The best batchoy I’ve tasted was of course, in Bacolod. The sad thing is, it was a long time ago; I couldn’t remember the name of the restaurant where I had the delicious noodle soup. I suddenly missed it and since it’s beginning to rain, I thought we’d have this. Got the recipe from http://www.cooks-recipe.com.
