One of the food that I missed in Manila is the Halo-Halo of Razon's of Guagua. This dessert is not your usual halo-halo (mixed beans and fruits). The taste is different but it's made up of simple ingredients. It has sun-ripened banana (saging na saba), shredded macapuno, and leche-flan (egg and milk custard) with dayap rind combined with fine shaved ice and creamy milk. Made up of simple ingredients yet so tasty and delicious. You can't say no to a next round for sure. And this will only cost you around Php60.00 or SGD2.00 - 2.50.
Razon's Halo-Halo and ensaymada - photo taken last December 2009
I got a first taste of this sometime 2004 in Robinson's Ermita. And even when I was pregnant I couldn't resist to have a taste of this food. I am drooling while stating a description about this food. I miss this totally. And so when we had our vacation last 2009, husband and I visited their branch at Robinson's Ermita and in SM Mall of Asia and ate two glasses of their halo-halo. Convince? Not yet? If you happen to visit Manila, don't hesitate to visit one of their branch. Surely you'll going to like it. Click here for the list of their branches around Metro Manila and it's nearby provinces. Oh by the way this nice to go with their cheesy ensaymada.
Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.
