You immediately taste the malt beer flavor in every bite and get bits of soft salted chicharon that effortlessly blends together with the creaminess of the ice cream. This perfectly scooped ice cream concentrates on the beer flavor and not on the sweetness of the cream but doesn’t overpower your taste buds.
Mangga’t Bagoong at Sebastian’s Ice Cream

Sebastian’s Ice Cream is not shy to convey its love for distinctive and crazy Filipino flavors— Kutchinta, Champorado, Sapin-Sapin, Mangga’t Suman, Ampalaya, and Mangga’t Bagoong.
A Filipino favorite in ice cream form
You probably took a second look on that one, but no we’re not kidding. It’s made with green mango sorbet, topped with your choice of warm bagoong or Thai chili sugar. Mangga’t Bagoong is the perfect example of how opposites attract and this is a risk you definitely have to take. The warm and sweet bagoong cuddles the strong sour flavor from the green mango sorbet that makes you smile in every bite. It’s fun, refreshing, and surprisingly addicting.

You don’t need rice for this one

Life isn’t black and white, and ice cream isn’t just vanilla and chocolate. Nothing great comes from the usual and ordinary, so step up and take the risk because glorious things never came from your comfort zone.
