This is, to my reckoning, the Philippines’ most widely recognised dessert (thanks to ChowKing branches all over the world). This, my friends, is called halo-halo. ‘Halo’ in Tagalog means ‘mix’ so basically halo-halo means something like…a mixture? Wow I am bad at this. Erm so anyways, …
Would you look at that, I just gave you a recipe. Anyways, halo-halo is similar to Malaysia’s ais kacang, Indonesia’s es cendol, Korea’s patbingsu, Japan’s kakigori and Vietnam’s che sam bo luong. Anyways, you eat halo-halo by “halo-ing” all the ingredients. Just…get in there and mix everything together. But the way I eat it is first I eat the flan, then I mix everything together BUT the ice cream. That’s how I roll.
Not really. Sam bo luong is the sea weed & lotus seed mixed drink. Halo-halo is more similar to che ba mau, which contains mung bean, kidney bean, jelly, shaved ice, and coconut milk.
