Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern believes that Filipino food will be “the next big thing” a few years from now. Speaking of bizarre, Filipinos are popular for food mixed with ingredients that might not look pleasing to the eyes but are incredibly satisfying to our taste buds and stomach. And if there’s one unique food Filipinos can’t take away from their lives, it must be the all-time favorite dessert, halo-halo!

In an episode of Parts Unknown on CNN, Anthony Bourdain featured halo-halo (roughly translated to mix together) from a Filipino fast food chain and called it “oddly beautiful.” This colorful and flavorful dessert has earned its reputation mainly because you can put anything with it and it would still taste great. This 2017, it’s time to level up the Filipino frozen treat we all love. Check out these five restaurants that offer halo-halo with a twist!
