Binatog

For this week, I am not going to share something we ate at a food place, but something we bought from the street...



298/365 - Binatog

Food Trip Friday meme is where I post the "eat out" series - given the title "food trip." Well, this one's not really an "eat out" kind of food since we ate it here in the house, but because we didn't cook this, I can consider this an "eat out" food.

We didn't crave for this food, but whenever we hear the bells in the afternoon, we found ourselves saying "Gusto ko ng binatog." (I want binatog). But then, we just let the vendor pass each and every time. One day, mom was about to leave the house, when the binatog vendor passed by and she asked if we wanted some. So out we came with the bowl. =)

For those who don't know, binatog is a snack made out of corn kernels that are boiled for a long time - making the corn puffed. Some say it has evaporated milk in it, too.. but that part I am not so sure. It is served with freshly grated coconut, and foodies have their choice whether they will season the food with salt or sugar. I prefer mine with sugar.

Yum!

Jenn, the Foodie


I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
