It’s hot! Cool down with Halo-Halo – a delicious Philippine shaved ice dessert. You can get excellent Halo-Halo at Calle Luna – a dessert shop located in Silay City, Negros Occidental or at its second branch in Talisay. We went to check out their halo-halo and we absolutely loved it!
Halo-Halo is a dessert made with shaved Ice, beans, fruits, ube jam, milk and practically anything that you can put in it. It’s as famous as Korean Bingsu (another shaved ice dessert).
We’ve been looking around Bacolod city for a great Halo-Halo place and sadly, we could not find anything good. Fortunately, a friend of ours recommended Calle Luna so off we went to Silay City.
Calle Luna is an open air restaurant that serves several different kinds of Halo halo as well as some Philippine snacks. The place is small and it is decorated with a mural that takes up one entire wall.
A wall hung with a tarpaulin definitely piqued our interest! It’s Calle Luna’s halo-halo menu. They have twelve different flavors of Halo Halo! They look so good – We ordered four of the flavors to try!
The halo-halo at Calle Luna is very eye catching! Since it was a hot summer afternoon, these immediately began to melt so we had to be quick and snap these pictures. We knew immediately that these were high quality desserts just by looking at the glass. You could already see all the fillings and the sauces.
Calle Luna’s Mango de leche is a great, non traditional Halo halo that we recommend everyone should try. It comes with mango ice cream, crushed graham crackers, leche flan (or caramel custard pudding) and plenty of milk and mango.
The Special Halo Halo is the pinnacle of Calle Luna’s halo-halo desserts. This is super good, not even FoodKing halo-halo can top it. Calle Luna’s shaved ice is already very rich and milky for all their halo halo. The ice is shaved so fine, it’s not gritty and coarse like Halo Halo that you would get from a fast food chain.
If you add all the sweet beans, custard pudding, cheese, banana, coconut, coconut jelly, ube jam and more – you get a super duper awesome halo-halo. This is the BEST halo halo we’ve ever tasted. We’ve driven around Bacolod city and we haven’t found anything like Calle Luna’s halo-halo.
If you like Ube, try Calle Luna’s Ube special. It’s Ube jam overload – with cheese! It’s one of our favorite Halo halo at Calle Luna!
Calle Luna is a great place for dessert! Try them at their Silay Branch or at their Talisay Branch on Capitan Sabi street!
