Weekend gluttony! But all photos below are eaten by more than 5 individuals so don't point fingers at me about wastage...all food below are finished up!

We went to the Trinoma mall and it was packed with people, people shop like they're all MILLIONAIRES! lol I wish I can do that too but we went to Trinoma to eat!

A lot of people have been raving about the Sizzlin' Pepper Steak and this is the season to taste their sizzlin' plates. Let's see if it does sizzle my 5 sensory nerves! :P

After full lunch, brother who came back for the Christmas holidays, is craving for Halo-Halo. What is a Halo-Halo?

Halo-halo (from "halo" = mix) is a favorite Filipino dessert or snack. It is basically a mixture of sweet preserved beans(red beans, chick peas), coconut meat (macapuno), jackfruit (langka), pounded dried rice (pinipig), sweet yam (ube), cream flan (leche flan), shreds of sweetened plantain (saba), filled with crushed ice, milk (or coconut milk) and topped with ice cream. The halo-halo basically is sweet, creamy, and a filling dessert. (source: here)

One of the best place to eat Halo-Halo is called Iceberg. Iceberg started with so many branches in the Philippines, but they closed down most of them. After a couple of years, they were able to add up to their menu and serve not only Halo-Halo but dishes and ice cream sundaes. Variety is a key if you plan to open any food chain here in the Philippines. (I guess same with other countries)

Hubby and I are still full from the lunch
We decided to share a Strawberry Shake

Php118.00 (approx $2.50)

Super Halo-Halo Regular halo-halo ingredients plus scoops of ice cream!

Php94.00 (approx $2.00)

Mango Con Hielo Mango ice cream with real mangoes with milk and crushed ice Php110.00 (approx $2.30)

Strawberry Mango Con Hielo Real Mangoes and Strawberries plus Strawberry Ice cream on top of crushed ice with milk Php125.00 (approx 2.70)

If you plan to visit the Philippines, definitely have yourself a Halo-halo! A hot sizzlin' plate dish is perfect for our friends who are cold at the moment, Cold dessert like Halo-halo are perfect for our friends who are in a tropical country like us :) What are you eating at the moment? Smile and stay pretty!
