Another example of the Filipino’s fascination with noodle dishes is Pancit palabok. Unlike other noodles in the Filipino style, however, pancit palabok is smothered in a sweet shrimp sauce and filled with a delicious mishmash of smoked fish flakes, crushed pork cracklings, crisp bacon, boiled shrimp, fried garlic pieces, hard-boiled eggs, and green onions.
Pancit is a Filipino term for noodles. Chinese colonists in the archipelago brought noodles into the Philippines early on.
Through the years, they have been fully incorporated into local cuisine. Today, many variations and styles include noodle recipes.
Today, other pancit recipes include different meats as toppings, depending on a region’s best harvest. For more international recipes, click here.
