It’s a holiday tomorrow, and for us that means one thing: Cheat day! If there’s one thing you need to know about us fashion girls, it's that we always scream for ice cream. That said, no gloomy weather or cold breeze can stop us from getting our fill of the creamy treat. Comprised of a great menu with a cool vibe to match, below are a few of our fave ice cream stops around the metro that we suggest you follow on IG, stat.
In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new ice cream shop in town. Chefs Miko Aspiras and Kristine Lotilla have concocted exciting flavors such as chocolate with cacao nib powder, butter, and wait for it…ketchup and mayo. Served with fries on the side, now that’s something you need to try before you react.
Address: Bonifacio High Street, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig
If it’s gelato that you want, you just found your new BFF. The great news? You don’t have to be a Southerner to try their Watermelon sorbet in reduced balsamic syrup or rose water-infused gelato topped with baklava because they just opened a branch in Circuit Makati. Yass!
