Well, Hello-Hello, My Delicious Halo-Halo!
Halo-Halo (from Tagalog word, halò, meaning "mix") is a popular Filipino dessert that is a mixture of shaved ice and condensed milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans and fruits, and served in a tall glass or bowl. On this adventure, I had it in a glass bowl…cup…cup bowl? Haha. This hidden restaurant in Manila was the first to serve Halo-halo this way as opposed to the normal tall glasses.
In Manila, you can find almost every fast food or restaurant joint serving up flan. They have this crazy craving for sweets, and I definitely got a taste of that! This particular serving consisted of kidney beans, garbanzos, sugar palm fruit (kaong), coconut sport (macapuno), jackfruit (langkâ), gulaman, sago, nata de coco, sweet potato (kamote), pounded crushed young rice (pinipig), flam, ube, vanilla ice cream and just a whole lotta' deliciousness! YUM!!!
