How to cook Pancit Habhab

In this Filipino dish, we are going to make the popular Pancit Habhab Recipe also known as Pancit Lucban from the Province of Quezon wherein this pancit version originated. Pancit Habhab is not like any other pancit recipe that we all know, since it is prepared and served in a different way. Though, it has some ingredients like the usual pancit recipe such as, shrimp, pork, carrots, pechay and sayote, Pancit Habhab uses miki Lucban it is a type of dried noodles but not the same as the pancit canton.

This dish is eaten without using any utensils since it is traditionally served on a banana leaf. The Pancit Habhab is conveniently rolled inside banana leaf and all you have to do is push the noodles to your mouth. This is usually drizzled with vinegar before serving.

      no problem if you use the fork, the reason it was served without fork and used only banana leaves because this dish is traditionally sold on the streets and the vendor do not provide fork.
