Halo-halo at Doc J's Stop Over and other Don Salvador's offerings to the palate

By GERLIE M. UY

We stayed at Doc J's Stop-over located just about two kilometers from entry to the municipality of Don Salvador Benedicto (aka DSB and don sal) located at 37 Brgy. Pandanon, DSB, Negros Occidental. DSB is a cool place but we dared to have halo halo as it is the place's best offering to those who stop over to the place...

Doc J's Halo Halo has vanilla ice cream, ube halaya, bits of colored kaong,
sugared young buko or coconut shreds and sweetened with milk creamer
and honey with dissolved mascuvado sugar

LANZON (the yellow one) -- steamed grated cassava with young shredded coconut
LINUPAK NGA KAMOTE KAHOY -- pounded cassava with shredded coconut

Don Sal women sell their camote and banana chips
as well as their candied young coconut called BUKAYO. 

LINUPAK NGA SAGING -- pounded sab-a (plantain) banana with young coconut 

TUDLO SANG DALAGA -- lady's finger banana.... with sweet and fragrant pineapples
papaya and squash at the back. This coffeeshop is just steps away from the Lantawon (viewing deck) where the falls can be seen from above. Meters from this shop, there's a house where they also sell yacon and lettuce...

and HOT Tanglad or Lemongrass Tea
