Dollar Hits

Although there’s plenty to appreciate about life in 2020, (like legitimately being able to blame your bad personality traits on your Virgo moon), there are a few disadvantages. Namely, the dollar bill no longer goes as far as it used to. This is why Dollar Hits, a Filipino street-food truck turned grab-and-go restaurant, feels like such a revelation. Almost everything here is both $1 and a skewer, and while the more recognizable meats are great, it’s the more traditional sticks where things start to get really 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 Dollar Hits’ special vinegar-based BBQ sauce. Once you’ve secured your skewers, head out to the parking lot where you’ll join large groups of families congregating around the communal grills at one of the best street parties in town.
