Cebu: #3.2 Razon’s Halo-halo

Following the full meal, my friend brought us to this traditional Filipino Dessert House to try their dessert:
Halo Halo

While waiting for the dessert, around the vicinity this shop below has second hand clothes that come from all over the world ( from funerals or even US and all) that are priced really cheap! At times, you can even find money inside that people forgot to take out.

 Verdict: 7/7 of us will return.
The kids really loved the ice-cream they had to really be at each other’s throats to share it 🙂
Halo Halo, this is the first time I am eating this, and by far I think it resembles our local dessert Chendol to some extent. Between the layers of ice, there are dried jackfruit, banana, gula melaka and other things inside that I am not sure what the name is. On top is like a “creme bulee” equivalent. Very interesting dessert I have eaten thus far.
The Palabok is just a simple type of noodle (reminds me of mee siam/mee rebus to some extent because of the texture of the sauce and the ingredients). The sauce kinda taste abit faint, not starchy as I thought it would be.

If only we had a bigger stomach!!!
