The binangkal is a round-shaped treat that is made of flour, margarine, sugar, and eggs. It is covered with sesame seeds and deep fried until it has a slightly dark brown color. The local delicacy is crunchy on the outside while having a soft interior. The binangkal is not only limited to Tabuelan since there are also a number of places on the island where this tasty treat is made.
The binangkal is a well-loved snack item that is typically sold by vendors outside schools and offices. They are also sold in some school canteens and ports on the island of Cebu. Aside from the binangkal, Tabuelan also has another delicacy for visitors of the town, the corntik.
You have two options if you want to go to Tabuelan. The first option is getting on a bus or van for hire at the Cebu North Bus Terminal. The second option is getting on a van for hire headed for Tuburan at the Ayala Center Cebu before riding a tricycle or motorcycle for hire to Tabuelan. While the first option brings you directly to Tabuelan, the trip is longer since it passes through the northern part of the island. The second option is shorter since it cuts across the island through the transcentral highway.
