This Merienda, Atbp Page is my take on popular Filipino snacks, street foods and appetizers and some common food-court favorites.

Most Filipinos I know have a penchant for snacking.

If it's not a sit-down meal that is eaten with rice, it's not considered a meal but rather a snack.

We have an early afternoon and before dinner snack - also an after-dinner and midnight snack.

We practically eat more that 5 times a day - 3 square meals plus a lot of snacking in between.

So what items do we consider as snack food? It could either be sweet or savory.

Sweet, from donuts, cupcakes, bananaque and kamote-q, turon, maruya, to suman and kakanin...

Savory, from lumpia, Ukoy, barbecue, to pizza and sandwiches(Subs).

Funny that what we take as snacks like Pizza and subs are considered meals for lunch or dinner here in the US.
