The halo-halo, which literally means mix-mix, is a popular Filipino dessert made with shaved ice, evaporated milk, and various key ingredients. Traditionally, halo-halo is served with leche flan (creme caramel), boiled kidney beans, sweet potatoes, nata de coco, tapioca, macapuno, langka, and gulaman all mixed together (hence the name).

It’s usually topped with ube flavoured ice cream. It may look like just a hodgepodge of ingredients lumped together – but for those of you who haven’t tried it, the halo-halo is always an odd yet pleasant surprise. Just ask Bourdain who had this to say about the sweet summer treat.

“Dig deep and you hit delicious stratas of red beans, white beans, and chickpeas, cubes of red and green jello, young white coconut, shaved ice, and is that flan? It makes no goddamn sense at all. I love it.”
