Hollywood stars Penn Badgley and Shay Mitchell enjoyed the Manila Peninsula’s famous oversized halo-halo called “Halo-Halo Harana.”
The classic Filipino dessert was served in an oversized, custom-made bowl instead of the usual tall glass and is worth P790. In a series of Instagram stories, the delightful experience was shared by the Filipino-Canadian actress and model. Aside from halo-halo, the Hollywood stars also tried out Filipino dessert and street food turon.
The two stars are currently in Manila to promote their hit Netflix original series “You” where Penn plays the lead character “Joe Goldberg” and Shay portrays “Peach Salinger.” The psychological thriller series was based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same title. It is Penn’s first time in the Philippines while Shay, whose mom hails from Pampanga has been in the country three times now.
