Halo-halo, mix-mix and dreaming of summer

  1. You should try the Korean shaved-ice treat! It’s called bingsu. It’s traditionally made with red bean and ice cream and some sort of syrup, but now they make all sorts of flavors like green tea, mango and even cookies and cream! It’s very delicious but to me, nothing beats halo-halo.

    By the way, I stumbled on your blog looking for a lugaw recipe (I’m making some for my sick boyfriend) and it made me feel so nostalgic. I’m a Filipino currently living in South Korea and this article makes me crave for halo-halo and all that good Filipino cooking I used to get at home. So I gotta say I love it.

    1. Hi Faye! Thank you for your comment and for reading!

      I will look for the bingsu here in Chicago… Thanks for the tip! Plenty of Korean restaurants here, and I’m sure someone has bingsu on their menu now!

      I’m so glad to hear your sentiments (and I hope the lugaw can ease your boyfriend’s ills!). Based on what I see in my blog’s stats, I think a lot of Filipinos around the world visit my blog through that post! Next I will be writing about arosep or latu – sea grapes. Stay tuned. 🙂
