Quick Bite: First Colonial Grill's Chili Ice CreamSunday, March 22, 2015
One cannot simply visit Bicol and not try First Colonial Grill's famous Chili Ice Cream. Yes, you heard (read) right! One thing we, Bicoleños, are known for is our love for everything spicy. Well, maybe not so much for me as I grew up in Manila, but for everyone else.

I might not be able finish 3 scoops of chili flavored ice cream, but I didn't go all the way to Bicol to pass up an opportunity to have a taste of this famous flavor. I had a couple of teaspoonfuls of it and I'd have to say that it's not that bad. Initially, you'll just taste the milk, the chili kicks in once the whole thing goes down.
One of the other weirder flavor is the Calamansi (Calamondin) Flavor; which was a strange mixture of citrus and milk flavor. If you have a sensitive stomach, this would definitely trigger a gastric problem.
Now, somebody has to try the normal stuff. That would be me. Yes, I'm the opposite of tough. Haha. If I can't bear to try the chili, at least I'd take the other thing Bicol was known for, Pili Nuts. The pili nut flavored ice cream was my favorite with right amount of milk and nuts.
