Updated on April 13, 2018

For Long Life

Aside from rice which is a source of carbohydrates, Filipinos are also fond of "pancit" or noodle dishes and pasta. On Special Occasions especially birthdays, these dishes are always present since it's an old belief that when you prepare this kind of food you'll have a longer life.

Pancit Palabok


8 oz pack Rice Noodles

For the sauce:

Minced garlic (1 clove)

Minced Onion (1 medium size bulb)

1 can Tuna flakes (soak in brine or olive oil)

2 cups broth (shrimp broth from 1 shrimp flavored broth cube)

2 tbsp cornstarch

Any yellow Food coloring (preferably "atsuete" or annatto)

For the Toppings and Garnishing

Onion leaves (not the hybrid type)

3 Boiled eggs (sliced)

Crush Chicharon (the crispy skin of a pig dried, salted and fried)

Cooked shelled shrimps (optional)

NOTE: Cook the sauce first since if you cook the noodles it will get firm when exposing to air. Anyway, you can cook it for just a few minutes.


1. Dissolve 2 tbsp cornstarch, and the food coloring to 2 cups broth and set aside.

2. Saute minced garlic and onion in a little oil or butter with the tuna flakes.

3. Put the broth after and let it simmer for a few minutes stirring occasionally until the sauce thickens. Add a little salt and pepper to taste.

4. Cook the noodles by boiling it for 5 mins or until cook.

5. When cook put in a strainer to drain.

6. Lay the noodles on a platter and top with the sauce. Garnish with boiled eggs, chicharon, shrimps and onion leaves. You can add a little pepper and "patis" (fish sauce) depending on your taste. Sprinkle some calamansi (lime) or lemon to have a tangy taste to it.
