Carmelite Monastery and Angeles City's best halo-halo

Whether you intend to visit the Carmelite Monastery in Angeles City or try RFW (considered to be  Angeles City's best halo-halo and palabok place), you may want to do both since the monastery and the eatery are just across each other.

Here's the Carmelite Monastery. The weather was a bit gloomy when we dropped by there.

Here's inside the church.  Very solemn.

 Peaceful place.   

You may want to light candles for your petitions and loved ones you wish to pray for while you're there. You can buy the candles at the store near the side entrance of the church. 

For schedule of masses at the Carmelite Monastery, please visit

Right across the Carmelite Monastery is an eatery called RFW - my friends who grew up in Angeles City say it serves the best halo-halo and pansit palabok - a perfect place to have merienda.  

Here's the bestseller RFW Pansit Palabok.  A platter costs only Php40!

And here's the RFW Halo-Halo - considered as Angeles' City's best halo halo. A big bowl costs Php60.  The shaved ice is not as smooth as Razon's but I love it!  Its main ingredients are home-made macapuno and corn.  After tasting it, I couldn't decide which one I like better - Razon's or RFW's. Haha...

The Carmelite Monastery and RFW are located along Sto. Rosario St., Sto Domingo, Angeles City, Pampanga.  If you wish to contact RFW, their phone numbers are +63 927 2809996 and +63 946 2472160.
