Where to Indulge in Shaved Iced Desserts from the Philippines, Japan, and Taiwan

This newcomer at The Wharf serves Thai, Korean, and Filipino cuisines. So far customers seem to be gravitating toward the Filipino dishes, and that trend should continue when it comes to dessert. Kaliwa serves a take on halo-halo ($9) featuring evaporated milk ice, bananas, pandan jelly, red beans, and ube ice cream. Two colors really pop—bright green from the sweet, grassy-tasting pandan jelly and deep purple from the ube ice cream.
