Ted's Old timer La Paz Batchoy

It was  rainy night when wifey and I decided to wander at SM food court to look for some foods to eat.  Since it's raining outside we prefer hot soup or noodles to warm our stomach. There we saw Ted's Old time La Paz Batchoy,  perfect food for that cold night.



We ordered extra super batchoy at Php 95.00 per bowl and I think that is their best seller.

To give a few background about Ted's:

Ted Lepura started making batchoy in the 1930's as a teenager. During those times he worked odd jobs just to make ends meet. The son of a poor peasant, he worked with different Chinese merchants where he discovered his culinary potential. With a working knowledge on making La Paz Batchoy from his work with a Chinese Merchant, he started to innovate and adjust the dish. That simple innovation was the basis of what became of the Lapaz Batchoy that we know today.

Back then, Ted became a peddler of just about anything including his Lapaz Batchoy which he noticed is gaining loyal patrons. That response gave him an idea. So after the war, in 1945 and with his savings of Php 10.00, he opened his first 5x5 small stall in the public market of La Paz , Iloilo . The first stall was simply made of nipa and bamboo and husband and wife team did all the work with assistance of their children.  Refer to this link for full story: Ted's Old Timer La Paz Batchoy
