Special Lomi Recipe

This Special lomi recipe is cooked with pork strips, kikiam, fishballs, chicharon and chicken liver, herbs and spices. This is just the best lomi recipe ever.

What is lomi and what makes Lomi different in taste than other noodles? According to Wikipedia:

“Lomi or Pancit Lomi is a Filipino dish made with a variety of thick fresh egg noodles of about a quarter of an inch in diameter, soaked in lye water to give it more texture. Because of its popularity at least in the eastern part of Batangas,[1] there are as many styles of cooking lomi as there are eateriespanciteriasor restaurants offering the dish. Variations in recipes and quality are therefore very common.”

That is why I make sure to wash the lomi thoroughly, it’s because of the lye water. The lye water makes the lomi pancit chewy, but on the other hand it leaves an after taste if not washed thoroughly.

Special Lomi Recipe


1/2 kilo lomi noodles (washed thoroughly to remove too much saltiness and after taste)
3 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
1 medium onion, minced

6 to 8 pieces cooked meatballs
