Batchoy Tagalog

Batchoy Tagalog is one of the variants of the famous Filipino soup dish called Batchoy, the difference is that meats and offal used in this version are smoked and sometimes it uses a misua as its noodles. Pork blood is also added in this dish where it can be coagulated or poured directly on the soup. I know this is not for everyone due to the different offal used but trust me this is one good soup and it does not taste like how it sounds, so if you are brave enough I dare you to give this a shot and let me know how it goes.

  9. I would love to try this recipe, but I’m not sure if even the Asian markets around here would have the pork blood. I’m pretty adventurous, but the shops around here aren’t always. It definitely looks yummy!

  10. There’s no doubt in my mind, that you could truly make any ingredient look amazing! Truly amazing and though I’ve never tried this, your picture makes me think I just might one day!
