"Filipino food is a fusion of different flavours which evolves through various influences like Spanish, American, Chinese and other Asian countries. As we adapted and concocted these dishes it has created diverse flavours that are uniquely Filipino seasoned and spiced by our rich culture".

Lomi is another chinese-filipino noodle dish, and is best served hot. I like eating this with soysauce, calamansi and crushed red chili peppers as condiment. If you happen to pass by Batangas area, you definitely wouldn't miss restaurants or lomi house which serves this.
But if you want to do it at home, here's how....

250g fresh egg noodles
8-10 cups meat or chicken broth
1 cup thinly sliced meat, chicken or pork
8 pcs kikiam, sliced
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/4 cup chopped carrots
ground peppercorn, to taste
fish sauce or salt, to taste
2 eggs, beaten
1 tbsp cornstarch, dissolved in 1/4 cup water
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
2 tbsp oil


  • Heat oil in a pot, stir fry the kikiam until golden brown.Set aside.
  • In the same pan, saute onions and garlic, add meat, season with a little salt or fish sauce. Let simmer for about 2 minutes. Then add the meat broth. Cover and let boil for 8-10 minutes.
  • Add noodles, vegetables and kikiam. Simmer and cook for 3-5 minutes.
  • Thicken the soup with the dissolved cornstarch. then turn off the heat.
  • Slowly stir in the beaten eggs.
  • Serve steaming hot! Enjoy!
Note: You may also use shrimps or meatballs, depending on your preference.
