My husband and I were craving for some desserts at a Sunday night. I suggested we try out Little Quiapo's dessert specialty which is their halo-halo. Ever since my husband and I were just dating, it never occur to us to try their halo-halo out even though we often dine there during those days. And so, to make up for the lost opportunities, we decided to go there and just eat their halo-halo.
Apparently, Little Quiapo offers 3 types of halo-halo: regular (Php90), special (Php110) and fiesta (Php120). I ordered their special halo-halo because I'm too shy to order the "fiesta" (hahaha) while my husband ordered their mais con hielo (P97). Yes, they are a bit pricey, but I'd say they are worth it. Unlike Razon's halo-halo, theirs include almost all of the classic halo-halo ingredients you can think of - leche flan, mongo, langka, macapuno, saging na saba, pinipig, and one big scoop of ice cream. My order didn't include ube, gulaman, etc. and my best guess is they're saving it for their "fiesta" halo-halo. The best part is the crushed ice blends in easily when you mix it. It's really delicious and refreshing because the ice cream they used was really flavorful.
Besides halo-halo and mais con hielo, they also offer other desserts like cobblers (banana split, ice cream scoop, etc.) , parfait, shakes, etc. I recommend this place for everyone especially families since LQ also offers food thatt kids will surely enjoy such as french fries, burgers, spaghetti, and more.
My only complaint to this place is they have very small parking area.
