Binalot Marikina Grand Opening

binalot marikina_1Last September 13, 2011, DonJuanQuixote invaded Parang Marikina to witness the grand launching of  Binalot Marikina branch (a Filipino fast-food restaurant). Binalot is the most unique Filipino cuisine in town. When you purchase food, they serve it hot and wrapped on banana leaf and brown paper. I remembered I was invited a wedding in the province, on the buffet, the plate we used were make in banana leaves. Filipino tradition, that’s the concept of Binalot and helps to save our Mother Earth, and this was the first time that Adventures of DonJuanQuixote attended a Binalot Store opening.  

Before the store open to public, Binalot Marikina conducted a motorcade started around 10 AM in the morning, routing the entire Parang and near by areas with convoy of guests, media, bloggers and Mang Bina (Binalot mascot), Good thing the weather is wonderful and really perfect for a celebration, after the motorcade, The store was blessed by invited Catholic Priest, followed by ribbon cutting with Mr. Rommel T. Juan, President of Binalot Fiesta Foods, Inc. and Mr. Mamerto Rojas, Franchise Owner of Binalot Parang Marikina Branch., showered many coins and candies after; this is for good luck of the business.

Did you know that Binalot have their own version Panatang Makabayan.  They called it “Panatang Makabinalot”. During the opening, Panatang Makabinalot was recited and balloons were let off to signal the official opening of the branch.

Ok, this was the good part for food blogger, the “tsibugan time” some of their food product presented on the table. There’s tapa, longanisa, barbeque, pork adobo, pancit, salted egg, slice tomatoes, boneless daing na bangus, and of course the ultimate rice. Those foods were blessed by the Priest, And food photography on next. And wallah! we started to taste all this meals.


For me, there’s no foreign country can bet Filipino food. Just like Binalot, a 100% Pinoy Pride and so good for every Juan. Try it and you will see what I’m talking about.
