Bac's Pata Haus

Posted by JayPee Tuesday, July 13, 2010

If La Paz has the iconic batchoy and Molo has that wonton soup called Pancit Molo, then the district of Mandurriao might as well claim pata and kansi to be it's contribution to Iloilo City's gastronomic delights. The district boasts numerous hole in the wall restaurants that serves the best of these two dishes.Zeroing in with pata, one of the most popular patahan in Mandurriao is Bac's. Located along the highway that connects Manudurriao with Molo (near the entry to the old Iloilo airport), this native restaurant boasts of a clientele that ranges from the simple passersby to those coming with "security". Pata refers to both the pigs legs (hind and front including knuckles) and that soup dish it has become after slowly boiling them in spices and seasoning. Usually it's the latter that comes to mind. And why not, the sight of this soft and melts in your mouth pata plus the thick, sticky and sour broth makes it an instant sinful desire. You'd wish they'd also serve unlimited rice since sabaw pa lang ulam na.
