Binu’tong for a Sunday Weekend Breakfast

One of the many Bicolano native delicacies is BINU’TONG, usually available either at the marketplace or near a church (specifically at the Penafrancia Shrine). It is made of glutinous rice, coconut cream, some salt and wrapped in banana leaves. “Maliputok and masiramon” (“creamy and delicious”) when cooked, it is perfect paired with either hot choco, coffee or dried fried fish.

The best way to eat binu’tong is by removing the string that ties the banana leaves together, open it to reveal the sticky-rice-drenched-with-coconut-cream, and then sprinkle a bit of sugar on top.

I dont exactly know how to make binu’tong. But I do enjoy eating it.
