Chowking Has a Secret Food Hack for Their Halo-Halo!


One of the best ways to enjoy this scorching summer is with halo-halo. And one of our favorites is Chowking’s, which has overflowing ingredients on top of a bed of crushed ice, and topped with a decadent scoop of creamy ube ice cream. Just thinking about it while writing this on a sunny afternoon makes me want to go to the nearest branch and order.

It’s already good as is, but there are times when I just want more, more, and more! We recently discovered a food hack to upgrade their halo-halo: you can have as many scoops as you want. I swear, the cashier told me about how someone in Tarlac got 19 scoops. Grabe sa apaw!

And you can do this by adding only P10 per scoop!

So what does a halo-halo loving person do with this kind of information? Well, I gathered a team to see how many scoops we can get.

Watch it below:

The video starts innocently enough. We got to record the crew make the base halo-halo, which has 14 delicious ingredients, like langka, ube, banana, and my favorite: a healthy serving of leche flan. Then we decided to take it up a notch by adding one more scoop.

And then another one.

And then another one.

Until we ended up with 10 scoops for our greedy hands.

All this, for the base price of P50. What a wonderful way to spend the summer!
