although we ended up @ casa mariachi for dinner, the whole reason we went for a westward walk in the 'hood (our hood that is) was for Halo-Halo. i admit that its not everyone's favourite dessert, but it really should be. being from singa and not being able to get ice kacang 2 regularly unless nia nia makes it. lol. i eat halo-halo. which is basically the filipino version. so quick review, we went to JLB where they were crazy nice, but they didn't have any YET (although i know their takeout to be good) b/c it was the first warm weekend, but she promised next week. So we walked down further to the other lil filipino take out/grocery near the travel agency and the thai resto. had amazing fresh halo halo with buko (baby coconut), sweet corn, green pandang jelly, white jackfruit jelly, and homemade taro ice cream on top with coco milk. needless to say great. waiting to try JLB's...update you guys on that next weekend!
