Growing up this is one of my favorite noodles in every special occasion I go to. This is also what my mama will always cook with Lumpiang Shanghai, Fried Chicken and Puto.. Its a common menu you will always see on a typical Pinoy birthday party, its a comfort food. They say pancit also symbolizes longer life because of the long strand noodles. Happy cooking!
