Its primary ingredient is the noodles which also are referred to as Pancit Bihon(white colored noodles) and Pancit Canton(yellow colored noodles), the Bihon is usually much thinner while the canton is a thicker noodle, both tend to be a little sticky. There are many flavors to choose when selecting a this dish in a restaurant or when prepping it at the house. A personal favorite is a combination of Vegetables & Seafood with the noodles. This is a Combination of seafood and veggies, which is good for the diet. Other versions can include chicken or pork or squid as the main additional ingredient besides the noodles.
