A new craze has been sweeping the malls in the metro, Scramble. Its basically shaved ice mixed with a pink flavored powder and with different toppings added on top like milk powder, nuts, choc/strawberry syrup, and cereal.
We tried out Manila Scramble in the food court level of Robinson’s Galleria, there was a queue of around 5 people. The stall was an explosion of pink and brown, a very nice color match. The stall was adorned with multiple images of iconic Philippine things like the calesa, jeepney, Manila post office and the Rizal monument While Irene lined up, I was busy taking some pics of the way they make the scramble.
The scramble are available in 3 sizes, small for P7, medium for P10 and large for P17. Each order comes with milk powder, strawberry and chocolate syrup. Add on toppings are P4 each.
It seems they ran out of medium cups that day so we decided to order the large cups but asked them to skip the strawberry syrup. Irene added extra milk powder in her order while I kept mine plain and simple. The dessert was not new to me since I’ve eaten in from sidewalk vendors before. After eating this version I think I liked the ones from the sidewalk vendor better. I remember they even had sago (tapioca) toppings. But I guess for hygienic purposes, the scrambles from the malls are much cleaner and you’ve got less chances of getting a bug.

I’ve only tried the ones on sidewalks once and also tried the Scramble in Megamall… I think I like the sidewalk one better :D But I’m open to trying again the other scramble brands… like you said, food safety is still top priority :D
