If you are craving for ice cream and tired of the usual flavors, do drop by (as in highly recommended) PAPA DIDDI’s along Maginhawa street in Quezon City.
Missed the chance to have another taste at their shop when featured on Sarap Diva with Asia’s Got Talent finalists, Junior New System and Inday of said show a few months ago because I was assigned to the studio shoot.
Fast forward, was invited to experience Eastwood Mall’s Weekend Spice Souk with fellow foodies and was really happy to see Papa Diddi’s among the chosen exhibitors.
Giddily tried their ‘Forbidden Rice’ and ‘Farm Cheese’ and then went around the exhibit again with a mental note to go back and try their ‘Tarragon’ and ‘Mango Ginger’ – was pressed for time but almost ran to their spot for a taste before leaving.
It may be Divine Providence or they just saw how ‘enthusiastic’ I was with their products that they gave a pint of ‘Farm Cheese’ (Kesong Puti) and a pint of ‘Cheese Closed’ to-go (insert tears of joy here).
Now why am I so ‘addicted’ to their ice cream you may ask? Well aside from their ‘I did not know you can make ice cream out of that’ flavors (champorado, roasted forbidden rice, tarragon, etc.), its because their products are made from locally sourced ingredients, made in small batches that are hand-mixed and hygienically packed!
So there you go, don’t just take my word for it, try it! Now let me enjoy my ice cream!
