Deco’s La Paz Batchoy is still contending with Ted’s Old Timer La Paz Batchoy and Netong’s as to whose batchoy is the original. But it doesn’t really matter anymore; they are all delicious and their versions of this noodle soup garnished with pork organs and pork cracklings have won the taste buds of Ilonggos and tourists alike.

While you wait for your bowl of batchoy at Deco’s Pasalubong Center, you can shop for items like shirts, delicacies, and keepsakes. Consider it a bonus that the store is just beside Dulgie’s Cake and Pastries—a haven for those who have a sweet tooth.
