Oriental Lomi is an easy soup dish composed of round miki noodles, Chinese sausage, pork, and veggies. This version is more of the Chinese version and it is easier to prepare compared to the famous Batangas lomi. What I liked about this version aside from its ease of preparation is the delicious taste.
Oriental Lomi, as far as I am concerned, can be consumed anytime of the day. I intentionally had this for lunch, and it was really good. There were some leftovers, so I had to place it in the fridge for later use. I had half of what’s left for dinner and the rest for breakfast the next day.
The Chinese sausage is essential for this recipe because it gives this lomi version its oriental flavor. You can substitute the pork with chicken and you can also try to add other appropriate vegetables that you want.
