Mang Inasal has been known for their famous Chicken Inasal. We love it especially with the sinful chicken oil, paired with a free bowl of Sinigang (tamarind) soup and unlimited rice. But when it comes to dessert, people are looking for something that they usually love. That’s why there’s Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo Halo.
Pinoy Halo Halo – PHP 53.00 (Small) and PHP 73.00 (Regular)
I liked Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo Halo primarily because the milk that they used was not so sweet but creamy. Additionally, we liked it so much when the ube ice cream melts with the ice and milk. It was such a beautiful marriage of flavors!
The toppings and their different colors were amazing: red beans, leche flan, ube (sweetened purple yam), sago (tapioca), gulaman (gelatin), langka strips and kidney beans.
The toppings that they should improve, however are the following:
- Banana – it seems like it was not the authentic home cooked and sweetened bananas. The color was different and it was not super tender like the bananas that can be found in other halo halo products.
- Ice – the crushed ice tends to stick together as one block of ice which is actually unavoidable but I trust enough that they can still improve this one.
Overall, Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo Halo is indeed one of the desserts that we will rave about during summertime here in the Philippines. The price is definitely OK and worth every peso, that’s why we totally recommend it!
