These Unusual Fried Chicken Sandwiches Are for the Adventurous
One has kesong puti ice cream.
(SPOT.ph) Fried chicken sandwiches are good. Ice cream, too, is good. A fried chicken sandwich with ice cream, though? We don't know how to feel, but such a thing apparently exists here in Manila. Dubbed the Creamson, this limited-edition sandwich by Muntinlupa-based burger joint Hey Ho Garage Burgers has a Nashville-style hot fried chicken thigh, salty-sweet kesong puti ice cream, and good ol' Mike's Hot Honey for a touch more sweetness and heat!

Hey Ho Garage Burgers first offered the Creamson as a burger of the month in March 2020. "We've had the idea for the last three years, if I remember [correctly], even before that, we just [weren't] sure how exactly it'd work," says co-owner Sheena Abella, who runs the eatery with her husband Ray. They then came across New York-based chicken-nugget eatery The Nugget Spot online, which has a similar fried chicken-ice cream sandwich. "[We] saw these guys doing it and thought, 'I [know] someone somewhere is gonna dig this,' so we did it." Sheena saw that local ice-cream brand Magnolia had a Kesong Puti flavor and thought it would be "perfect" for their local version, and decided to go with a Nashville hot fried chicken thigh fillet for the patty, and thus, the Creamson was born. "We were so bummed it was short lived last year, due to temporary closure [in light of the enhanced community quarantine], so we brought it back," says Sheena.
The Creamson goes for P235 and will only be available this March. If you'd rather have your sandwich to-go, you can instead get the Creamson v2.GO (P235), which trades the ice cream for whipped kesong puti to make it less susceptible to melting. "Both basically have the same flavor profile but the to-go version is more ideal for to-go orders," says Sheena. "But the original ice cream version really is a must try when you do get the chance." If you're adventurous enough, we say do it.
You can order for dine-in, takeaway, pickup, or delivery through a courier service. Just send them a message on Facebook from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. if you'd like to preorder.
