How to make Pancit Habhab. Pancit Habhab also known as Pancit Lucban originated from the Quezon province. Pancit Habhab looks similar to Pancit Canton, but there are not the same. I find Pancit Habhab more delicious and tasty compare to other Filipino noodles I have used.
Pancit Habhab or Pancit Lucban is eaten out of banana leaf but can be optional if you don't have access to it, often top with vinegar. For this recipe, we used pork belly and pork liver. Feel free to add your type of meat based on your preferences. I also used carrots, sayote and bok choy or pechay. Simple right? Give this recipe a try! Let me know how you like it.
