Purple Yam is Ube and they got an ice cream flavor for it. For me though it lacked Ube. It was too light. We also got to try Champuy which according to them was their best seller. It’s not for me. Too sweet and that’s not what it should taste like. It has to have a sour hint at least.

Oh wait we had other flavors. Macapuno tasted more like sugar and ice with slight macapuno. Pandan was just okay. This was supposed to be the sweetest one but its not.

There is a need to revisit and make ice cream at par with its equivalent fruit or what have you.

Oh the price at Php 100 for two scoops is too affordable for the area. Sometimes that illicits questions why it’s low priced.

As usual, we did not miss out on our chance to grab a sweet treat together after our lunch at Little Bear Diner (You can check out my review on this, too!)

Purple Yam offers homemade ice cream, with a variety of flavors that are not sold in your usual ice cream parlors. The sales officer even said that their bestselling flavor is CHAMPOY! 128586 We weren't adventurous enough to try that, though.

Josh got the Banana Caramel flavor (middle in the photo), which, according to him, tasted like banana cue. Peter, on the other hand, ordered Strawberry Rhubarb flavor (left in photo), which he liked very much.

As for me, I fell in love with the Genmaicha flavor (right in photo). It is Japanese green tea flavored ice cream which tasted light, but with the right amount of earthiness you'd look for in a cup of tea. It was a delight with every spoonful, worthy of that 1108811088110881108811088! 128525 It kind of reminded me of the house tea that's sometimes served in Japanese reataurants.

Their ice cream flavors are not too sweet, which is just right for my taste. I didn't even have to drink a lot of water afterwards (which I always do because I always find the sweetness lingering in my throat).

The service was good, as the sales officer cheerfully delivered well with our requests to taste some of the flavors before we decided on what to order. The ambiance was okay, not that cozy since it's situated in a kiosk type space. But it's fine for me, since we were just having a quick dessert.

A scoop costs Php 80 to Php 120 or 150 (I forgot), depending on the flavor you choose. Overall, this is a must-try ice cream place when you're in Pasig! 128156127846 (They also have other food, like high-end silog meals).

This is a gem among the high-end stores at Estancia! If you're craving for something sweet and very Filipino, this is the store for you.

They offer unique-flavored ice cream (mangosteen, muscovado pandan, honey pili, and champoy–CHAMPOY!!! That's like a 90s kid ice cream flavor dream!!!) One scoop is priced at ₱60, but you can have two scoops (of different flavors, if you like) for ₱100. I ordered Honey Pili and Muscavado Pandan. It was soooo good!

Aside from that, they also serve a variety of tea, from malunggay to guyabano to mangosteen, for ₱50.
