Simply Divine

I love halo-halo's, especially the Buko Halos served in Jo's Chicken Inato in Cagayan de Oro City. But, when I tried Razon's of Guagua Pampanga, I fell in love with their version.

Truly, this is one of the most simple pleasures on the face of the earth. Which is ironic really for a halo-halo, because as it's name implies... a halo-halo is a mixture of different ingredients. Razon's Halo-halo on the other hand, is composed of only a handful of ingredients, namely- bananas, macapuno, milk, ice and leche flan.

The saba ( plantain) bananas are cooked in sugar syrup until it becomes soft and sweet. The macapuno, I believe, is also cooked in sugar syrup, which results in velvety bits of macapuno, a great contrast to the ice and bananas.

Really, nothing is quite like it.

so true! Nothing comes close to Razon's take on the halo-halo :) the taste is so addicting and fascinating, to think the number of ingredients doesn't even come close to the original recipe. Ken and I discovered this two years ago...and I think I need to "rediscover" it tomorrow haha. P.S. Congratulations on your new blog. You got a fellow foodie in me :)
