Cooking Pancit Lomi

I tried cooking pancit lomi with soba noodles. While it seemed to be a complex recipe when I eat them in stalls in the Philippines, it turned out to be an easy dish to cook. It does need a lot of ingredients; but it's worth the while once it's on your plate.

Wanna' try cooking pancit lomi too? Follow the simple guides I have in this post.

Pancit lomi or lomi is a noodle dish with a thick soup, lots of meats and vegetables. It's usually eaten with soy sauce and lime at the side. This Chinese or Filipino style recipe is great for an afternoon snack, lunch and yes, even dinner. It's very much like cooking pancit recipe, though. I suppose pancit lomi uses more meats and has very dense sauce.

Growing up in Batangas (Philippines), I've never thought of actually cooking pancit lomi. There is hardly a need to do so since pancit lomi's are practically everywhere in my hometown. However, now that I am away from home, it's about time I make my own lomi.

Some like their lomi a bit sour and tangy; some don't. That's why you should always prepare soy sauce and lime at the side when cooking pancit lomi. Also, the soup of pancit lomi is supposed to be thick. While cooking pancit lomi noodles, it's starch should aid as a thickening agent to its soup. In case you've put too much water into your dish, don't worry. Just add hot water and cornstarch into a small bowl. Mix them well and pour some on your dish while cooking pancit lomi until you get your desired consistency.
