Pancit Malabon


Pancit Malabon

Pancit Malabon is a noodle dish with assorted seafood associated with Malabon, Metro Manila. Malabon and the neighboring area of Navotas are a major entry and processing point for fishing boats bringing in their fresh catch. Known in Malabon itself as pancit bame, the dish traditionally uses dry firm fat noodles made of 70% rice and 30% flour made in neighboring Bulacan. This is then combined with a sauce consisting of shrimp broth and crab roe and then topped with boiled eggs and assorted seafood like shrimp, smoked fish flakes, oysters, mussels, and squid as well as chopped cabbage and ground pork rind cracklings. For large take-out orders the noodles are customarily packaged in circular woven native trays called bilao.
