Batangas Lomi Recipe
This thick hearty soup is made even more delicious with its generous toppings.
Pancit lomi is a Chinese-inspired noodle soup that is thick and hearty. It is usually made with thick egg noodles, cabbage, carrots, chopped pork and pork liver, all in a thick savory broth. On its own, this Chinese-Filipino noodle soup is a simple but filling dish; however, this Batangas lomi recipe kicks it up a notch.
What is Batangas Lomi?
Batangas lomi has the same base as the pancit lomi, but it's also got a delicious combination of side condiments which Batanguenos will recommend you mix together and pour right on top. Not only that, but they will also insist you eat it immediately, while it's piping hot! This is because if you leave it to cool, it will lose its wonderful thick consistency. This recipe has a surprising ingredient, too: cassava, which gives the soup its consistency and texture.
How can you argue? You can't, and you'll soon discover and agree that it's at its best and most delicious when eaten piping hot with all the toppings and the side condiments stirred in. Here's how to cook lomi Batangas-style, so you can enjoy right at home!
