What Makes It so masarap (delicious)?
If you haven’t tried Kabigting’s Halo-Halo yet, you should try it now so you’ll understand what everybody is talking about.
Unlike the typical halo-halo that have numerous ingredients, Kabigting’s took a minimalist turn. With only mashed bean, pastillas (carabao milk pastillas) cream corn, evaporated milk and ice – this halo-halo has less sahog (ingredients) but it is so creamy and tasty. And for me, it simply is the best.
Erwan Heussaff chose Kabigting’s as the best halo-halo. Check out his video here: The Best Halo Halo (Halo Halo History)
Now, you can find several Kabigting’s branches, not only in Pampanga but also in Metro Manila. They have branches in Quezon City and Marikina.
Like numerous of our dishes that have foreign influences or origins, this popular Filipino summer dessert has its story too – it is said to be of Japanese origin. Ambeth Ocampo wrote in Inquirer that halo-halo is an indiginized version of the Japanese kakigori.
Kakigori was invented way back 11th century, when Japanese aristocrats would saved ice during the winter season; shaved and served them during summer with sweet syrup.
