Sizzling Sisig and Halo-Halo : Comfort Food After the Run

The past weeks has been crazy busy due to complex activities both from kids and us parents.  The housekeeping that I skip doing the previous weeks piled up and are now screaming for my attention.  Blogging that coincides with me hosting a giveaway.  Then culminated to a Sunday out of town run on hubby’s birthday.  My of my!

To my dear readers who habitually read my “Sunday Quote and Photograph” post, please forgive me if there was no post last Sunday.  We were on the road by 3:00AM to catch hubby’s half marathon gun start at 4:30AM in Sta. Rosa Laguna (we’re coming from Manila). Probably some of you are wincing why we are doing this to ourselves.  The answer is “we don’t know and we are always like this". LOL.  Let;s just say that this is why this blog is tag with the word "hustle and bustle".

Actually we were so stressed out the whole week that we consider backing out from the run, but… who are we kidding?  We knew better too that we are not the kind who back out on any run. So off we go to Greenfield City in Sta. Rosa, Laguna and killed ourselves and run the 21K and 10K respectively.

We were half dead after the run and need to drive back home to Manila on a freaking hot Sunday and we know there’s just one thing that can rejuvenate our over stressed human body – FOOD!  The fast food chains lining up along the way are unappealing.  We have the same food in mind when we are passing this area, something unique that will definitely sooth our over stressed body.  Alas we spotted one – Binalot!

Binalot restaurants serve Filipino foods (adobo, etc) that are wrapped in banana leaf, served hot and usually paired with tomato, salted (red) eggs, achara, calamansi or other appetizers.  It is also usually served with calamansi and red chili pepper.

We both ordered sizzling pork sisig. It is topped with fresh egg, paired with (very few) strips of camote fries.  The cost is PhP89.00 (US$ 2.12).  The sisig is crunchy enough and nothing to complain about its taste.

Our desert – Halo-Halo!
The price is PhP 49.00 (US$1.17).  I think the price is fair enough for the size.  It’s not too big, just enough for me but not for hubby’s appetite.It has all the key ingredients that you will look for in Halo-Halo. There’s Sago, Gulaman, Banana, Langka, Pinipig, Nata de Coco, Ube Jam (Halaya) and Leche Plan.   The taste is just good enough also but the crushed ice are not fine that makes it not perfectly enjoyable. I still prefer the Halo-Halo from the popular Chinese fast food chain.

Feeling refueled from these two foods and refreshed while drinking our energy drink from the run, I noticed one funny thing.  The restaurant is not the original “Binalot” (the more popular chain) where we usually eat.  This is another chain with the name of the owner prefixed in the word "Binalot", like “Balut’s Binalot”.  Oh boy our hunger and tiredness deceived us LOL! Well you can’t blame us, the foodie concept is almost the same with the original even the menu display.

Anyway at least we’re not crazy hungry anymore and we now have the power to drive back home and check our plan for the day for hubby’s birthday.

Oh yeah, we still have plan after this tiring run. Watch out for more food!
