FOR the Lenten season, Binalot has chosen favorite dishes from the Visayas region: Bangus Sinugba, Kinilaw and Laswa. Healthy favorites from the South will be offered at selected Binalot throughout the Lenten Season.
Sinugba means “grilled”, Kilaw means “vinegared” and Laswa means boiled vegetables. The bangus sinugba is filled with chopped onions and tomatoes and then slowly grilled to a nice finish.
Binalot recently celebrated its 18th year in the business and recently signed up a foreign franchise for Dubai, UAE. Binalot was founded by Rommel Juan and his friends in 1996 when they realized there were no real Pinoy options for dining that was fresh and portable using eco-friendly packaging.
Binalot now has 45 branches all over the country, all serving Filipino food favorites in its trademarked wrapper of banana leaves, naturally preserving the food’s freshness.
KINILAW NA ISDA – The freshest fish marinated in Pinoy vinegar and Ilocos onions and garnished with red hot peppers. Perfect for the Lenten season.
LASWA – What could be healthier for body and soul but a fresh boiled vegetable medley of local greens and other Pinoy vegetables called Laswa. BINALOT offers this Visayan favorite to start its Lenten specials.
BANGUS SINUGBA – This national fish is now available stuffed with chopped onions and tomatoes and grilled to a nice finish. Sinugba is the Visayan term for “grilled”. – See more at: http://www.malaya.com.ph/business-news/living/binalot-goes-visayan#sthash.gYIMz4QW.dpuf
