Food Court - SM City North Edsa
North Avenue cor EDSA, Quezon City
03 July 2009
It was still quite early - we transferred to SM City North Edsa around 6PM, and knowing the fireworks would start in an hour, we decided to eat first, so we can go home right after the fireworks. We were all on a budget, so we just walked to the food court of the mall, and seeing that there is the Binalot kiosk, we just went there to taste their foods.
If you recall a previous post I created, my sister and I went to eat at a certain "Binalot" food place, which turned out to be not the Binalot that we hoped for. Well, this one was the real thing... and I for one got excited that I can finally taste their foods.
I wasn't able to get a good shot of the kiosk itself; I admit, even if I have eaten to quite a few food places now, I still get a little apprehensive in taking pictures. This was the only thing I got - a shot of the counter with the list of foods they were offering.
What I liked about their menu was that they really named their foods quite uniquely. They have the "Tapa Rap Sarap," "Pride Tilapia" - which actually was fried, "Sisig na Makisig", and "Bistek Walastik" among others.
Still, given the fact that we didn't have much to spend, we just went for something very affordable:
Tocidobo (P70). A few slices of pork tocino, a cup of adobo rice, 1 sunny side up egg, and a glass of iced tea. Very, very affordable! Sorry for the not so good picture... I really didn't know why I didn't take different shots, but then again I loved my food. The adobo rice was so delicious (a good mix of soy sauce and vinegar), and the tocino was so tender! The whole combination just worked really good!
Anytime Inihaw na Baboy with Canton (P120). The one without the pancit canton was P90, my sister opted to add the pancit to her meal just to add some flavor. Originally, this was served with 1 salted egg, but they already ran out of stock, so sister just went with the sunny side up egg. I gave this one a taste, and it was great as well.
I forgot what Halie had that time, but anyway, after eating their food, I can now really say that Binalot's foods are really, really great. With the affordable prices, I surely felt I got my money's worth. I sure hope a Binalot branch would open at SM Fairview, so that whenever I have a craving for some good Filipino foods, I can just eat there. Sadly, though SM North Edsa was considered not far from my place, it was also not near. :)
