This perhaps is one of the best durian shakes in the Philippines! Yes! That’s a fearless statement!

Every durian lover’s bucket list should have this thick, creamy and all that durian goodness in a tall glass topped with real durian bits provided with a bigger than usual straw to sip all that heavenly stuff.

It’s so good that whenever I am in Iligan, Iliganon’s unforgettable durian shake always plays out in my mind, especially when I tasted it first at their branch in Seminary Drive followed by another one in the Tibanga branch. Heck, even while writing this one, I can still remember the great taste, the slight brain freeze, the smoothness of the concoction. And when I got to the bottom, the velvety texture of the pureed fruit slid smoothly on my tongue.

Want to hanker for more? Pair this one with their other popular dish, the spicy beef randang lying on a bed of hot, white rice and you will have something memorable to keep: spicy kick and sweet durian dreams.

The beef randang (yes, its spelled that way, not rendang) is spicy, well flavored and makes you want to have more durian shake!
