikiam, siomai, siopa, and lumpiang shanghai. We can now bring home these affordable street food in packs, cook it, and enjoy it with our family in the comforts of our home.
I personally love the sweet Minipaos and the Lumpiang Shanghai. Ykaie loves squid balls and kikiam. And Twinkle loves the siomai.
