These are fresh photos of batil patung from my last visit in Tuguegarao. I have to thank insiders for taking the time to bring me and my good friend to Jovan’s. Like how it was described to me before we went to this panciteria, Jovan’s batil patung does not smell like nuang, even though it’s mixed with loads of carabeef. Not double dead meat I’m very sure.
They make their own noodles in their backyard. The diner is able to witness how the batil patung is being prepared. I was very happy with mine. Indigenous pancit at its best! Perfectly al dente, do you love those words?
So that explains the Filipino terms batil and patung — mix and top. But I wonder when it should be patung batil?
