The Red Pancit

UPDATED PHOTO: This is the Pancit Tikyano we had last Sunday. (03/31/2013)

Hi! How was your long weekend? Did you go anywhere? Aside from being stuck in the hospital for 5 days, I was excited to go home to Batangas City for Undas (All Soul's Day). Most especially, I was excited to come home to the great food that awaits me.

Whenever I come home to the province, there is always this one food that I look forward to - the RED pancit, or more popularly known as Pancit Tikyano or Letty's Pancit. It can only be found in Batangas City and has been a local favorite for as long as I can remember.

The pancit is delicious by itself but most of us Batangueños would eat it with rice. Even before all those instant ulam noodles, the Pancit Tikyano already existed. This red stir-fried noodles is topped with carrots, cabbage, pork, CHICHARON, etc. Just looking at the picture above makes my mouth water already. 

Remember how they say to eat pancit for long life? Well, my lolo and lola ate this pancit almost everyday and they lived until the ages of 92 and 93 respectively. I guess it must be true. 

I would definitely recommend it to anyone that would visit Batangas City. It's a must! The Pancit Tikyano can only be found at Letty's Restaurant in M.H. del Pilar St., Batangas City. It's near the Church of the Immaculate Concepcion.

I hope you had a great long weekend as well.

  26. This red pancit is actually a hidden family recipe that only a few people know of it. The owner of this restaurant is a relative of mine but I don't know the recipe at all. However, my uncle who passed away in 2005 is actually one of the few that knows about this special recipe.
