What’s Pancit?

Pancit broadly refers to different types of uncooked noodles, but often means a popular stir-fried noodle dish. These noodles can be made from mung beans, rice flour, and even egg-based noodles. Originally, noodles were introduced to the Filipino people by traders from China in the 1500s. These noodles began as a way for factory workers in the Philippines to refuel for their work. From there, these noodles quickly transitioned to street food, and then a food offered in restaurants around the Philippines named panciterias.
