Pancit Batil Patong, for the meat lovers
If you are in Tuguegarao city you must visit any of the many panciterias available here. The obvious choice would be Eva's Panciteria, one of the most famous in Tuguegarao. Pancit are noodles and this particular dish they serve here is called pancit batil patong.
Big portions with good taste
Just like most panciterias in the city, the kitchen and the cooking of the batil patong is open for the curious to observe upon. Pancit batil patong is pure goodness topped with sautéed ground carabao meat and pork liver adobo and poached egg. The dish comes with the accompanying carabao soup and a saucer of onions with calamansi and chili. Of course you will also have the ubiquitous Tuguegarao-made “Malabon” brand soy sauce. The saying is that batil patong is not batil patong, if not flavored with this unique soy sauce.
There were a lot of students eating here which is an indicator that the place is the real deal. And yes it was, the portions were big, reasonable priced and the taste was good.
