The halo-halo of Razon's of Guagua in Karama, Dubai.

DUBAI – I discovered Razon’s of Guagua a long time ago in the Philippines, with the insistence of my sister and aunts who said their halo-halo was simply mind-blowing.
I thought, ‘What’s mind-blowing about a pale-looking halo-halo?’ But I did try it and it pleasantly surprised me. I have been a fan ever since.
So imagine my delight when I learned that Razon’s of Guagua was opening its first international branch in Dubai.
I’ve been to the restaurant in Karama at least six times since they opened this year and I always order the halo-halo and the pancit luglug for snacks, although I’ve also tried some of their main dishes. I am glad that the halo-halo tastes exactly like how I remembered this classic served at Razon’s in the Philippines.
They’ve surely put some kind of amazing magic in this sweet concoction, because the halo-halo tastes divine even though it’s only made up of three main ingredients: macapuno, banana and leche flan. It works for me because I hate beans in my halo-halo.
For Dh22, I’d gladly give up my cup of Starbucks for this taste of home. JMYDS/Expat Media
