Unwrapping Binalot

All right, so we’re back this week to uncover … ehem, unwrap Binalot, the Baguio branch. =D

Binalot Baguio 2014 sago't gulaman, soda and binalot meal

With the feature blog on Crown Legacy’s in house restaurant left with a question about if Binalot could hold a candle to Reg’s,  the answer …

Binalot Baguio 2014 dining area, first floor

First floor dining area … say it with me, wide opennn spaaaces (or lots of seats)!  (Look, an OCD person‘s nightmare – the sauces and that jar/gusi decor thingy on one table, argghh *tearing my hair out)

It does!  \m/ Okay, it’s doubled up the price, but it sure made up for it in quality.

Binalot Baguio 2014 sawsawan, soup and extra rice

The regular complements to a Filipino meal: Dips and seasoning, soup, and extra rice. \m/

The chilies and the calamansi are all found at the sawsawan/dip station where you could make your kind of sauce be it sour more than salty (like mine =b) or super spicy (like what Race prefers) … and as much as you can consume.

The soup, none of that broth cube nonsense. They serve the broth from the tamarind soup/sinigang on their menu to kick start your meal. It’s so real, simmering for long I presume, that it became thick, almost miso-like in its consistency. ^^,

Did I mention the meals include extra rice, free … for the hungry men out there?

Inihaw na baboy =D

The servings are a bit bigger than the ones served at the student fare counterpart.  Would you believe Race wasn’t able to finish his meal?  (Easy take out – we just rewrapped it all with the banana leaves and the thick brown paper.)

With Race inspired to eat with his hands …  *nomnomnom  No biggie, we’re right beside the hand washing station.

Bistek walastik (“,)

My bistek/beef steak Filipino style wasn’t as soupy as I wanted it to be but it was full of flavor.  Once I tossed it around with the rice, it was one deliciously beefy salted spoonful after another, yeah!

Flyer menu (This is all I was able to get, Baguio eatsplorers. I didn’t want to bring attention to myself standing in front of the counter =b Their menu’s three LCD screens worth with the most expensive meals not going over P200, I think.)

    I don’t know about you guys but the one at Crown Legacy just confirms that the hotel is not avery classy place

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Raff! I agree, Binalot does seem out of place being at Crown Legacy. Although the restaurant is nicely designed (trying to meet up with ‘classy standards’, I guess *hihi). Good news for those on budget and in the vicinity though, another option for them.

      Thank you so much for leaving a comment! Happy eatscapades to you! (“,)

    Please Hansy’s Binalot a try. It’s my favorite Binalot joint here in the city. Located at Rimando Rd. across 7/11
