Kikiam Classic

Kikiam is a popular street food in the Philippines. It is a delicious and crispy snack made from ground pork or fish mixed with various ingredients and then wrapped in a casing made of a starchy batter. While the exact origin of kikiam is unknown, it is believed to have originated from Chinese cuisine and has gained a unique Filipino twist over the centuries.

The filling of kikiam typically consists of ground pork, onions, garlic, carrots, soy sauce, and spices. The mixture is thoroughly combined and then rolled into thin and long logs. These logs are then coated with a batter made of starch, flour, and water, giving them their distinctive elongated shape.

Kikiam is usually deep-fried until golden brown and crispy. It is often served with a dipping sauce made from vinegar, soy sauce, and chili. The dish is commonly sold at street stalls, markets, and food carts throughout the Philippines.

Kikiam is beloved for its crunchy texture and savory flavor from the filling. It is a popular choice as street food due to its portability and affordability. Many Filipinos enjoy kikiam as a quick and tasty snack while shopping or as a complement to meals.

Kikiam is just one example of the diverse street food culture in the Philippines, where a variety of dishes and snacks can be found at roadside stalls and food carts. It is a beloved part of the Filipino culinary experience and a must-try for visitors looking to explore the local cuisine.
