Pancit, mami and other noodles dishes of the Philippines

Pancit or pansit is a very popular noodle dish of the Philippines. In fact, the Philippines has a lot of noodle dishes. After the longganisa series (which I have yet to complete), it's now time to talk about pancit, mami, at iba pa! Many localities have their own noodle dishes, pancit being the most popular of course.

  6. Tokayo,

    To add to your liset:

    2. Atay con Misua- Binondo
    3. Chamisua (stir fried misua)-Binondo
    4. Lobihon- Binondo
    5. Maki Mi- Binondo

  7. Thanks tokayo! Looking forward to that pancit tour of Binondo! :D

  8. could we add udong as another pancit, or is it too chinese?

    a pancit tour? good idea! what about a pancit museum? "p

  9. in bohol, they call their pancit bam-i. it has bihon + miki noodles, topped with dried squid and tengang daga

  10. This post reminds me of the PCIJ article I came across years ago. It also dealt with pancit and noodles. Yum yum.
    Iloilo's pancit efuven is the least known among the 3 that came from the province since it just a generic noodle which you can use in a variety of ways.
