Some scoops of ice cream are just really, really worth the brain freeze. These ice cream-makers go above and beyond by getting creative with local flavors and ingredients—we spotted leche flan, Bicol express, and calamansi!
1 Leche Flan
Manila Creamery is known for their funky gelato creations, and we’re especially happy about a creamy, dreamy leche flan flavor! Have you tried their mangga’t suman, salted egg cheesecake, and turon flavors yet? Pop into U.P. Town Center for a scoop or two!
2 Calamansi and Candied Pili
Fog City Creamery‘s sweet and tart ice cream has texture from crunchy, buttery pili.
3 Avocado Macchiato
Magnolia’s Best of the Philippines collection of ice cream boasts favorite flavors from different regions of the Philippines. These flavors include kesong puti and macapuno langka, among others.
4 Ube Velvet
Bono Gelato nails this ube ice cream flavor by making it extra smooth and silky!
5 Bicol Express
Sangkap‘s ice cream menu is a dream for adventurous eaters! Would you eat this sweet and spicy coconut milk and chili pepper combo? Sangkap’s other fun Filipino flavors include palitaw, calamansi, and champorado.
