#FoodoftheDay: Xie Ping by Dimsum Break

Dimsum Break, Xie Ping, Halo-Halo, Chinese Shaved Ice dessert, Kalami Cebu seal of approval

It has been a scorching summer so far.  On most days, I just want to eat something cold.  I was perfectly happy with the halo-halo at Chowking and the Snow Ice Halo-Halo of Majestic, until I discovered Dimsum Break's Xie Ping.  The popular Cebuano Dimsum joint is marketing this new dessert as Chinese shaved ice dessert. For me, it is really just halo-halo with ube-flavored ice (well, some halo-halo places put ube on the classic Filipino dessert anyway).  I actually liked it a lot and for that I am giving this dessert the Kalami Cebu seal of approval.

3 Good Reasons Why Dimsum Break's Xie Ping gets a Kalami Cebu badge

Coolness Factor

Summer 2016 is so hot and Dimsum Break made the right decision of launching an ice cold offering. Dimsum Break is my go-to place when it comes to steamed rice, spring rolls, hakaw, siomai, and other dimsum offerings.  With the addition of Xie Ping, the restaurant became a perfect spot for summer snacks.


Guess how much their version of the Pinoy Halo-Halo is? It's only 85 pesos and the serving is good enough to share. You can take a girl to a Dimsum Break and share a Xie Ping.  Mag-Xie-Ping sa Dimsum Break (It does not sound right though).  The dessert is perfectly priced.  Some  trendy Korean joints offer these kinds of dessert at 4 times the price. With the money you save, you can order steamed rice value meals.  It's not only for dates but this dessert is perfect for the family and barkada.

Enjoyment Factor

You might think that since this is cheap then the quality might be bad. You are wrong if that's what you thought. The ice has that creamy goodness like the snow ice halo-halo at Majestic.  If you love, Ube Ice Cream you will go crazy with Xie Ping.  Dimsum Break did not scrimp on toppings.  The new cold dessert has leche flan, kaong, sweetened beans, and even jackfruit.  You will really enjoy this one.

I can say this dessert is a must-try.  The only downside is that they do not offer other flavors.  I know a lot of people who do no like ube and they would not enjoy the Xie Ping.  If you are looking for a good dessert to quell the heat summer, you better head down to the Dimsum Break outlets nationwide and try the Xie Ping, Chinese shaved dessert.
