MANILA – Summer is officially here! And with the ongoing El Niño phenomenon affecting the islands, this year’s dry season may get quite hot even for Filipinos. Just a few days into the official start of summer, temperatures in Metro Manila has hit over 35 degrees Celsius, according to weather bureau PAGASA. 

Luckily, a dessert shop located at the boundary of Quezon City and Manila City has a cool offering: ice scramble. And it’s not just something to eat to beat the heat. 

My Cookie Lab’s take on this classic street food is also a nostalgic trip.

The solo version at P75 per mug is a bit pricey compared to the ones being sold in the streets but it offers bigger serving and better presentation for the premium.

It comes in its classic form: pink icy slush topped with powdered skim milk, tiny marshmallows and chocolate syrup. 

But for more adventurous eaters, there are also other flavors like Green Tea Matcha, Red Velvet, Cookies and Cream and more.

Also on the menu is an extra large portion of the dessert that is best for sharing. 

Meanwhile, those who enjoy the experience of putting the sweet course together can also do so with the do-it-yourself package.
