Pancit – Filipino Fried Noodles



Fried noodles are very popular in many Asian countries and they are one of the best seller of travelers.

This Filipino version is a very tasty version, perhaps less exotic than the Thai or the Chinese ones, but for sure not less delicious.

With this dish you can prepare a full meal using only a wok (or a large skillet) and you can adapt the veggies with what you have on hand. You can also change the kind of noodle.

A quick and comforting meal!

  1. This was an excellent recipe. I increased the veggies and decreased the chicken and served this for a really yummy lunch. The directions are perfect and the pancit was really yummy and flavorful. I’ll keep this recipe for sure! Thank you!

  2. This is a wonderful dish! I love Asian fried noodle dishes anyway, so this was exactly “my thing”. DH was particularly excited about the lime (had no calamansi) squeezed over the noodles. Thanks for sharing, I’ll make this again!
    Made it for Culinary Quest 2016 for teal IHπ for Philippines
