One of my most indulging activities here in El Nido is to eat halo-halo every other day. I try my best not to eat it every day though in fear of becoming diabetic at the end of my one month stay here.
Halo-halo is a Filipino delicacy of assorted sweetened/candied fruits topped with shaved ice and milk. The basic ingredients here include: banana, sweet potato, nata de coco, kaong, pinipig (rice crispies), sago(), gulaman (jelly), langka (jackfruit), ube (yam), garbanzos and white beans.
The more expensive halo-halo in the city contain more ingredients. Sometimes they add corn kernels,mongo, custard and ice cream to make it more sweeter and flavourful.
It’s a bowl of goodness that will definitely shoot up your sugar level to heaven.
And for only P15 here, who could resist such offer.
If you’re a foreign visitor travelling around the Philippines, make sure you try this food. You’ll surely enjoy it.
