Deco’s The Father of all Batchoys

The father of all batchoys is Federico “Deco” Guillergan, Sr. The history of batcgoy dates back to the years before the second World War broke out. It was Deco, a butcher who worked at the La Paz market, who gave birth to what is now known as La paz Batchoy, which is named after the district in Iloilo City where it originates.



During that time there were a  lot of Chinese businessman in the city. That gave him the idea to concoct this clear noodle (meke) soup. The modern day batchoy has undergone several modifications. The first batchoy was made of meke (native noodles) submerged into a hot clear soup of boiled bone marrow, meats, guinamos (local shrimp paste) and topped with garlic. Eventually, pork innards and sliced liver were added. The last innovation to be included in the famous batchoy was the chicharon, making it more delicious. It is best paired with fresh egg, puto or pandesal.
The people of La Paz first tasted the original Ilonggo soup for only 10 to 20 centavos per bowl served inside the La Paz Public Market on a counter-type setting.



Deco has passed on the baton to his sons since then on. That is when several Deco’s Batchoy outlets started to sprout out like in España Manila, Iloilo Capitol, Paglaum Sports Complex in Bacolod City and Iloilo Central Market.
This original Ilonggo specialty is so popular that some restaurants in Iloilo and Manila carry the dish La Paz batchoy in their menu. Now there are even instant noodles manufactured already.
Many years later (2007) businessman Edgar “Injap” Sia bought Deco’s Lapaz Batchoy whose branches are now in Lasalette Building along Valeria Street, Robinsons Place Iloilo and Robinsons Place Jaro. (Outlets outside this said places is not a part to the Deco’s brand)

“We are revolutionizing the look of a batchoyan in Iloilo to make it more exciting to our guests. Given the fact that Iloilo is very progressive, Ilonggos today are more modern and many tourists are visiting our city. We have created  a look that has  an inviting ambiance that people from all walks of life will be happy to eat there,’’ says Marichel Teves-Magalona, licensed operator of Deco’s Original La Paz Batchoy.

Travel: Lovely Rosma Pebbled Cove Resort, San Joaquin Iloilo

What can we make if we talk to God in a peaceful place? 
A millenial like me would always want something fun and nice after many days of hectic schedule. I could just frown if I am rushed and pressured by others; to live life fast is something I persoanlly don't like. I don't want to compete with time. I believe that life must be enjoyed slowly.
Traveling is my medicine. It is my way to improve my self. It is one best way to I reflect and thank God, how He made my life so beautiful and perfect. Oh, how I love His gift these days and forever; the "luxury of time". Now, I can definitely say yes to most opportunities coming my way.
