Getting lost in the mangroves under the angry sun had me craving for a cold cold halo-halo. On the 13-kilometer ride back to Mandaue, I racked my brain for a place that serves one. Nearing my last stop, out the speeding jeepney's window I see Razon's in a blue blur. "Lugar lang!" and hotfooted it to the "pride of Pampanga" (this according to the snackhouse's sign).

No muss, no fuss. One halo-halo and a scoop of strawberry ice cream, please!

From what I could identify from my speed-eating were nangka (jackfruit),  sweetened saba bananas, and macapuno drenched in evaporated milk, and topped off with leche flan. Of course, let's not forget the shaved ice! This halo-halo is a-okay in my book!

Halo-halo craving quenched at:
D'Original Razon's Famous Halo-halo & Special Palabok
Carlos Perez Bldg., AC Cortes Ave., Mandaue City
(032) 239 5052

How this halo-halo craving bore a hole thru Mustachio's pocket:
Halo-halo Php 69
Scoop of ice cream Php 25


  1. What makes their halo2x special is that they use goat's milk. :)
