A Taste of Heaven in Maginhawa Street
One of the fun things about the summer season is figuring out ways to cool down. There’s going to the beach or flocking to the nearest pool, hanging out in malls to take advantage of the free air-conditioning, and my personal favorite: eating. The classic Pinoy favorite is, of course halo-halo. And then there’s your friendly neighborhood ice candy and the much beloved sorbetes. Shakes and smoothies are also popular summer staples and for those looking for a more Western take on beating the heat, milkshakes are the way to go.
A Taste of Heaven’s freedom wallMilkshakes in ATH start with a low-fat, soft-serve vanilla ice cream base that was specially formulated just for them. They have three Classic Flavors (P80): Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry . The milkshakes at ATH are nicely thick and smooth, it kind of makes you feel like you’re drinking your dessert through a straw.
Almighty BurgerA Taste of Heaven’s OMG Chili Wings (P95) that actually made me go oh-em-gee. Silently, in my head, but still. Those wings are amazingly delicious. Kudos to the owners as it is their own recipe. The wings are perfectly fried and coated in a fiery red, more than mildly spicy, tangy, and not at all sweet sauce. It is how Buffalo wings are supposed to be. It is served with a deliciously pungent blue cheese dip. It took me a while to get used to blue cheese but once I learned to appreciate it, there was no turning back. If you’re not a big fan of it, I hope you give it another shot as it really is quite wonderful. If not, the wings are just as tasty, dip or no dip.
