All about Green Mango with Bagoong ice cream

I get all giddy and excited whenever I hear that a weird dish is available somewhere. Uok, crickets, frogs, Soup No. 5, you name it, I’ll try it! So when Frannywanny and Misslovelytan talked about Sebastian’s Ice Cream’s weird flavors over Frannywanny’s despedida dinner (*sob*), I was all ears. 

Green Mango with Bagoong ice cream. *drooooool*
Okay, that is really different and I would have never thought of it being an ice cream. Thus I didn’t order it right away and asked to sample it first. I was torn between Sapin-Sapin and the Green Mango with Bagoong since the bagoong (shrimp paste) was just placed on top. But when the server agreed to my request of putting bagoong on the cup as well, I was convinced. *One scoop of Green Mango with Bagoong please!*
I noticed that the server heated up the bagoong first before putting it on the green mango sorbet. It was a good contrast of saltiness and warmth of the bagoong with tanginess and coldness of the green mango sorbet. I love it!

However, when I reached midway, I was starting to find my dessert too flavorful and eventually too salty. Apparently, the serving of bagoong was too generous. It made me crave for singkamas (Mexican turnip).
Nonetheless, it was definitely different and hard to forget. But perhaps next time, I’ll ask for less bagoong. (Or have singkamas ready on the side.)

P.S. One scoop costs PHP140.

Sebastian’s Ice Cream is located at Cold Comfort Ice Cream Parlor, SM Mall of Asia, 2nd floor, New Entertainment Mall. For Ortigas girls like me, there’s also one in Podium (4th floor, ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City).
