Kanto by Tita Flips has been garnering rave reviews from Torontonians for their tasty treats since 2012, and they will be joining us at this year’s Kultura Festival! Kanto will be competing in Kain Kalye, where they will be serving tapsilog, calamansi iced tea, and banana cue to the hungry crowd.
Come and see what all the fuss is about at the Kain Kalye Street Food Competition this August 10th at Artscape Wychwood Barns!
1. Two of your biggest hits are the ukoy and the sisig fries. Do you think that the familiar elements in these street foods (pumpkin/squash for the ukoy and fries with the sisig) helped sell them to Torontonians who have never tried Filipino street food before?
Yes! Some comfort food that Canadians are familiar with (pumpkin and fries) incorporated into and made with traditional Filipino cooking definitely helped ease the transition.
2. What is it about street food that you think makes it so appealing to us Filipinos?
It makes us think of home - the Philippines. Everywhere in the Philippines, there is always food to be found in every street corner.
