Binatog ( fresh corn puff)


boiled corn kernels that are intentionally overcooked so that they are literally bursting out of their skins (also has the result of puffing up of corn), sugar, grated coconut and evaporated milk. salt to taste.

To make, the vendor starts by taking out a clean plastic cup and scooping out some boiled corn, then he adds a little bit of grated coconut and a touch of sugar, tops the cup up with more corn, sprinkles more sugar on top and adds evaporated milk. If you want to eat it immediately he gives you a spoon and you can munch away.

Binatog actually is one of my favorite food on my childhood days and even now. But lately I notice that it's hard to find a Binatog vendors nowadays
