Nanay's Lomi -- sarapppppp!

Lomi is a popular food for Filipinos, it is a Filipino-Chinese dish na gawa sa egg noodles. Usually pag bumibili kami ng noodles sa market, maraming different sizes of noodles, lahat halos are called miki but with different sizes. The thick one ang pang "lomi".

This has always been one of my favorites, I always ask my Nanay to cook for me, especially during rainy days.

Nanay's lomi is always the best!
