Hello? How could I have tried it just today? Isabela’s favorite noodle dish has been on this side of Ilocos for over a year now.
It was actually my first time to try out food all by myself. I failed to eat lunch because I had to catch an appoinment in Batac. I was supposed to meet up with Eugene after my appointment, so we could eat empanada at the Riverside, but things didn’t go as planned. He had to stay behind in MMSU for an important activity. Then it rained ’til I thought of the pancit Cabagan I read about in a travel mag.
Pancit Cabagan-Isabela’s Best in Laoag serves the same pancit that was first introduced by a Chinese settler in the town of Cabagan in Isabela. I tried their 40-peso super without egg. I expected a generous topping of crispy lechon skin de carajay, but the skin was so little. Nevertheless, I loved it! The authentic special noodles they use come all the way from Isabela. The owners are from Alicia, Isabela.
They also serve pancit Cabagan sabaw, a soupier version.
It’s good to know that they deliver bilao orders. They have Bilao 15 (good for 15 people), P650.00; Bilao 10 (good for 10 people), P550.00; Bilao 7 (good for 7 people), P350.00; and Bilao 3 (good for 2-3 people), P150.00.
