Yahoo! Special Projects


Nothing captures the taste of summer in the Philippines like halo-halo.

This delectable concoction of shaved ice placed over a bed of sweet beans, sago, kaong, macapuno, langka, nata de coco, garbanzos and banana. Pour some milk, top with a slice of leche flan, or a scoop of ice cream, or ube... Whoa, talk about sweet refreshment!

I had the arduous and painstaking task of trying the halo-halo served at some of the most notable and popular restaurants in Metro Manila: Razons of Guagua, The Peninsula Manila and a nearby Chow King.
