#Recipe of the Day: Pansit Habhab

Pansit habhab is the ALL-TIME favorite merienda of people living in Quezon province particularly in Lucban and Lucena City. Yes, I am a certified Lucenahin!

Pansit habhab is basically made of dried flour noodles. It’s our own type of miki. It is thin and brown in color. This is popularly served in Buddy’s Restaurant (Sponsor please, haha!) and in Lucban or Lucena, pansit habhab are being sold in streets or peddled around the area.

This is usually eaten without any utensils. It is served in a banana leaf and then you eat it directly from that. When you say habhab that means to eat suctioning the food like pigs. Yes, you read it right. Hahaha!
