A tastes of Patience: Mang Danny's Ice Cream

DAVAO's BEST: Mang Danny's Ice Cream, Worth to Line for

Filled with various kinds goods and ukay-ukay stalls, Roxas Avenue of Davao City is alive at night... this is the night market of Davao City. 

Among the array of goods and foods, there is one spot where people lined up patiently for hours from this corner to that corner. I am not exaggerating here because I experienced more than an hour lining up, and always witnessed this scenario every time I am in Roxas Ave. 

(People from different walks of life lined up just for this one spot)

As early as 6 PM, customers from grass roots to those being born with silver spoon patiently lined up just to taste the new craze in town, Mang Danny's Ice Cream. 

Mang Danny's Ice Cream? Yes, not known like other commercial ice creams yet people here are going nuts just to taste this ice cream. Mang Danny is a 60 year old man named Dionilo dela Torre. He sells Ice cream more than half of his life and for 46 years of experimenting flavors of his ice cream, he finally nailed it; no wonder why customers loved his' than his other competitors. It is not just luck why he is chosen by many, it is a taste of patience of Mang Danny's.

Mang Danny was 14 years old when he started his Ice Cream business. When he got married, he moved to Davao City to sell ice cream and his family relies on this business. Before, Mang Danny funded his children's studies with hard work selling ice cream in town. He roams around Claveria street and Sta. Ana street during day time under the heat of the sun. 

Mang Danny, driven by passion and motivation to support his family decided to improved the taste of his product. He loved to experiment, he wanted his ice cream to taste the best... he aspired going home with empty tubes in his ice cream cart. He did everything to be the best ice cream maker and it's recognized by his customers. 

Early in the morning Mang Danny buy fresh fruits in the market and make his delicious ice cream. Mang Danny prepares his product by himself because  he wanted it to be perfect. 

An excerpt of Mang Danny's Story at Sun Star Davao

Every night Mang Danny sells ice cream on his spot at the night market at Roxas Ave. One time the weather was not good, it was raining hard, he went to his spot to tell the people at the night market he cannot sell ice cream. When he got to his spot, he noticed a long line of customers waiting for him despite of the heavy rain. Mang Danny went back to his house and grabbed his cart full of Ice Cream and served the long line of customers with his product.
