Pinoy Street Food: Calamari

>> Saturday, August 1, 2009

calamari (calamares) - P3.00/each

One of the most common street food in the Philippines these days is the calamari or more commonly tagged as calamares, you can see it every nook and corner of the metro, just like the more popular variety of street foods, fishballs and co. If you happen to pass by a street peddler, you will be instantly drawn to its enticing smell, bad for me though, as I am always craving but I rarely gave in, you see, I'm allergic to squids, of all the allergies that I might have, that's what I get *sigh*.

Anyway, last Friday, was one of those times that I caved in, I asked hubby to buy a few pieces and from those I hungrily ate two squid rings, I was in heaven up until I feel the pain down in my stomach and saw the red blotches up in my arms *grins*. At least, I had a few happy moments *lol*.

I LOVE! :) And the photo gave justice to the Calamares. LOL. Ooooh I know. Allergies suck. I am allergic to chicken and eggs now. I get red spots all over my legs when I eat too much. I try to moderate them but when I start eating, I just can't stop. :))

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*.
