Featured Filipino Dessert


Halo-halo is a popular cold Filipino dessert which is made from crushed ice, evaporated milk and a concoction of sweetened beans, banana, leche flan (creme caramel), coconut sport strings, kaong (sugar palm fruit), Nata de Coco (coconut gel), ube halaya, jackfruit slices, and topped with Ube (purple yam) ice cream.

The word Halo-halo literally means “mix-mix”, and that is in fact, how you should eat it.  While it’s very tempting to eat the toppings right away, the proper way to eat this dessert is to mix all the ingredients together.

Black by Schibello

Stronger, Bolder Coffee

This exclusive roast from Schibello Caffe is the one to serve when you’re dressed to impress and pulling out all the stops. Politely implying sophistication and style, Exclusive Black Label is, well, perfection in an espresso cup, beginning with the finest quality 100% Arabica beans sourced from Brazil, Colombia, and Papua New Guinea. The Sigri, Maracana, and Rio Claro farms collaborate to offer a beautiful dark blend with a smooth and full body.

Schibello Caffe certainly knows how to seduce its loyal followers with an unforgettable, beautiful blend. The dark berry notes are captivating, and the nutty chocolate flavours will linger long after you’ve savoured the final sip.
