Iloili, La Muy Noble Ciudad or The Most Noble City, a title given by the Queen Regent of Spain in the 20th century to Iloilo city. Is it because of the their impressive churches of because or the La Paz Batchoy? I highly doubt its the latter although if the Queen Regent of Spain ever get to taste Iloilo’s infamous pork noodle soup I am pretty sure she’ll think the title was well deserved, it was for me anyway.
Ted’s La Paz Batchoy in Iloilo has got to be one of the yummiest noodle soups I’ve had in my entire life. Yes, it could easily rival Vietnam’s Pho.
We were en route to Bacolod’s Masskara festival, so when I had this trip planned I made sure to add 2 extra days to have time to discover the beautiful Iloilo, and boy it did not disappoint.
