I've been to Zamboanga City for 3 times already. But it was only on my 3rd visit last August 2013 that I got to try this famous dessert among the Zamboangueños. The knickerbocker is a "halo-halo like" dessert of delightful mix of fresh fruits, jellies, condensed milk and topped with strawberry ice cream. It is a refreshing dessert that has been a long time favorite among locals of all ages.
So, how does it differ from the conventional halo-halo that we are used to? The fruits (watermelon, mango, pineapple, melon, apple) are all fresh! Unlike the halo-halo, the knickerbocker is not too sweet, yet very creamy and refreshing. And yes, it's very filling! :)
Head to Paseo del Mar, (a seafront park located near Fort Pilar) during sunset and experience food adventure by trying out some of the local favorites including the famous knickerbocker at Pinoy Patio (Palmeras) for only Php 65 pesos per glass. Quite refreshing and cheap; a sweet way to cap your night in Zamboanga city.
If you wish to have it anytime of the day, it is also served in the main branch of Hacienda de Palmera Hotel and Restaurant along Pasonanca Road.
So, aside from the famous satti and curacha, grab a cup of knickerbocker at Paseo Del Mar while enjoying the stunning sunset or after riding the vintas sailing around the area.
