Homegrown Dishes at Inay Ag Pancit

Homegrown and regional noodles cuisines are served at Intay Ag Pancit . It is an old house built around 1969 on about 500 square meter lot in 51 Cenacle Drive, Sanville Subdivision near Fernwood Garden and near Visayas Avenue in Quezon City .

 

Intay Ag Pancit means ” Tara mag Pancit ” tayo in the local language . Ms. Bangs Zaldivar the proprietor envisioned their homegrown and well-loved pancit from Cagayan province and northern provinces of Ilocos .

The place is quite big since it used to be an old house an can accommodate between 40 to 60 people at any given time. The place is perfect for its rustic and natural light. One can also pre-book this place which is ideal for small family gathering, pre-wedding nuptial , seminar, workshop and corporate meetings.

The place had a soft opening about a month ago and had attracted clientele from as far as Novaliches, Fairview, Valenzuela, Marikina and nearby places.

Breakfast Meals

For those who wanted a taste of breakfast, They have a flavorful bangus meal at Php 129 , carabao tapa with rice and egg at Php 150 ( ideal for sharing and add additional rice)  , adobo with rice at Php 90 and longganisa meal with rice and scrambled egg with shredded longganisa meat for just Php 90

Different Types of Noodles from Cagayan

Pancit Cabagan–  cooked in pork broth, vegetables like carrots and cabbage, ground pork meat, lechon kawali with boiled chicken eggs. This noodle dish is best served hot and mixing calamansi sauce, soy sauce , vinegar , chopped white onions and for those who like spicy- chopped chilies.  The noodles are made from hand-pulled miki type noodles. According to some local culinary historians, The original dish was said to have come from Amoy, China . Local people from Cabangan, Isabela  province learn to adapt and changed some of the ingredients which are locally available .

The dish best shared between 2 to 3 person  ( Php 100 ) per serving .

Pancit Niladdit – hand-pulled flat type of egg noodles . This noodle dish originated from Lal-Lo, Cagayan province . The noodles are cooked in chicken broth with toppings of shredded chicken meat, dried shrimp ( hibi), chopped carrots, topped with onion rings . Best eaten with calamansi and soy sauce mixture.

The dish is best shared between 2 to 3 people ( Php 100) per serving.

Pancit Batil- Patong – It got its name from the way the ingredients are presented topping poach egg (patung) together a side serving of egg drop soup (batil) . The egg drop soup is normally poured on top of the noodles and served hot. It is accompanied with crushed chicharon ( pork rinds ) , mung bean sprouts,   lechon kawali and chopped spring onions.

The dish originate from Tuguegarao , Cagayan province. Side condiment of soy sauce, chopped  white onions, chili and calamansi typically accompanies the dish. ( Php 100 ) per serving.

I prefer the Pancit Cabagan and Pancit Nilaaddit compared to Pancit Batil -Patong
