Arayat’s Pride: Kabigting’s

Kabigting’s started in 1974 as a small carinderia at the house of Boy Kabigting in Arayat, Pampanga. This small family business became popular for its yummy and delightful halo halo that it became known for. Soon, people from far away places started looking for this hidden wonder and thus the title, Pride of Arayat.

What differs the version of Kabigting’s halo halo from the others is its succulent simplicity. With only three main ingredients in it: mashed kidney beans, jalea (carabao’s milk pastillas) and cream corn, this unique version does not overwhelm the sweetness of the dessert but brings balance to the ingredients and with a taste that surprisingly compliments each of the three. For only 60php ($1.5), this halo halo can definitely satisfy your summer cravings.

From a small carinderia, Kabigting’s now has 8 branches which is a testimony of how popular their halo halo has become. This popular merienda place now also offers a variety of food in their menu such as their equally popular palabok, a comfort food among Filipinos.

Kabigting’s Branches:

Nepo Mall, Angeles City Balibago, Angeles City Marquee Mall, Pampanga San Fernando, Pampanga Arayat, Pampanga Guagua, Pampanga

Manila Branch: Amoranto corner Banawe, Quezon City
