Halo Halo


Teaching in China has the great benefit of long holidays and many nearby places to choose from. One of my travels during spring holidays was to the Philippines. I know the locals there are super proud of their food, but I just wasn’t blown away by it. One dish I loved though was a dessert called “halo halo”.

In essence it’s an ice-cream sundae with lots of added goodies. Some of those additions are were quite foreign to me, such as corn, purple yam ice-cream and some plantains. I thought the dish was amazing, especially in the beautiful surroundings of Spanish Vigan. On their own I might not have enjoyed the purple yam or corn, but mixed together it all worked quite well.

P.S. remember you can still vote for which dish I will try on my next holiday to Poland.
