WATCH: Manila Creamery’s Gelato Shakes Are Better Than Yours

Manila Creamery founders Paolo Reyes and Jason Go battle it out in a great holiday-themed Gelato Shake Challenge!


At any given day of the year in Manila, it is completely acceptable to seek retreat from the heat of the streets. You might find yourself seeking said retreat in UP Town Center—Manila Creamery's newest home, where owners Jason Go and Paolo Reyes make it a point to feed the gelato junkie in every Filipino. 



It's easy to find yourself several spoons deep into Manila Creamery's gelato, with flavors like Mangga't Suman, Leche Flan, Davao Dark Chocolate, and Salted Egg Cheesecake that leave you with oohs and ahhs when you take a first look at their gelato treasure chest that they like to call a freezer. 



Best friends since high school and business partners fresh out of college, Jason and Paolo constantly innovate in the kitchen to put together flavors that give their gelato a distinctly Filipino twist. One of their newest menu additions that we can only describe to be an experience of pure bliss? Their gelato shakes, with flavors like Ube Salted Egg, Cereal Milk, Brazo de Leche, and Matcha Taho.



We pitted these two gelato-makers against each other in a Gelato Shake Challenge (a true test of friendship), where each had to make a Filipino holiday-inspired gelato shake. Who do you think won the challenge? 



Which Filipino-themed gelato shake won the challenge? 

  • Jason's Leche Flan and Mango Gelato Shake
