That’s probably the reason why you got here, so let’s not waste time and learn how to make this yummy pancit now! 

What is Pancit Lomi?

Pancit Lomi (Lomi Batangas) is a popular Filipino noodle soup especially in the province of Batangas and is often enjoyed as an afternoon snack or afternoon meal.

Just like any other pancit dish, this is often partnered with a bunch of ingredients, ranging from meat, vegetables, and sometimes, seafood. This irresistible dish is characterized by the distinct thick and soft noodles used—the lomi noodles. 

What are Lomi Noodles?

Lomi noodles are a type of thick egg noodles which are usually soaked in lye water during the process of making it and are characterized by having a thick and chewy texture.

The popular Lomi from Batangas includes—of course—the lomi noodles as the primary ingredient, along with a variety of meat cuts such as chicken, some vegetables, and a soup which is thickened by using a cornstarch mixture.

How to Cook Pancit Lomi?

The process of making pancit lomi is pretty much your everyday style of cooking. But it can be quite overwhelming to think about since it involves a lot of ingredients.

Making this a successful dish can be pretty satisfying though, so it is definitely something worth doing! To avoid confusion with your ingredients, just visualize the process of what you need to do:

First, cook the meats (for this recipe, the chicken) then the noodles, and then the vegetables followed by the sauce. It’s all one smooth flow of cooking. After that you’re just going to mix them all together.

When cooking the meat ingredients, it is advisable to cut them as equal as possible so they can be evenly cooked in the pan. Cutting it in smaller sizes is also good as the insides will be cooked easily and the whole dish will be more flavorful in every bite.

When cooking the vegetables, it is generally a good idea in pancit recipes to blanche them first. This is because it will still be cooked once you mix all the ingredients, and vegetables can be easily overcooked.

Overcooked vegetables will result in them being soggy, and it will give a quite unpleasant feeling when eating the pancit.

Optional Toppings

People try to make their pancit lomi extra special by adding unique toppings. Some of the more usual topping you add are:

  • Hardboiled eggs
  • Chicharon
  • Kikiam
  • Squid balls
  • Meatballs

Other Versions of Pancit

There are many types of pancit dishes that you can find all over the country. These dishes almost always include a variety of ingredients topped into the noodles, but they are prepared differently, depending on the availability of the ingredients from the area and depending on the culture.
