Wouldn’t it be great if we can make any ice cream flavor? Not just the conventional Chocolate, Vanilla, or the high end Double Dutch and Dutch Speculoos. We’re talking about Mango Ginger, Davao Meets Bicol (Spicy!), and my all-time favorite, Sweet Basil!
Now what if I tell you that there is an ice cream parlor that has this innovation put to action?
Situated on the streets of Maginhawa, Papa Diddi’s boasts its unique ice cream flavors that dares challenge the norm. They are known to turn the impossible to actuality.We’re talking about flavors that tease the imagination and would make you ask, “How is this even possible?”
Whenever me and my partner visit this ice cream heaven, I would have such a hard time deciding which to order. I usually go for challenging flavors such as anything with Star Anise and Farm Cheese.
If you are torn between flavors and are having a hard time deciding, they offer free taste on a small wooden spoon. My personal advice: taste each flavor first and make your decision worthwhile!
I also adore the interior of the shop. On the wall, right behind the counter, you will see a poster relating the origin of the company. This is such a nice touch to the ice cream parlor! It actually gives an atmosphere and impression of the brand’s sense of family.
Papa Diddi’s also makes smart use of their quaint store space. No wall is unadorned and everywhere you look, there’s something to marvel on. Take the lights, for instance. They have books as lamp shades!
Dessert shops need to be interesting and the pressure on having a well-established theme is amongst the business owners. Papa Diddi’s is not an exception. However, they made is crystal clear that this Ice Cream Parlor is all about Paul Perez’s (the owner) father, the Papa Diddi’s love for family and good ice cream!
