Goodmorning,Here is what i had for breakfast today Pancit Palabok and slices of bread.

But Im sure glad there is pancit palabok straight from the market and it is my favorite, together with my other 100 favorite food,haha.
Ok I went to look for the recipe, so just incase someone would crave for this which you can actually do from home.
Although there are other sites that you can visit to find instructions on how to do it, I came across this one list it down for you.
Pancit Palabok is good for breakfast or Snack Time. You can actually eat it anytime.
1 pack (1 lb) rice noodles (bihon)
2 tbsp cooking oil
1/2 lb ground pork
1 tbsp anatto powder
3 cups pork broth
1 piece shrimp cube
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup boiled pork, thinly sliced and cut into small pieces
2 pieces fried firm tofu (tokwa), cubed
½ cup tinapa flakes (smoked fish)
½ cup chicharon (pounded)
2 hard boiled eggs,sliced
½ cup cooked shrimps (boiled or steamed)
1/4 cup green onion or scallions, finely chopped
3 tbsp fried garlic
2 pieces lemon, sliced (or 6 to 8 pieces calamansi)
Soak the rice noodles in water for about 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Cook the sauce by heating a saucepan. Pour-in the cooking oil.
When the oil is hot enough, put-in the ground pork and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes
Dilute the annato powder in pork broth then pour the mixture in the saucepan. Bring to a boil (If you are using anatto seeds, soak them first in 3 tbsp water to bring-out the color)
Add the shrimp cube and stir and simmer for 3 minutes
Add the flour gradually while stirring.
Add the fish sauce and ground black pepper then simmer until sauce becomes thick. Set aside.
Meanwhile, boil enough water in a pot.
Place the soaked noodles in a strainer (use metal or bamboo strainer) then submerge the strainer in the boiling water for about a minute or until the noodles are cooked. (make sure that the noodles are still firm)
Remove the strainer from the pot and drain the liquid from the noodles.
Place the noodles in the serving plate.
Pour the sauce on top of the noodles then arrange the toppings over the sauce.
Serve with a slice of lemon or calamansi. Share and enjoy!
