Iced coffee and milk tea are two cold beverages that absolutely dominated 2019. But it's time to give our taste buds something new. Enter: Horchata—a Mexican drink that’s made of rice milk, vanilla, and a touch of cinnamon.
Never heard of it? We found the perfect place where you can try it for the first time:
Meet El Chapo’s, a local food stall that aims to highlight the fusion of Filipino and Mexican cuisine. They have a small stall situated along Esteban Abada in Katipunan which was established in 2016. Aside from horchata, they also serve Fil-Mex dishes, such as tacos, burritos, dynamitas, and nachos.
But if you’re really curious about their famous Horchata (P65 for 12oz), you can purchase one at their newly opened bicycle cart in UP Town Center.
Oh, and did we mention that they serve a dirty (aka coffee-infused) version of it, too? For those who really can’t stay away from caffeine! ;)
El Chapo's is located at 88 Esteban Abada, Loyola Heights, Quezon City, Philippines and UP Town Center in Quezon City.
