Halo halo: Philippino sweet relief

Standard

Asian desserts aren’t exactly world famous but halo halo is serious fun.

Halo halo at Food Trip

Like many sweet treats in South East Asia the Philippino dish is based on shaved ice, condensed milk and a variety of colourful toppings such as purple yam, sweetcorn, beans and jelly. If you’re lucky you might even get some fresh fruit. It doesn’t beat Malaysia’s beautiful chendul which has lashings of coconut milk too (in my opinion all desserts should involve coconut) but it still provides a bowlful of icy refreshing sugary goodness. I ate this one on a crazy hot afternoon in Coron, Palawan at Food Trip on the main square.
