Filipinos love to eat. We eat a whole lot and we're very proud of our native cuisine. One of the traditional ways in which we serve our food is called binalot, which literally means, wrapped. That's it. No frills, no fuss. Binalot is simply food wrapped in banana leaves. Binalot isn't practiced so much in the city anymore, what with the advent of more conventional ways of serving and storing food. Some speciality restaurants still offer this though, but they're fewer and farther between.
Binalot comes with the usual Filipino fare like adobo, rice (our staple food) and additional sidings of tomatoes and salted egg. I got the daing na bangus, or milkfish marinated in vinegar and garlic. Binalot is eco friendly too! Plus it saves you time washing and drying the dishes. Once you're done, you're good to go.
