Pancit Malabon

It's been a while since I last posted here on Cultural Connections. New month calls for new theme, and this month I will post pancit pictures! Although pancit (noodles) may have been from the Chinese, over the years, it has also became part of the Filipino cuisine.

Pancit Malabon

The Pancit Malabon was (I believe) derived from Pancit Luglog, and is native to Malabon, a city in Metro Manila. With is thick noodles made from rice, It's basically cooked the same way as the Pancit Palabok, although aside from the difference in the noodles used, the Pancit Malabon also has seafoods and other toppings different to its counterpart. The city of Malabon celebrates their annual Pancit Malabon festival every December.

The Pancit Malabon is my all time favorite pancit. I love its thick noodles and the mix of flavors from the vegetables and the seafoods. This one in the picture was bought from a food shop in Market One. It used mussels instead of the traditional squid, but it was still delicious. I just didn't like the big chunks of toasted garlic that were a little burnt, but overall this one was a great dish to eat.

I love pancit also and am not sure if it was this kind that I've tasted in Lucena. Forgot the name of their pancit there and we have to soak it in vinegar. Is this it?

Pacey, you're referring to Pancit Habhab! :D it's sooo good too! There's a resto in Manila (BUDDY'S) selling that kind of pancit. Yummy!!

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
