Green Mango and Bagoong Ice Cream is so good!

I haven't been blogging much lately, sorry for that! Real life and being back at work has just temporarily stunted my creative brain cells. 

But I tried a dessert today, that's so good, it inspired me to blog again... so I could share it! 

Sebatian's Green Mango Sorbet with warm Bagoong (Shrimp Paste)
Php140 or around SG$4

I had dinner with my siblings at Yaku, a Japanese Grill at Podium and it was okay. We'll probably come back, but the pleasant surprise was dessert. After dinner, both Timmy and Ady wanted to get Ice Cream from Sebastian's. I've heard them mention the place before, but since I'm not really overly fond of Ice Cream, I wasn't too keen. I normally am happy enough bumming a spoon or two from someone else's order.

I even brought Sofia to Toy Kingdom, did some errands in National Bookstore, then I met up with them.  Ady was already half into her Midnight Truffle Burger which I bit from but it was too rich for me. I was really intrigued by the Green Mango and Bagoong Flavor that I asked to try it, and I was blown away! It was soooo good. It called out to the OFW in me. Hahaha. Only because an OFW normally feels deprived since Green Mango and Shrimp Paste is not easy to find in other countries.

This was the ad that made me want to try it.

Unfortunately, I couldn't convince my brother to order it so I could do my normal modus operandi of bumming a few bites. 
He ordered Blueberry Cheesecake instead.
one scoop Php100 (around SG$3)

The taste of the Green Mango Sorbet with Bagoong was so good, I knew that the thought of it would haunt me and if I didn't order it, I would crave for it. I decided to just save myself the trouble and order it and I was so happy I did.

I am not really a Bagoong (shrimp paste) fan,
so I only eat it when it has no fishy taste. This one was perfect.

The Green Mango sorbet has just the right amount of tartness, that it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. They serve the Bagoong warmed up, so it's a nice contrast of cold and sour, with warm and salty. I asked them to serve the shrimp paste on the side so I could control how much shirmp paste I wanted with every bite, and I also ate bites in between with only the sorbet to cleanse my palate. It was green mango heaven!

Sebastian's is a scooping station on the 4th Floor of Podium.
In addition to scooping, the also have Magnum-shaped gourmet bars,
Ice Cream Burgers (big sandwiches!) and Ice Cream Pizza (more like pie).
They have normal flavors like Cookie Dough, Butter Pecan etc.
and Artisan flavors (more expensive) like Green Mango & Bagoong which I loved.
Their other weird flavors include Frozen Taho (really taste like the real thing),
Sapin-Sapin and Once In a Blue Moon (Artisan flavor: Blue cheese with Walnuts and Honey).
The Ice Cream Bars and Ice Cream Burgers.
These were the remnants of Ady's Midnight Truffle Burger.
Size is best for sharing because it's really hard to eat it all. Hahaha.
I tried to share mine with Fif,
but I think she found it too sour.
Hahaha. This is after attempting to eat more.
The good thing is you can just keep trying the flavors before you decide
which one to order. This was the Sapin Sapin one.
So, What's your flavor? 

Green Mango and Bagoong is my flavor. It's so good, I think the next time I crave for Green Mango and Bagoong, I'll want it in Ice Cream form. Just Saying.
