Food Friday

25 shared thoughts
Would you believe that for this noodle dish to taste really great you'd have to add vinegar? Yup. Vinegar. We were baffled at first, but it really tasted way better after vinegar was added.

That's Pancit Lucban (or Habhab) from Buddy's Pancit Lucban at Longganisang Lucban restaurant.

Food Friday Players:

ps. should have done this EONS ago: adding a backlink to those who played as my way of saying thanks for linking back. :)

*I don't think my other blog will be 'operational' real soon...and I don't think I have the time to make another blog, so Food Friday is here to stay. For now. I think. Many many thanks to those who have kept on playing! :)

Waaahhh I love pansit. Parang gusto ko yan matikman. But, I think I've tried pansit cooked that way, I mean with vinegar, 'cause one of my aunts love to try out pansit cooked in different ways.

The last time I had pansit was in October last year kaya mag-request ako this weekend. :((

Yes, pancit habhab has vinegar. I used to eat that ng maliliit pa kami in Lucena City. Same thing with Italian Pasta, mostly they added lemon or lime juice to make the taste better. Happy Friday!

thanks, blankPixels
...i hope you'll get your pancit fix this weekend! :)

thanks, Lani
...ah, so you're from Lucena? Would love to visit it someday. :)

thanks, 'Lene your grilled fish! nagutom jud ko, da! hehehe. adding salt to rice sounds good. i sometimes add salt to my calamansi, specially if i drink it straight without water...mas masarap. but am not sure if it's healthier, LOL. probably not. :P

thanks, LM
...i agree, it kinda grows on you once you try it. i still have to try their longganisa...i bet it will taste great with vinegar, too! ;)

thanks so much for playing again, ladies!
happy weekend! ♥

...yup, it tasted great! great with your shrimps! we tried another one, too, though wasn't sure if it was chami (like what cookiespink mentioned) and we actually liked it much better than the habhab. hahaha...
...btw, that flower shot was taken last year when my eldest gave me those flowers. :)

happy weekend! ♥

My mom cooks pancit habhab every time we would get packs of the raw pancit from our neighbor, but we still haven't tried adding vinegar to it. Hmmm... interesting!

thanks, Ms. Oggie
...yup, medyo weird adding vinegar to habhab, but it really made a big difference when it was added.

thanks, Jenn
...i have read of the special noodles being used for habhab, but haven't actually seen one yet. lucky you having a neighbor where you can get one!

thanks, Halie
...i believe there are quite a few Buddy's restaurant around. check them out when you can (hehe, free advertising from me! LOL).

thanks again, ladies!
happy weekend! ♥

Really? I tasted Pancit Habhab in Pasig and it's good but we never added vinegar in that pancit if I remember right :D That one from Lucban is really good according to my cousin's wife who also live in Quezon.

Here's my entry for this week:

our neighbor always give us dries noodles for this, and you are right, vinegar is better than calamansi, probably because of the noddles' taste

heres my entry
