It was déjà vu. Same time last week, we were scrambling to get to our newfound pancit happiness at Bustillos in Manila. With new errands to accomplish, my buddy brought me to this panciteria that serves our favorite noodle dish in the world, and it’s in my hometown!
I know my Quezon City geography quite well (just don’t let me traverse the area of Fairview) and after many attempts of checking out three panciterias in the city, we didn’t find the yummy goodness we’ve been searching for (me dreaming of legit Pancit Batil Patong of Tuguegarao).
West Avenue corner Del Monte Avenue, Petron station being the landmark; I knew that place and after a swift jeepney ride from SM North EDSA, we arrived in no time. A few strides more and our feet led us to Weng’s Pancit Batil Patong – our rendezvous for the day.
I drooled as I was checking out their pancit batil patong on the menu. They have three serving options; Regular (60 pesos), Special (80 pesos – with chicharon) and Super Special (100 pesos – with chicharon and hotdog). It has always been our goal to try the best serving size so we opted for the loaded Super Special.
Our pancit arrived with the standard soup (patil) and onion-calamansi condiment (they use white onions instead of the red ones). I noticed that the sauce was overflowing which looked like the Pancit Cabagan of Isabela. The generous toppings and its aroma were very inviting.

Overall, we had a pleasant experience. It was a mediocre pancit but it made us happy, which is more important, I guess.
