It is highly recommended to go on a Pansit Food Trip when you are in Tuguegarao.

For such a little town, you can see pansiteria in almost every corner like Starbucks in Makati. The popular ones are Boks, Budjoks, Clare, Gretchens, and Natans. Ask any person in Tuguegarao and they would have their own pansiteria favorites. Don’t worry most of them are the same in taste and they differ in the ambiance, cleanliness and service of the place.

The Tuguegarao Pansit is called Batil-Patong. The main ingredients are pansit miki Tuguegarao, cara beef, togue with an egg on top. Our Batil-Patong has these two slices of red hotdog as accent on top of the pansit. The miki is freshly made in Tuguegarao.

It goes very well with a sauce mix of freshly sliced onions, vinegar, toyo and lots of calamansi.

It is very affordable and very filling. As much as we want to hop from one pansiteria to another, if you finish one bowl you’ll be guaranteed full for 4 hours.

Gretchen’s Special (P40) is a slight variation of the standard Batil-Patong. The toppings are lechon carahay, chicken, mixed vegetables, egg on top and an option to have liver on top for additional P10. It is a fusion of Batil-Patong and Pancit Cabagan pansit.

Gretchen’s was awarded as one of the cleanest pansiteria in town so we decided to eat here.

  4. I’d never heard of this pancit before! This is what I appreciate about your site, Anton. You travel so often, and to places I haven’t been to, so I learn more about all the undiscovered things in our country. Thanks! 🙂

  5. Somebody over at MarketManila was just asking about these. I agree with Katrina, this is what I like about your blog too- the sheer variety of topics and places you go to. Although the topic of this post I know very well, a lot are about things I’ve never seen or experienced before and I probably never will. So thanks too =)

  6. I’m a huge fan of pancit and I luuurve batil patong and pancit hab-hab in Lukban. Tuguegarao has amazing longganisa, too. We had it for breakfast 3 days straight. ;p

  10. Anton, i discovered one hole in the wall shop selling this kind of pancit. Coming from South luzon express way, take a left at President Quirino ave. After the Angel Linao stoplight start looking at the right side of the road. You will find a carinderia type of shop with the sign saying “special pancit ng cagayan. The special order is only P65 complete with soup and one plate is actually good for 2. I’ve tried this 3 times and coming back for more. Unfortunately only 1 parking space is available.

  11. You’re welcome, don’t be turned off lang kasi its kinda like a carinderia. Pero clean naman. They have a new signage “Jibs Pancit Batil-Patong”. Looking forward to your review.
    More power! My wife and I love your blogs!
