The Bohemian Diet:
Halo-Halo from Digman


A recent trip to Cavite with peers brought me to Barangay Digman in the Municipality of Bacoor. Digman is famous for it's halo-halo, a Pinoy beverage made of shaved ice, milk and a lot of other ingredients like beans,   banana, macapuno, ube, corn, sago, gelatin, leche flan, etc. It has so many solid ingredients and now I'm not sure if halo-halo should be considered a beverage. It's more of a dessert.

Anyway, it is said that Japanese travelers brought the concept of this dessert in pre-war Philippines. Halo-halo is similar to their kakigori dessert and it is in the barangay of Digman that the Pinoy version of kakigori first originated.

A tall glass of halo halo in The Original Digman Halo-Halo is PhP 55. You can order a customized halo-halo if you don't like the other ingredients like the beans, if you have uric acid problems like my friend hehe.
