“Must try for food trippers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

If you're food tripping in Pampanga, this should be on your list. Probably the best halo halo I have ever tasted. Although the place is very small, crowded, and claustrophobic, you can just get a take away and enjoy the halo halo as you go. They also offer palabok and some kakanins. Price is not cheap but it's worth it especially if you have not experienced it.

“Certainly different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

The main branch of Kabigting's is in Arayat, Pampanga but they have a branch in Robinson's San Fernando, at the food court.

I am a fan of halo-halo and the version that I usually get in Manila is the colorful one with all the beans, banana, sago, leche flan, etc, etc, etc. This halo-halo had pastilles de leche (candied carabao's milk), mashed beans and corn. The combination was scrumptious! It was surprisingly good and a reminder that one need not stuff halo-halo with everything and the kitchen sink to be good. It is a dessert that is to be savored and enjoyed.

I hear that there is a branch in Quezon City that I have every intention of looking for. This is perfect for the summer heat!

“The Best Halo-Halo. Period.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

This is the best halo-halo in the Philippines. The way the ice is crushed provides the best texture in this dessert. It's also made with carabao's milk which makes it perfectly rich and completes the dessert. Razon's is also good, but I prefer this. In Pampanga so many advertise as the best halo-halo and people say what makes one halo-halo better than the other is the ice used. I think it's subjective and this place is worth a try, If you find better, let me know.

“Old classic with a twist!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

We had time to kill before the 4PM Sunday mass and decided to drop by the new branch of Kabigting's at NS Amoranto, Quezon City. This branch is tiny; it can only sit around 15 people at a time and they only serve around 8 dishes. The star of their menu is the halo-halo, a concoction of native sweets topped with super fine shaved ice and evaporated milk. If you have tried Razon's halo-halo, then you'll know exactly how the ice is. It is so fine that it crumbles when the milk is poured over it. Kabigting's halo-halo is simple. It consists of sweet beans, sweet corn and pastillas de leche topped with ice and milk. Having sampled all types of halo-halo, from the really simple (like Razon's) to the ornate (16-ingredient varieties!), Kabigting's version is refreshing. The sweet beans give the concoction a thicker consistency but the surprise are the morsels of pastillas de leche. You put a spoonful of the dessert in your mouth, thinking that the small solid bits are ice, but surprise, they turn out to be very milky pastillas. Never thought pastillas would go well with shaved ice. This heavenly dessert only cost P75. Really cheap and super delicious. Now I have another favorite.

“creamy and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

the Halo halo is great. It is very smooth and they used pasteurized Carabaos milk. The Taro was good. Homey surroundings.
