Boracay is known for its fantastic beach: it's got a soft powdery white sand seashore meeting the blue-green sea on any given clear summer day. It's also fast becoming a place to enjoy good food. Boracay, after all, is an island in the middle of a sea that's teeming with fresh fish and abundant seafood.

However, this isn't the only food that Boracay is known for. Head on down the pathway that connects the three beaches every afternoon, and you will see the "sidewalk" food vendors peddling their version of Boracay's street food.

One of Boracay's street food is the Chori Burger. 

You can miss the "burger" amongst the dried squid, hotdogs, longganisas, isaw, and other street food, all on sticks. That's because the chori burger isn't a "burger" at all. It's the local "chorizo" that's been grilled and then stuffed into a burger bun. It's a unique snack found only on the island.
