Lomi Recipe

Lomi or Pancit Lomi is a Chinese-Filipino noodle dish made with a thick variety of fresh egg noodles of about  about 1/4 inch in diameter , sautéed with small pieces of pork or chicken meat, liver and select vegetables, added with tasty broth and then thickened  beaten eggs. The most popular among these variations would probably be the Batangas Lomi. There are as many styles of cooking lomi as there are eateries, panciterias or restaurants offering the dish. They served several toppings are added prior to serving such as chicharon (crispy pork skin) and hard boiled egg.
