When In Manila temperatures tend to rise up to 33 degrees celcius, great thing we got a Sooo Pinoy way to beat the heat. We Filipinos love cold treats, the buko pandan and the halo-halo are some of the most sought after. Now we tour Quezon City for some of the well known food places that offers these desserts.
Nathaniel’s is a famous pasalubong shop, they offer a lot of different Filipino sweets (kakanins) but what they really are famous for is their buko pandan. We were offered a few tubs of their delicious buko pandan tasting. I must say that it is crazy delicious, it is not cheap though since it costs 450 pesos a gallon. All in all if you want to satisfy your buko pandan cravings, check out Nathaniel’s.
Next up! Halo-halo from Kabigting’s. Their halo halo is different since it has a Kapampangan origin, how is it different you say? Well, it only has three main ingredients. Pastillas, sweet corn and beans, although there are only three ingredients the halo-halo actually taste good, on top of that they use carabao’s milk. 60 a glass is quite a reasonable price to try this unique halo-halo.
So next time When In Manila, don’t forget to check out Nathaniels buko pandan and Kabigting’s halo-halo, for some cool desserts to beat the heat.
