Sandy Daza’s FoodPrints Goes to Batangas


FoodPrints, a culinary-cum-tourism show presented by Chef Sandy Daza, started its almost week-long shoot covering food delights in the Province of Batangas last 21 September in the city of Lipa. The show premiered on the Lifestyle Network on the 21st of September, the opening episode showcasing the foods and drinks of the Ilocos Region.

The production team has also wrapped up shooting for Bulacan, the episode of which is due to be aired early in October by the Lifestyle Channel.


The crew is also due to visit the municipality of Taal where it is scheduled to shoot demos of the making of the town’s famous tapa ang longganisa as well as a local bakery’s empanada.
In Lipa, the production team’s first stop was Aling Ninay’s, a hundred meters or so from the Lipa City Public Market, for the renowned glutinous rice (malagkit) products such as tamales, puto and bibingka.

After completing the shoot, the production team walked the short distance to the Panciteria de Lipa to cover the Batangas version of the pancit lomi, the original recipe for which was invented by the To family, owners of the panciteria.

The lomi is distinct not only for the flavour and thickness of its broth but also in that it does not contain vegetables.

The team was even allowed to shoot in the upper levels of the panciteria’s building where the miki (noodles) for the lomi are manufactured. This miki factory is something few patrons of the panciteria are even aware of, let alone have seen.

In continuation of the lomi story, the team drove the short distance to Sabang where Chef Sandy checked out the lomi and guisado of Liam’s, owned by Francis and Corrine Yuson.


The production team ended its first day of shooting at the Lipa Night Market, which comes to life every evening along P. Torres Street in the heart of the city.

While in Lipa, the crew also shot at Café de Lipa for the famous baraco coffee and at the Gotohan sa Barangay for the rice-less Batangas version of goto.

The crew is also due to visit the municipality of Taal where it is scheduled to shoot demos of the making of the town’s famous tapa ang longganisa as well as a local bakery’s empanada.


The team also hopes to cover maliputo fishing in the scenic lakeside municipality of San Nicolas, bulalo in a diner in San Jose and various restaurants and other spots in Batangas City.

Chef Sandy Daza’s FoodPrints airs every Saturday at 8:30 pm with replays on Sundays at 3 p.m., Tuesdays at 8 a.m., and Fridays at 2 p.m.
