Let’s be real, seeing that mountain of crispy noodles slowly collapse from the lava-like pouring of rich, orange shrimp sauce—that’s the true reason we order Manam‘s Crispy Pancit Palabok (and okay, it tastes pretty great, too). We hacked the all-day pancit dish so you can replay the satisfying sight again and again. At least, until you run out of the stuff.
The sauce packs a strong shrimp-y flavor, but the mix of noodles, seafood, and chicharon cuts through it well enough to give a balanced bite each time. We recommend using spicy chicharon for this recipe to add some heat.
