It was before our Pilates Yoga Session at Aerobic Jazz Fit Dance & Fitness Studio we were walking around Iligan City to burn the many food we ate earlier when we passed by Iliganon Cafe & Restobar at Quezon Ave. Extension. Since I have been missing their Durian Shake due to my last visit to Iligan being many years ago, we decided to try it out before I become too busy again to try it.
We went inside and immediately entered into their airconditioned dining area where it was decorated with wood and lots of musical instruments.
I was not hungry then so I went straight to what I want and ordered Durian Shake for 110 Pesos.
After 8 minutes the durian shake was already served. I think we were lucky that we were the only customers that time since it was only around 4 PM.
The durian shake was served in a clear glass with a red straw. The presentation definitely blends with the ambience of the place and the fact that majority of the part of the smoothie is a fruit.
The texture is more thick than your usual smoothie which shows that they have used a significant amount of durian.
The taste was just perfect. A good blend of durian, ice, milk and some sugar with just a tolerable scent of the durian. There’s also a unblended durian meat on top.
Definitely, this should be in your must things to drink when visiting Iligan City.
But maybe try this at least 3 hours before a PiYo session. I had a hard time doing Pilates Yoga with a full stomach!
