Halo-halo is the perfect Pinoy cooler during summer. Most Filipino restaurants have their own version, from the affordable ones in fastfood such as Chowking and to the most expensive like The Peninsula Manila’s halo-halo. My personal favorite is Razon’s halo-halo, I like my halo-halo simple, not too many ingredients and with a generous amount of milk. Last Sunday, Jeff was craving for halo-halo but there’s no Razon’s near our place. Then I suddenly remembered an episode at Rated K featuring Kabigting’s Halo-halo in Banawe.
It’s easy to spot Kabigting’s Halo-halo in Banawe, it’s just beside Cake2Go and near TonTon Massage. The place is just small with just a 20-25 seating capacity.
I also ordered their Palabok, nothing special with this and I find it weird that the sauce is reddish.
Meanwhile, back to my halo-halo. Kabigting’s Halo-halo is also simple: macapuno, banana, beans, cream of corn and… are you ready for this? PASTILLAS made from carabao’s milk. Given the main ingredients, expect Kabigting’s halo-halo to be in the sweet side.
I like the generous amount of ingredients added with copious slush of milk in finely shaved ice. I love the pastillas, it’s an ingredient unique to Kabigting’s. No wonder Kabigting’s is included in the list of best halo-halo to try here in the Philippines.
Do you have a favorite place that serves halo-halo? What’s your favorite ingredient in your halo-halo?
