Ang mga Pancit sa Bataan

Did you know that pancit is from Hokkien pian i sit which means "something conveniently cooked fast"? Now you know. Thank you wikipedia.

Pancit #1
Pancit Luglog from Mang Kulot and Aling Aida's in Balagtas, Orion, Bataan
(Near Orion National High School and Orion Public Market)
(047) 244 5028

 Mang Kulot is not so kulot now, is he?

 A bilao of Pancit Luglog good for 15 people (Php 350)

Pancit luglog is like pancit palabok but with thicker noodles. It is topped with that orangey sauce, shrimps, and hard-boiled eggs.

 A simple menu

Mang Kulot and Aling Aida also offers spaghetti, sphabok (which I think is palabok using spaghetti instead of bihon), and sandwiches. But it looks like their specialty is the pancit luglog. The pancit luglog/spaghetti/sphabok can be ordered per plate (Php 25 to 35) or by bilao that can serve 6 (Php 200) to 35 people (Php 700).

Pancit #2
Pancit Guisado from Estrella's Eatery
63 Naval St., Cupang North, Balanga City, Bataan
(047) 237 4935

 A bilao of Pancit Guisado good for 15 people (Php 400)

Estrella's Pancit Guisado is topped with veggies (carrots, stringbeans, cabbage), hard-boiled eggs, and the diced and deep fried pork rind (kinupusan in Visayan).

The other pancit offerings of Estrella are luglog, spabok, canton, pancit malabon, lomi and mami. The former four, including guisado, can be bought by bilao (Php 300 to Php 500).

Clockwise from top left: Monggo, ube, and mais kalamay ng Cupang

Had too much pancit? You can also try the Kalamay ng Cupang at Php 10 each at Estrella's Eatery. They have monggo (mung beans), mais (corn), and ube (purple yam). All topped with (Tagalog) latik.
