This Street-Side Eatery in Paco Serves Traditional Batil-Patung Made with Ingredients from Cagayan

August 30, 2019

Jibs Batil-Patung, a street-side carinderia near Quirino Street, serves traditional pancit batil patung, a popular stir-fried noodle dish from Tuguegarao City. It consists of freshly-made miki, fried egg, carabao beef, chicharon, karahay (fried pork), and a medley of vegetables. What really sets it apart, though, is the accompanying egg drop soup. It’s made using the broth used to cook the miki.

Traditionally, you eat the soup as a sort of essential side dish. (It’s not like lomi, which puts the two elements together.) It also comes with a dip of onions, soy sauce, vinegar, calamansi, and chili, mixed to your preference. Jibs offers it in three sizes for dine in, but they also sell it in bilaos for bigger groups.

Getting jibby with this pancit.

Owner Irene Sanchez was born and raised in Cagayan. When she moved to Manila, she wanted to bring a sense of home with her; and so she set up Jibs Batil-Patung. All of the raw ingredients they use are imported from Cagayan, including the sugar cane vinegar used for the sauce. They also make some of the condiments, such as their sambal, in-house.
