Giant “pansit batil patong” served and gone in minutes at Cagayan fest
TUGUEGARAO CITY –– A giant noodle dish, called “pansit batil patong,” was consumed in minutes after it was served to about 500 people on Saturday (Sept. 28) at the first “Cagayan Valley Food and Music BESTival” held at a mall.
As much as 200-kilograms of miki noodles, 500 pieces of poached eggs, and 20 kilograms of carabao beef were used to cook this Cagayan delicacy, according to Gerina Rose Malubay-Torno, public relations officer of SM Tuguegarao.
“We love this food because of its unique taste. It is something that makes us proud of Cagayan Valley,” said Rodel Baquiran, a batil patong enthusiast.
Each dish of noodles was topped with poached eggs, sautéd meat, and vegetables. Then an egg is cracked open and mixed with the simmering beef stock that is poured into a bowl along with a special sauce and a tablespoon-full of chopped onions and vinegar dip./lzb
