I've tried different versions of halo halo from different establishments and everyone has their own favorites. In my opinion, a good halo halo should contain more than three main ingredients, if it doesn't it should be only known as a con yelo. Another important component of the dessert is the crushed or shaved ice, it has to be powdery smooth and pleasant to the mouth. A Chinese fast food chain used to have a 100k peso machine just to make ice for their halo halo.
With everything said, I can say that Milky Way's halo halo is arguably the best halo halo found in the metro. It has every component for it be called a good halo halo. Ingredients consists of sweet beans, nata de coco, garbanzos, macapuno, langka, ube, leche flan, pinipig, milk and with topped homemade ube ice cream . The smooth powdery shaved ice is made using a traditional ice shaver. I like how no sugar or syrup was added, it just had the right amount of sweetness. Most importantly, what I think set Milky Way's halo halo apart is their version has a inexplicable malinamnam taste and flavor.
