No, Kuya J
’s is not owned by actor Jericho Rosales, but yes their Halo-halo Espesyal is really special. At first glance, their halo-halo looks like your typical restaurant-grade dessert, but what sets it apart is that its thinly shaved ice is actually made of milk. The sorbet-like consistency of the ice prevents it from melting easily and because it’s made of milk, it doesn’t make your halo-halo watery.
On top of the creamy ice made of milk, you’ll get heaps of ube, macapuno, various fruits, and jellies plus a bit of cornflakes for that added crunch.

’s halo-halo also became a favorite because of their wide array of ingredients. For PhP137.50, you’ll get everything you’ll want in a halo-halo! A special bowl of Max’s halo-halo contains sweet beans, red mongo, macapuno balls, garbanzos, kaong, banana, nata de coco, gulaman and langka. Then they top it off with thinly shaved ice soaked in milk with ube, leche flan, cheese, rice crispies, and a dollop of ice cream.
Another favorite in their menu is their giant halo-halo. Imagine their halo-halo special with the same set of ingredients but five times bigger! The super-sized dessert makes it perfect for sharing with your family and friends to battle the hot weather.
