Digman’s Halo-Halo


Welcome to Bacoor Cavite, Home of the famous Digman’s Halo-Halo.

Digman is a baranggay near the Town Plaza of Bacoor. Digman’s Halo Halo is located along the Streets of H. Rubio and C. Gawaran. If you are a first timer, you might get confused because There are Two Digman Stores in that area. The first one you will see is the BC2 Digman Original Halo Halo (Talk of the Town) then just a stone-throw away, when you turn to the other street, you will see The Original Digman Halo-Halo and Home Made Siopao. Actually, I have tried both of them, Heard both of their Stories and Frankly, I still do not know who is the Original Digman Halo-Halo.

Both stores boast newspaper and magazine clips, they have almost identical store set-up, they sell almost the same set of products and they are both claiming to be the Original - both sounding very convincing I must say. But among those similarities, what set’s one from the other was the presence of a patent (Yes! May patent ang Halo-Halo! :p). The Original Digman Halo-Halo and Home Made Siopao (Located along H. Rubio St.) boast a patent number for their Halo-Halo. But does that mean that they are the Original? I am still confused.

Both stores offer identical halo-halo but BC2 Digman Original Halo-Halo (Located along C. Gawaran St.) offers Ice cream in their Stores, on the other hand in the Original Digman’s side, if you would like Ice Cream on your Halo-halo, they will get a scoop from the ice cream parlor beside their store. They also offer the same number of “Halo” in their products – “ ‘Sang Dosena” (But when we counted it, it was more than 12). They even taste similar! I am still Confused.

Speaking of Sandosenang Halo, probably you have seen one in side an SM Mall, in the food courts to be exact. According to  BC2, they are the “Owners” or Franchise owners of the said establishment. Still Confusing? Hehe! :p

I guess you just have to decide for yourself. :) Then Tell me what you think! :)

This one is The Original Digman Halo-Halo and Home Made Siopao. ( I like their Halo-Halo Better)

This Home based Halo-Halo business has been a favorite of the Locals, Tourists, and Food Enthusiasts for more than a decade. They say that you have never been to Bacoor if you have not tried Digman’s Halo-Halo.  But aside from Halo-Halo, they also offer Home Made Siopao and Pansit.

Their Halo-Halo is sweet already as it is, the sugar is served on the side, only as an option. :) Also, I prefer mine without the ice cream :)

They serve Delicious Halo-Halo All-Year-Round! Not only during Summer! So if you are in this part of town, you have to pay a visit to either one of the Two Original Stores :) It is a great alternative to Chowking’s Halo-Halo :p

If ever you paid a visit, tell me what you think! :)

Hanggang Sa Muli! Paalam! :)
