La Paz Batchoy from Ted's Oldtimer La Paz Batchoy
Blame it on memory gap. I couldn't remember if this was Extra Super Batchoy or the variant Beef Batchoy. But I remember it was über delicious!:p
I've been hankering for La Paz batchoy since the typhoons and monsoon rains started. Batchoy is my ultimate comfort food---it's a hearty bowl of hot, feel-good soup and nostalgia. It is a quintessential Ilonggo dish as sisig to the Kapampangans. Growing up in Negros, we had batchoy any time of the day, in all kinds of weather. Unlimited servings of kaldo (soup), chicharon bits and crunchy garlic were free then.
