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

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 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.
