A dollar bill no longer goes as far as it used to, but at Dollar Hits, a Filipino street food truck turned grab-and-go restaurant, it still puts in serious work. Most items here are $1.50 and a meat skewer, which you can finish charring on a couple of charcoal grills set up in the parking lot. The more recognizable meats are great, but it’s the other traditional sticks where things get fun. The grilled isaw, or large pork intestine, is thick and creamy, and the enrile (fried chicken head) and betamax (congealed pig’s blood) are full of flavor, especially after being dunked in the vinegary house barbecue sauce. Once you’ve secured your skewers (plus drinks and other sides), head out to the parking lot where you’ll join large groups of families congregating at one of the best street food parties in town.
