Digman Halo-Halo in Bacoor Cavite: Judged by Mommies and Kids
HOORAY!!!! Tapos na din ang isang taon sa school… Mahaba pa ang lalakbayin namin ni Ren pero wow lang talaga… sa bigat ng curriculum ng Grade 1 sa panahon ngayon feeling ko tapos na kami ng Grade 4 hahaha
After Ren’s final exams last Friday, I asked my co-parents to go for a food trip and try the famous Digman Halo-Halo in Bacoor Cavite. I believe that we all need a break from school and this is one of the things that we can do to unwind without breaking the bank 🙂
Digman in Bacoor is quite far from our place here in Molino Cavite. But since we were curious and we want to remove it from our bucket list (naks pang bucket list talaga ang Digman?!) we braved the heat and commuted to Digman that afternoon.
According to the people we’ve asked prior to the planned food trip, there are 2 restaurants at Brgy. Digman that claims that they serve the Original Digman Halo-Halo. According to our source the original Digman Halo-Halo was served at the restaurant with a statue of the Sto.Nino inside, so mega hanap naman kami ng rebulto pagpunta don.
The Digman Halo-Halo is located at Barangay Digman, Bacoor City, Cavite and is just a few meters away from Bacoor City Hall.
It was lunch time when we arrived and the kids were quite hungry, so we ordered food first. Most of us ordered Tapsilog and one mommy tried their spaghetti. Digman’s Tapsilog is one of the best tapsilogs that I have ever tasted (I’m super hungry that I forgot to take a picture of it). For a cost of P60.00 per plate, sobrang sulit na sya. I even prefer their Tapsilog than the famous Rufo’s Tapa (which is too sweet for my taste bud).
After eating our lunch, our dessert came next and that was what we came there for – Digman’s Special Halo-Halo. The only difference of the special halo-halo from the regular variety was the 1 scoop of ice-cream. The special halo-halo cost P75.00 while the regular halo-halo is P65.00.
The ingredients includes sweetened bananas, pinipig, kundol, beans, langka, gulaman, garbanzos, kaong, nata de coco and topped with ube halaya, leche flan and ice cream for the special version. It was served in a tall narrow glass which made it hard for the kids to crush the ice. Ren had to stand up to eat the ice cream, ube and leche flan first before he was able to crush the ice. There’s also a container on the table with sugar in it if you think your halo-halo needs more sugar. I just added 1 scoop because the halo-halo was sweet already. The leche flan is not that creamy too. Maybe that is because they have a large lianera to mold the leche flan that even the egg whites are included when they have cooked it. Ang tigas din ng saging 🙁
The verdict: My co-mommies and I agreed that Digman Halo-Halo is just okay. I commend them for being in the business for more than 50 years already but because there are already a lot of restaurants that serve halo-halo, we felt that Digman Halo-Halo is not the best halo-halo that we have ever tasted. One of Ren’s classmate did not even finish his glass (sayang!).
One mom even said that with the 75 pesos price, she will prefer Mang Inasal’s halo-halo over Digman’s Halo-Halo. I on the other hand (since I haven’t tasted Mang Inasal’s halo-halo yet) prefers Razon’s Halo-Halo.
Before we went home, we also ordered their home made empanada (pasalubong sa mga asawa LOL). For me, their empanada is one of the best empanadas that I have eaten too. It cost P35.00
I think I will go back to Digman, but not for the halo-halo but for their Tapsilog and Empanada 🙂
