Pinoy Street Foods: Boche, Valencia, Turon

>> Sunday, July 12, 2009

boche, valencia, turon in a bilao (winnowing basket)

turon (mongo) for hubby, valencia (banana) for me, and boche just in case we have the urge to eat more - all cost P5.00 a piece.

One of my favorite street peddler in our block is the manang (woman) who sells boche, valencia and turon. She roam around with a winnowing basket full of these treats shouting boche... valencia... in her loudest and most alluring tone. One can be sure to hear and see her an hour or so after lunch as she walk around and knock on gates and doors saying, "suki, meryenda na" (suki is a customer of long standing while meryenda is a snack). I just love it!

ako din favorite ko ang turon na may langka pero mas kilala sya valencia dito sa lugar namin peachy -malabon-navotas. na-try mo na ba ang turon ng mommy's? try nyo masarap.

@u8mypinkcookies - boche is just like turon but instead of using a lumpia wrapper, a gelatinous material just like that of kakanin is use. sana naintindihan mo explanation ko *crossing fingers*.

yung turon ng Mommy's nakikita ko sa stall nila in Landmark, mukha ngang masarap!

gusto ko rin ng may langka & dapat daming sugar! :D

@ maggie: so is it like buchi in chinese restos?

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment
(it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm
thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog
blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for inexperienced blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.

About Me

I am a wife to the sweetest person on Earth and a mother to the cutest baby boy in the planet. I love reading literary books but I have an addiction in contemporary/renaissance romance novels. I am a video game aficionado in the truest sense of the word. I love to travel the world, if and only given the opportunity. I don't know how to cook (but I'm slowly learning) so there's a fascination with take-outs and dine-ins. I could go on and on but I guess you had enough *lol*.
