As soon as I heard Sebastian’s came up with Green Mango with Bagoong Ice Cream, I just couldn’t let a day pass without a trip to either Mall of Asia (near IMAX) or Podium in Ortigas Center.


My imagination failed me. Big time. I just couldn’t imagine ANY ice cream topped with “bagoong” – that very Filipino shrimp paste that’s a perfect match with green, unripe, sour mangoes!



Green Mango Sorbet Topped with Sweet, Warm Bagoong!


Say that again, Sam!



Not cheap. But hey, this is food art at its yummiest! Initially, I thought the idea ends with the look or presentation. Toinks! You’ve got to taste it to believe it. If the green mango with bagoong doesn’t do that for you, try the “Sapin Sapin”! I swear…… I only needed to close my eyes and actually taste the Sapin Sapin flavor in this ice cream. Both flavors were so good that I ordered the same when I visited a second time.




Sapin Sapin Ice Cream in all its yummiest and colors!


Purrrrrrfect to the last spoon!



As for my elves, they ordered the red velvet and the pizza ice cream. I admit I was disappointed they didn’t order the more Filipino flavors like “mangga’t suman”, “champorado” and “pastillas de leche”. Well……. There would be more visits for sure. 😊




A scoop of Red Velvet….. and something else (?)


Mangga’t Suman. Yey!


Champorado Ice Cream…………..Beats the Chocolate Granizado at Valor’s in Madrid! Hands down!



This Christmas Season, there are more flavor offerings. Who can resist “bibingka” , “puto Bumbong” and “quezo de bola” flavors? I’ve had several sets of balikbayans and foreign guests and I’m telling you, all these flavors are such hits! Thank you, Sebastian’s. You do us proud!




Bibingka Ice Cream, topped with……..what else? Shredded Coconut!


I’m giddy with excitement. Puto Bumbong flavored Ice Cream!


Should end every Noche Buena and Media Noche!
