Another place we tried for lunch was Emaimelei Restaurant, which was located behind the town's shopping center.
This place was packed with locals when we arrived...the menu was pretty "intense" because there were so many things that I had never seen or heard of before.
From the menu, I managed to pick out pinakbet and pancit--envisioning a dry noodle, I ordered Pancit Canton. And after asking the waitress what it was, Satoshi ordered Pancit Lomi. Both US$8.50.
The waitress taking our order was almost to the point of laughing when we ordered, probably because we were ordering two starches...
Anyway, when the orders came out they were HUGE! Pancit Lomi---a big steaming bowl of soup with udon in it and lots of seafood (mostly shrimp and squid), pork, some cabbage, won bok and carrots. The soup reminded me of egg drop soup and probably could feed a family of 4 or more...
Pancit Canton was like fried noodles except it tasted like it had been sauteed in butter or something. This had large pieces of pork and some cabbage, carrots and green onion.
Needless to say, it was way too much food for the two of us. The soup style pancit was definitely better than the fried noodle style...We ate up the soup and wrapped up the fried noodles for our dinner.
