(CNN Philippines) — Homemade and restaurant-cooked Pinoy food can give one a taste of the local cuisine. But that is only half the story.

To get the whole and more exciting picture, just step out of your homes to the nearest street corner.

There, one can find out just how creative Pinoys when it comes to eating and get a crash course on "Cooking with Nothing Going to Waste 101."

"I have never encountered a food world more complex and diverse yet more of itself," author Raymond Sokolov described Philippine street food in his book Why We Eat What We Eat.

Unique cuisine, of course, requires unique names.

And how did we come up with tokneneng or Betamax to name a few?
