This is it, pancit!

A staple among Filipinos especially for those on a budget, pancit canton has been one of the go-to foods when you’re looking for something cheap, filling, and flavorful. On its own, pancit canton packs a punch, one that satisfies both those who are hungry and those who are craving for something salty (and sometimes sweet and spicy). Paired with other types of food, however, pancit canton becomes this dish that lends itself well to a variety of flavors.
