Copycat Razon’s Halo Halo
The last time I was in the Philippines was last year but before that it was 2003 and from that time to 2018 a lot has changed specially in term of food that is available, a lot of the traditional stuff was spinned off to make another creation like this Halo Halo. Before 2018 I was just wondering what is this Razon’s Halo Halo and why do people rave about it? So during my last visit I made sure I tried them.
Razon’s Halo Halo is a very popular Kapampangan treat which came into Metro Manila in 2003, the time I left. Same concept as the halo halo but instead of the usual smorgasbord of flavourings the traditional Halo-Halo has Razon’s version only consist of sweetened bananas, macapuno and leche flan but what sets it apart is the finer textured ice that is used, which is similar to the shaved ice you get in Korean Bingsu. I know it’s hard to replicate the texture at home specially if you don’t have the shaved ice maker the next best this is just to use the ice crusher.
- Prepare 3 large glasses and on each glass, add 2 tbsp of macapuno, 3 tbsp of minatamis na saging, 2 tbsp of syrup then top with layer of ice.
- Drizzle a generous amount of evaporated milk then top with leche flan slices. Serve.
