  • Halo-Halo

    I've never tried this but halo-halo, a desert dish from the Philippines, must be the weirdest I've ever seen.

              How does it relate to Filipino American Culture?

              This Filipino American Dessert originates from the Philippines and is quite popular as a summer treat during the hot months of March through June. Usually served in a clear, tall glass so that most of the ingredients are shown for its consumer, the treat is a great way to ease the heat and satisfy one’s sweet tooth because of the variety of its different ingredients.
              Halo-halo means mix mix in Tagalog, the main language spoken in the Philippines and the word mix can be used to describe Filipino culture itself. The eclectic diversity of the ingredients that the halo-halo possess is a great symbol of how deep they represent each facet of the Philippine culture. For example, the different fruits that the dessert contains symbolize the Asian influence and the ice cream on top embodies the Western ingredient in the dish. The milk and shaved ice blending and melting to combine with the aforementioned ingredients make it a great mixture of cultures through food.

              Filipino American Culture itself is a great mix of different influences from the mother country’s diverse origins of Chinese, Malay and Aboriginal ancestry plus the Spanish and American colonizations and their impacts on everyday life created facets of life such as foods such as the Halo-halo.

                          Hopefully you have an Asian market like Ranch 99 or Seafood City or something... if not, here is a link where you can buy it online:
