Halo Halo is the sweet inspiration behind this Toronto food fest happening in August at the Wychwood Barns.
The national dessert of the Philippines translates literally to ‘mix-mix’ and is known to feature a wild assortment of fruits, jellies, beans, nuts, and ice cream decorating a base of shaved ice sweetened with evaporated milk.
Like the sweet treat itself, the Filipino food festival (the third of its kind held in Toronto since 2014), promises a colourful array of arts, culture, entertainment, and of course, edibles.
While the line-up of vendors and headliners have yet to be announced, if its anything like previous editions, look forward to everything from adobo and pancit, to lechon and lumpia on offer along with traditional folk music, dances, and kid friendly activities.
