Pancit Canton is a Filipino Noodle dish with chinese heritage. Pancit has Hokkien origines, pian i sit which literally means “convenient food. For me and most other Filipinos pancit means noodles
In the Philippines this dish is usually served at birthday and other celebrations, the noodles represent long life and good health, but the noodles used must not be cut short so not to corrupt the symbolism.
A typical Pancit Canton makes use of sliced pork, sausage, shrimp and different kinds of vegetables.
