Gary To: The Lomi King
The name of a favorite noodle-based local delicacy is taken from a decidedly Chinese ancestor. Lomi, after all, does indeed sound a lot like lo mein. The former is ubiquitous enough Filipino noodle based pancit variant, unmistakably Chinese in origins; and the latter, which in Cantonese literally means 'stirred noodles,' is a dish made of wheat flour noodles mixed with meat and seefood. The name Lomi King would have been a misnomner, however, had lomi not been the main attraction. Indeed, the restaurant started to attract its own market niche."The noodles were handmade." Gary says proudly. "The kikiam and meatballs were made from fresh meat. We didn't use frozen products; and definitely no chemicals.
