Kap Esing's Pancit Molo 

Kap Esing's Pancit Molo in Iloilo

Photo by Southwest Travel and Tours

Kap Esing is synonymous to the famous Pancit Molo soup popular in Iloilo. And the best way to experience the iconic bowl of the mouthwatering Ilonggo dish is at their homey and cozy compound situated at Brgy. San Jose, Molo in Iloilo City. 

Inspired by the Chinese dish made from wonton soup, Kapitan Esing Villanueva concocted his own version that is still being enjoyed by locals and tourists across the country. Although he is no longer a captain of his barangay, he’s still being acknowledged as Kap Esing accompanied by the pride of Iloilo - Kap Esing’s Pancit Molo. 

Their Pancit Molo is a local wonton soup dish made from ground pork dumplings and shrimp dumplings filled inside a wonton wrapper, with shredded chicken swimming in a hot and savory chicken broth seasoned with black pepper and spring onions, and topped with fried garlic. This Ilonggo dish is not complete without their special broth. 

Aside from their pancit molo soup, other must tries are their fresh lumpiang ubod and sweet potato empanada. You can also witness how they make and prepare their own wonton wrappers when you dine in their restaurant. 


Best time to visit

It's recommended to head to the restaurant before 12 NN or 6 PM to avoid the lunch and dinner rush. The establishment is open daily from 8:30 AM to 8 PM.
