Noodle Soup with Chicken & Pork
La Paz Batchoy
Batchoy [bat-choy] is a popular noodle dish originated from the district of La Paz, Iloilo in Philippines, that is why the dish is called La Paz Batchoy.
Traditionally, it is cooked with pork offal and liver, but today there many variations to this dish. My version doesn’t have offal or kidney but it tastes just as good. The secret to a good Batchoy is the base (its all about the base), you can use beef & pork bones OR chicken & pork bones and to make this dish a unique soup; you can use shrimp paste. This hearty Filipino Noodle soup is great in colder months but it is also one of those comfort dishes all year round.
