Pancit Canton for our Filipino Food!



Few days ago I have posted the exotic filipino foods and it was a total, ahm.. let me just say, it made me feel I don’t want to eat anything for days. But hey! I’m human and I do get hungry. So yeah few hours after I eat lots of meat.


Anyway, for today we have my sister’s all time favorite, the famous, the symbol of long life, one of the most common foods in the Philippines, it’s one and only, the best, Pancit Canton!  (I feel like I’m in a show and a Pancit canton mascot walks in the stage.)

My mom, sister and my brother have different Filipino food recipe versions. My mom is the original, my sister’s version is in a large serving my while my brother’s version is not too dry, not too wet and so many other varieties of mixtures that you’ll totally love it!

I really don’t know how to cook (just to be honest). I know how to eat though, but I don’t really know how to cook. Maybe fry eggs, cook instant noodles and fry the famous dried fish (also known as: tuyo). But mixing stuff? Cook, taste, and know what’s missing and what’s lacking? Uh-uh! Can’t do!

So that’s why I’m borrowing this Filipino food recipe from the website, All Favorite Recipe!

Before we start, did you know that when the noodles was created, it’s only purpose was for a design? Yeah, it’s not meant to be eaten, it’s just for display.

But anyway, here you go everyone! The Exotic Philippines Filipino food recipe for today, Pancit Canton!
