ATMOSPHERE AND A DELICIOUS ROUND OF PANSIT CABAGAN
Our second stop during our visit in Isabela was another rustic church in the town of San Pablo, just a few minute’s drive from Tumauini, and was named St. Paul’s Church. This was a much more atmospheric church, with another spectacular bell tower reminiscent of several churches in Ilocos. After St. Paul’s, we proceeded to the town of Cabagan, famous for their noodle specialty called Pansit Cabagan! Just check out the photo! Delicious! The pansit itself is home-made, as we were ushered into a bodega where the “processing” took place. Makes me wonder if there’s such a place within Metro Manila that offers Pansit Cabagan! As for the pleasant surprise of discovering jewels from the churches of Isabela, I was pretty smug. Even my friend didn’t realize they had gems within their midst. You can just imagine the vast number of undiscovered, albeit spectacular churches in that area!
