Pancit Batil Patong

Pancit Batil Patong

Pancit Batil Patong or Pancit Tuguegarao is made out of pansit miki Tuguegarao, minced carabao meat (water buffalo), bean sprouts and other vegetables topped with egg and chicharon.  Batil Patong if directly translated means “beat the egg” for Batil and “placed on top” for Patong and that explains the egg on top.

Several months ago I posted a noodle dish called Pancit Cabagan it was one delicious noodle dish and perhaps it’s one of the best pancit Philippines have to offer but that dish have an arch-rival and it’s found in Tuguegarao, the Pancit Batil Patong.  I am not sure why are they compared to each other but if you search either Pancit Cabagan or Pancit Batil Patong in Google you will see lots of articles are comparing them to each other like a review of Canon and Nikon DSLRs, you even see people lean towards one dish and it is very evident as the words “Best Pancit Ever” is on the title.  For me I guess they are both really good but Pancit Palabok will always be my number one, don’t get me wrong on this one both pancit are way much better other noodle dishes in the Philippines.  Anyways I let you guys decide which one is better, just try them out or if you had tried them let me know what’s your thoughts.

    I am an American and I belong to the Rotary Club of TuguegaraoRainbow. They introduced me to Batil PaTong at the Long Life Restaurant. I enjoyed it very much with the liver, onion and egg flavors.Now here in Georgia on 30 day visit, my Filipina friend never heard of this dish and they originate from Quirino, Isabela,,
