Deep fried baga and litid ng baka..
The best street dishes from the top culinary centers in Asia -- and where to find them
By Lina Goldberg, CNNGO
Manila is a city filled with street-food options. Most vendors are mobile and can be found walking up and down Manila's busy streets, crying out their specialties. It all makes for a delicious, if fattening, affair. Whenever possible, foods are deep-fried, which makes them that much more mouth-watering and, as a bonus, kills germs.
Cold drinks and sweet desserts are also popular snacks in Manila's tropical heat. Wherever you are heading in Manila, it's worth stopping for a few minutes and sampling the cuisine of the streets.
10. Fish balls
These small, white balls of minced fish are sold by roving vendors pushing fry carts. When an order is placed, the fish balls are deep-fried and served on skewers with a variety of dipping sauces: a spicy vinegar-based sauce, a sweet banana ketchup and a sweet-and-sour option with hot chilies.

The food is one of the most enjoyable things about the Asian continent. But do you know where to find its best street dishes?
Now you do. Weíve put together a collection of the best examples of street food from 10 of the greatest food cities in Asia, and also made some handy maps to show exactly where to get them.
While the nature of mobile street carts and movable market stalls means pinpointing every dish isnít possible, we have shown which roads in each city are more than likely to have someone selling each food.
9. Banana cue
This simple yet popular street snack of a deep-fried banana coated in caramelized brown sugar can be found all over Manila. The name comes from combining the words banana and barbecue. Although it's not actually grilled, it's served and eaten on a skewer -- and in the Philippines, almost anything that's served on a skewer is called barbecue.

kwek kwek, fishball, chichaw, calamares, isaw
8. Sago't gulaman
The best way to deal with the heat in Manila is with a big icy glass of sago't gulaman. The drink combines sago, similar to giant tapioca pearls, with caramelized sugar water (sometimes flavored with pandan leaves) and gelatinous red gulaman, or agar jelly. Although it's a beverage, the sago and gulaman offer the imbiber a mouthful of chewy goodness.
