La Paz Batchoy: Hot, Sinful, Satisfying

This is, in my opinion, one of the best ways to fortify oneself for an afternoon of serious shopping: a piping-hot bowl of Extra Super Batchoy from Ted’s Oldtimer La Paz Batchoy.

It’s one of those dishes that is served with everything but the kitchen sink because of the extensive variety of toppings loaded into the bowl.  Apart from the miki noodles in the savory broth, there are also slivers of poached pork liver, finely sliced pork offal (intestines and the like), stir-fried pork, sping onions, toasted garlic, and crushed chicharon (fried pork rinds).

Sinful?  Oh, my, yes!  But it is nevertheless a delightfully fortifying dish that will keep you going – besides, it’s a once-in-a-blue-moon indulgence for me.  😉
