Now for the first time to go out in search of street food because of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), many Filipinos are definitely missing out on their favorite affordable and delicious chibog in every corner.
There is now a video of street food that the netizen misses so much that he said he will eat first when everything is back to normal.
Because food is a big part of the culinary industry of the Philippines, Filipinos have a lot of traditional street foods, and many are still being popular today.
One of the most notable newcomers to the street food dishes in the Philippines is the tres-kwatro or known as fried bopis.
It resembles a Filipino bopis dish where only meat intestines are cooked. But in the street food version, beef and tendon are fried.
Although tres-kwatro is really lardy, they are beef lovers favorite because for the low cost, you can taste the beef, which is further enhanced by dipping in a combination of gourmet, sweet, and salty flavors.
It is not exactly known when Filipinos started cooking fried bopis. But the Filipinos are known for being resourceful and even for the pork, beef, and chicken parts that we would otherwise be able to cook and even turn into street food some like fried bopis.
The tres-kwatro is boiled for a few hours by the lungs and tendon of the cow. They are also sliced into small pieces for easier eating as this street food has a tendency.
The street food tres-kwatro is well-known for the price of each stick.
It was surprisingly good for the lungs and the tendon.
However, since this is popular to many Filipinos, there are some vendors who sell tres-kwatro at a higher price.
Nevertheless, it is still one of the most favored of Filipinos today. Others even add it to the rice as if it were the famous bopis that used to be cooked on a family occasion or sold at a restaurant.
