It’s my second day in Boracay and as you know, I’m not here to party nor to sunbathe but to embarque on a gastronomic adventure in this island paradise. I felt bloated after a huge continental breakfast in Gasthof, it was sunny and since i need to increase my intake of fibrous food, I headed to Halowich for a fruit dessert overload. Halowich opened only last December of 2007 in Boracay’s D’Mall and I first saw this Halo Halo Bar last January 2008 but never made the time to check it out that’s why I made sure to include it in my food tour itinerary this time around.
What makes this Halo Halo Snack Bar interesting? Well! aside from cold refreshments, they offer a unique menue of snacks like the flying saucer shaped pie filled with beef and vegetables of your choice and of course the must try Halo Halo sandwich where the word “Halowich” is derived from. If you come with your Barkada, try the Family size Halowich Special – a huge Halo Halo in a big bowl for only Php399.00. I ordered their Green Tea Ice (Php140.00) – made up of fresh fruits with green tee syrup and vanilla ice cream on top.
Aside from their ever popular Halo Halo with a twist, they also serve ice cream and fruits such as fresh mango, pineapple, watermelon and banana all perfectly mixed with finely crushed ice, sweet red beans, crispy cornflakes and several flavors of their homemade sherbet. Their sherbet comes in different flavors such as milk, chocolate, lemon, orange, and strawberry.
There’s nothing like enjoying a delectable and refreshing cold Halo Halo in a hot sunny day specially if you are in the sun kissed island of Boracay.
