Lomi Recipe

Lomi or pancit lomi is a thick soup made with vegetables, eggs, liver, chicken and noodles. This hearty soup is best eaten steaming hot. This dish has several variations across the country. They are also readily available in many Chinese restaurants, local food stalls and supermarkets.

Pancit lomi is a very popular soup dish in the Philippines. But, the most popular version is the Batangas lomi. I have tried the Batangas lomi and it really tastes great. It is different from the Chinese restaurants typically served. By the way, Lomi dish originated in China, which is why many Chinese restaurants served this dish. Anyway, the Batangas version does not include vegetable just kikiam and other meats. My version of lomi is more Chinese as I added vegetables.
