Pansit Cabagan and Pansit Batil Patung plus the Bignay Wine

When exploring a certain place, I and my travel hubby has different object of interest. While I am fascinated with the tourist spots, he is engrossed with the food specialty and delicacies. And for our Cagayan-Isabela-Kalinga tour, we have tasted (and have differentiated) panstil batil patung of Cagayan and pansit cabagan of Isabela.

Well actually, there was not much of a distinction. They have the same ingredients, same noodle used and they almost tasted the same way. For the appearance, the egg of batil patung is shredded fried while cabagan has sliced hardboiled egg. They also serve the sauce of pansit batil patung separately unlike with the pansit cabagan.

And for our thirst, we tried the bignay wine from Kalinga. Bignay is a fruit similar to a grape. The wine tasted sweet like that of mompo wine use by priests. Just be careful not to drink a lot because it has 10% alcohol content that might get you inebriated.
