Travel location: Manila, Philippines
When I went: October 2014
I have had my fair share of the famous halo-halo dessert in Toronto and wanted to eat the real deal in the Philippines. After trying the dessert at several restaurants including Jobilee and ChowKing, my favourite halo-halo was from Razon’s of Guagua, a chain that originated from Pampanga (a province in the Philippines). The first branch in Metro Manila opened on July 8, 2003 inside the food court at Robinson’s Galleria, which is the location that I went to.
Compared to other halo halo’s I have had, it was simple. There were only a few ingredients including macapuno (a special variety of coconut with more jelly-like flesh), milk, shaved ice, and house-made leche flan on top. It was creamy and had the right amount of sweetness for my taste buds.
