Pansit Malabon is a flavorful noodle dish that originated in the City of Malabon. This dish resembles the Pancit Palabok but the array of seafood toppings and the traditional tough and thick rice noodles distinguishes this dish.
The reason why this noodle dish seems like a complete seafood sampler is because of the city’s location. Malabon is situated in a coastal area wherein most of the major fish markets are located. The city is also a few minutes away from the huge fish ports of Navotas.
Some of the common seafood ingredients of Pancit Malabon are shrimp, smoked fish flakes (tinapa flakes), and squid. Oysters (talaba) and mussels (tahong) can also be used depending on your preference.
