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.
