Afternoon Chill at Aling Foping's Halo-halo

Aling Foping Davao
MTS is the place to be.

A few weeks ago, I was craving for Aling Foping's famous halo-halo, and I blame my mom for it because she posted a photo of her, eating the famous Halo-halo on Instagram. Jeez. So I called her up and demanded to treat me at Aling Foping's Halo-halo when I get home. Spoiled brat lang? Hahaha. But kidding aside, I have reasons to be like that because their halo-halo is to die for!

Just this afternoon, I had the chance to revisit Aling Foping's at Matina Town Square (or as Davaoeños fondly call it, MTS) and tried their Durian halo-halo.

Wait... did I just write DURIAN halo-halo?!

It was quite unusual for MTS to be less chaotic and had a laid-back feel. At night, MTS transforms into a much livelier place, where people drink booze with their friends, and sing and dance to the beat of band music until the liquor ban time (as in 1AM). MTS is a famous destination for party-goers alike, and as well as for people who are craving for halo-halo. Aling Foping's Halo-Halo has been there since God knows when... I think even way before the late 90s when MTS had just sprung to life. The snack bar is famous for its halo-halo because 1) it's delicious; 2) you have the will to choose your own ingredients; and 3) it's freakin' delicious! Oops...

Aling Foping rose to fame after Kris Aquino featured it on her TV show. The first time I visited Aling Foping was last April when I had a quick vacation in Davao. I was with my blogger friends and they were all like convincing me to try their halo-halo. At first, I found it a bit expensive (I mean, who buys a halo-halo worth more than a hundred bucks?), but yeah, I eventually gave it a try.

And from that day, I didn't regret of trying their famous halo-halo.

Alright, enough of the flashback story and let's go back to the present!

Because it's been a month since the last time I ate durian, I ordered their Durian Halo-halo, plus their chili con carne, and their bibingka. What is gutom.

I guess each and every Davaoeños has their own Aling Foping's Halo-Halo story. What's yours?
