Filipino Flavors and More at Sebastian's Ice Cream





I have written about Sebastian's Ice Cream a few months back, featuring the Artisan flavor Once In a Blue Moon and Cornflake Milk. This time I'll be leaning more on flavors that I never thought would be ice cream flavors: the Filipino flavors and other Artisan flavors! :) 

It's been a while since I had my first scoop of Sebastian's, and I've been a fan since. And I love that they keep on introducing a new flavor every now and then. 

Sebastian's recently introduced two new Artisan flavors: Green Mango & Bagoong and Bacon Cheddar. 

Green Mango & Bagoong


Green Mango & Bagoong (Php 140, single scoop) is green mango sorbet topped with warm sweet bagoong. I was really intrigued yet nervous about trying this new flavor. I could feel my heart beating fast as the sorbetera handed me my cup. 

It was surprisingly good! :) The sourness of the green mango sorbet makes me want more bagoong, seriously. :)

Bacon Cheddar

Bacon Cheddar (Php 155, single scoop) is sharp cheddar cheese with candied bacon. I firmly believe that bacon goes well with anything, and this ice cream strengthened that belief. It really defined the term 'cheesy bacon'. :)

Sebastian's also offers interesting Filipino flavors like Champorado and Mangga't Suman.

Champorado
Mangga't Suman

Champorado (Php 100, single scoop) is chocolate kakanin ice cream made of sticky rice, cocoa & chocolate. It's nice how they created this rainy day treat to an ice cream version. 

Mangga't Suman (Php 100, single scoop) is coconut kakanin ice cream with mango sorbet. The coconut kakanin ice cream and mango sorbet is a perfect balance of sweetness. 

They also have Mango Sansrival and Sapin-Sapin. :)

Sapin-Sapin

Mango Sansrival (Php 100, single scoop) is Cashew-Butter Ice Cream with wafer chunks, cashews and mango swirl. I loved the buttery sweetness of this flavor. :)

Sapin-Sapin (Php 100, single scoop) is the most interesting flavor for me. It has kutchinta, langka, ube and gata kakanin ice cream topped with latik. It's really wonderful how it was concocted. Yes, it was delicious! 

Sebastian's Ice Cream never fails to surprise me with yummy flavors that I can't help going back and try what they have to offer.

Have you tried Sebastian's Ice Cream? What's your favorite flavor?

  5. Wow..this is something unique...fusion of pure pinoy flavors. I remember somewhere in Bicol they have also different flavors of ice cream. I saw it on Kris TV few months back.

    What's funny in the first photo that caught my attention is the girl sitting in a mini-lounge hahaha..she's like having her toenails cut hahahaha...or sort of that hahaha.

  10. What surprised me most was the green mango with bagoong flavor but everything did pique my curiosity! Now that's thinking outside the box! I definitely have to try these! Thanks for the post! ;)

  11. I never thought you can actually make an ice cream with bacon in it. Cold bacon is just so wrong.

    I can't imagine the taste of bagoong on top of something cold. What an adventure for the tongue indeed.

  12. My friends who tried sebastian's are all praises for it. Their most recommended flavor is sapin-sapin. I on the other hand is still waiting for a chance to try it. This is the first time I've heard of an ice cream with bagoong. Since you swore by it I might as well give it a try when I get a chance to visit this store.
