Halo-Halo means a mixture of everything that is yummy and of course, edible! It is one of the sweet treats that you can see in almost all of Filipino restaurants. It is eaten during any day of the year, especially if the weather is too hot to contain.
It consists of tapioca, gelatin, milk, yam, sugar and shaved ice. Sometimes they add leche flan or ice cream to make the taste yummier.
In Legazpi, there is one halo-halo shop that is worthy of my praise- Lana’s Halo-Halo. This shop opened even before I was born, and now, they are still alive and kicking! The yummy and rich flavor of this Lana’s treat is really something you should try once you are in Legazpi– trust me, the taste is really great!
What makes this different to other shop? because of their signature taste. I ask you to try them and you will never be disappointed
Moreover, -the ice are shaved to perfection. the ice definitely melts in your mouth without even munching it—unlike other halo-halo’s where the shaved ice are really big that when you munch the ice you can hear your teeth grind— and from this you will be too tired eating the whole halo-halo because your jaw is already tired trying to munch the ice.
If you tried Razon’s in Manila, I think you will also like this, or worse, you will think that Lana’s Halo-Halo is better 🙂
Aside from the mouthwatering treat, you will also love their price! The price is only P35.00 or $0.81 USD. Half the price of other well-known brands.
Well, this shop is not located in a fancy restaurant, the mall or any place you might think that it is located, instead it is in the Legazpi Market Area. Where dry and wet goods are being sold. But don’t worry since the area where the stall of Lana’s is in the food area, so you won’t smell any stink from fish, meat or even vegetables 🙂 It is located in the 1st floor and the back area of the Market.
And also you shouldn’t worry about your stomach’s safety because even since when I was a kid until today, I always eat there and nothing weird happens in my stomach! So I can say it is perfectly clean and safe to it 🙂
THIS IS A MUST TRY!
So, how to get there?
1. Ride a tricycle/ taxi and tell the driver to drop you off in the back portion of the Legazpi Market and then ask where Lana’s Halo-Halo is (the driver might even know where it is) It is famous, so he probably know where it’s located.
1. order the ordinary halo-halo it is much better than the one with ice cream! 🙂 trust me on this! 🙂
