DJC Halo Halo, Albay
I first visited the Philippines in 2001 staying with my good friend Martin and his Filipina wife Lyn. On one of our trips out we called in at DJC’s place in Tiwi, Albay for a Halo Halo. I dont remember exactly the taste then but i was hooked……. every chance i had to eat a Halo Halo i took but none were as good as that one in Tiwi.
Moving on ten years to 2011…. my second visit to the Philippines and all i wanted was to taste another Halo Halo. It turned out that over the years DJC’s had become popular in and around Albay and had opened branches in Legaspi and Tabaco as well as modernising their flagship branch in Tiwi.
Over the course of the 7 weeks i stayed in Tabaco i think i must have eaten one of DJC’s Halo Halos at least 5 times a week…………
So what makes this Halo Halo so tasty and different from other inferior Halo2??
Well first of all they use coconut juice and not water to make the ice. Then sago,super creamy lecheflan, milk, ube and sweetened banana are added along with pieces of macapuno and gelatin. All this is topped of with some salty grated cheese which creates the perfect taste of savory and sweet in the mouth.
So next time you are in Albay make sure you drop into one of the DJC branches for the best tasting Halo Halo ever.
I have tasted many other Halo Halo in my travels around the Philippines including those offered by Chowking and others and in my opinion none are able to match the quality of DJC halo halo.
**** Update**** May 2013 I have just come across the hashtag #searchforthebesthalohalo on twitter so am tagging this post to it.
