Flapjacks' Halo-Halo


It's a rainy summer here in the Philippines. Storm Dante is raging in Bicol as I post this. It's been raining in Mega Manila also the past weeks but not today. It's not as hot though as the previous days.

What's best for summer, even on a rainy summer? Halo-halo. It's a sweet concoction of different fruits, beans, leche flan and purple jam. I was craving for some halo-halo. We drove around and thought of going to UP-Ayala TechnoHub and dine at Razon's. I was talked out of Razon's. We ended up in Flapjacks.

Flapjacks has halo-halo! It has slices of grapes, peaches, ripe mango, corn, pineapple, apple and jelly. I can't remember exactly but it costs around P145. It's expensive. The taste is just fine. I'm looking for the creaminess of Razon's halo-halo. Call it odd but I don't like so many things in my halo-halo. I like it with lots of milk, leche flan and purple jam. Banana and mangoes are fine too. I can do away with beans.

***More shades of spring and summer at Lasang Pinoy, Sundays.

I love halo-halo. Last time I was in Manila, I had the halo-halo from Razon's (Oddly enough my last name is Razon, too. But no relation, I think.) I'm not one to put a lot of toppings on mine too.

Love the presentation. Reminds me of Chinese version of halo-halo. Pero syempre iba ang ingredients natin. YUM!

i also would rather not have beans and munggo in my halo-halo. i've been that way since i was little. i love razon's halo-halo kaya lang sometimes i feel there's too little in it. hee hee. :) and i want a splash of color in my halo-halo. :D

My daughters and I got to try Razon's halo halo at MOA a couple of years ago and they are still talking about it. It really is the best. It's not as pretty or colorful, but oh the flavor is everything! :)
