Whenever I want to indulge in ice cream, I go local. Am through with my Ben & Jerry’s phase, right now it’s Sebastian’s. I visit their Cold Comfort outlet at the Mall of Asia once every four months (maybe) but always there are exciting new flavors to discover. Like Fro-Ya (or Frozen Yakult), Frozen Taho, Butter Pecan, Chocoholics Anonymous and so on. Last week I went crazy over their blue cheese ice cream (P125 for a scoop) drizzled with Palawan honey.
One good thing with Sebastian’s ice cream, when they say blue cheese, it’s really blue cheese. I nibbled on the bits while disbelieving somehow that this cheese others abhor can be turned into a lovable dessert. Tartness mixed with sweetness is intoxicating.
So yeah, I loved this that it warranted a return to the ice cream parlor after only two days. And I fell head over heels again.
Sebastian’s new Pinoy Flavor Fiesta transforms the tastes we’ve grown to love into chilled pleasures. Like our native snack fare of chocolate rice pudding or champorado which Sebastian’s made into an irresistible frozen treat. Cocoa melts with sticky rice in my mouth to make me say “nomnomnom!” with gusto!
The white ice cream beside the champorado (in photo) is tibok-tibok in disguise, or maja blanca if you wish to call it. Be warned, coconut milk in ice cream can be addicting, especially if it’s drizzled with latik.
The ice cream siomai – frozen ice cream dumplings wrapped in phyllo (P125 for five pieces) – is a nice, attractive way of presenting frozen delights. It made me feel like I was munching truffles instead, and the taste is even made more luxurious when dipped in melted white chocolate.
The Chilly Burger is for those who want the double treat of cookies & ice cream. Sebastian’s makes their own cookie sandwich and fill it with their special ice cream, then puts in garnishings. My family votes for Cookie Dough Duo – a pair of chocolate chip cookies in between the house vanilla ice cream with an unbaked cookie dough center, then rolled in crushed chocolate chip cookies!
Oh. My. Goodness!
Take me to the gym please! 😀
