I am craving today for a hot binalot, like tapsilog with tomatoes. Nothing compares to this food. Have you eaten the one from Binalot, the restaurant? I a video on youtube about the idea of that business. I think it's cool so I want to share it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZfSD5cFu-I

I like to eat native foods. Especially the SILOG. I like Filipino food. No food could compare this one.

Hi! I'm in the States now and I really miss tapsilog, longsilog, goto, and dinuguan! Filipino restaurants are not common here in Philadelphia, as there are also very few Filipinos here. Whenever I visit New York or Washington DC, I could get a taste of some of the Filipino dishes but they are not as good as what I could get from the Philippines because I think some restaurants there are trying to suit the food to the American palate for a wider market. Happy myLotting!

I have eaten a number of meals in the menu from binalot. Relatively their price there is expensive. Or maybe I'm just frugal.

Oh, I prefer fastfoods over native fod chains too at times, you're right, they could be expensive if you'll compare them to McDo and Jollibee.

Yes, I would once in a while eat meals in Binalot. I just don't like their steamed rice, it's too soggy that you can no longer recognize the taste of rice. I love their arroz caldo though and the tokwa't baboy.

Oh really, too bad they make poor steamed rice.

I haven't eaten one yet but after seeing the video, I wanted to. Their concept is great. It promotes Filipino culture and adds income to banana leaf farmers. We still use banana leaves to wrap food here in our small town. I guess it's part of our culture and it adds to the flavor of the food.
