BINAMBAN is a food made from wild grains mixed with coconut meat and sugar. It is endemic in the town of Lagonoy. What gives this food its unique flavor and taste is the wrapping from a wild leaf called Hagikhik.
A food community from Santa Maria of that particular town manufactures BINAMBAN. One enterprising businessman wanted to commercialize Binamban's manufacture. But then he realized that in doing so - he would teach this simple folks Greed and the commercialization of Binamban would surely lead to its demise.
