Row’s Batchoy House is a hole-in-the-wall eatery offering authentic batchoy. Batchoy is a traditional Ilonggo dish that originally came from the La Paz district of Iloilo. It is made of pork offal, miki, scallions, golden brown garlic, a raw egg, and crushed chicharon. The recipe used at the place came from Iloilo itself. Customers can choose to have the Regular or Special batchoy while big groups may want to have the Super batchoy, which is served in a large bowl.
The place itself is located at the ground floor of the house owned by the family of Romero Vergara, a well-known stylist and makeup artist. Normalita, the sister of Vergara, manages the place. The decorations add to the character of the place, which offers a rather homey ambience for its customers.
