A soothing and filling miki is exactly the soul soup on a sleepy Sunday night. Went back to Jannete’s Place, located among the merienda stalls facing the Batac Riverside Empanadahan after making that wonderful discovery with FoodPrints.
I’m not too fond of egg, so I asked them not to throw Brandon’s into his bowl for me to shoot. Mine is perfect with just chicharon and Ilocos suka ken sili.
Wet Laoag streets.

Miki noodles are handmade and quality depends on where you eat it. I like the way Jannete does her noodles, nicely al dente and slightly seasoned. Lusay noodles in miki is so unappetizing no matter how tasty the soup would be! I tried once to ask her secret recipe, but failed:)
I haven’t been to their branch in Laoag. Jannete says it’s somewhere near the Fariñas bus terminal and Cockhouse. Eugene also drops by the stall in Batac quite often. On busy days, students from MMSU Batac and nearby schools would troop to Jannete’s Place. I noticed halo-halo is also a bestseller.
If you’re eager to try tasty miki, but can’t visit Ilocos soon, though we’d be so happy to have you here, here’s our own recipe at home.
