I miss binignit!

It has been a part of our Filipino tradition to have Binignit during Holy Week. Unfortunately, since I've lived here in the U.S., the availability of the ingredients for this dish seems scarce. I have actually not thought about binignit but my family back home decided to torture me by posting pictures of what they had for Maundy Thursday, lol! I was drooling over their photos. Then they paired it with my ever-favorite tapioca dessert that my mom made, OMG! I wish I could easily fly back to the Philippines whenever I crave for these food. :(

First time to hear about binignit. Which part of the Philippines are you from? I love tapioca though with coconut milk!

Is binignit biko? hehe I am not sure though, but I always hear this from my parents who are both Bisaya. And I forgot if it's biko or ginataan. hehe.

We call that "ginataang halo halo" in Tagalog and it is scrumptious. I also love the buko pandan, my sister makes that all the time, but I have never tried. Now I want to eat something sweet :)

I am not sure what binignit is but it looks kind of like our ginataan in Bicol. Is it cooked with coconut milk?

We don't practice Holy Week so i didn't know that it is tradition to eat binignit during that time. You can make it probably, you don't have to fly to PI to eat so long as you have all the ingredients needed. :D

Momi Jenn, that binignit looks very delish and drooling right now :-) I miss eating that too especially during Easter :-(
