To H. Larios #12.... Any ingredients that you think of for pancit is optional. Use fried tofu or fish cake in place shrimps. Taste as good as long as you have fresh sangkap.

canton noodles
do you put the canton noodles in its dried state or do you soften the noodles or cook the noodles first before putting it in with the meat mixture? I tried putting it in dried and the noodles crumbled apart.

possible answer
Crystal, it could well have been Pancit Canton like this recipe, but with oyster sauce instead of the soy sauce. Pancit is a Chinese inspired dish and with such a large Chinese influence here in the Philippines some chefs may very well cook it this way. Actually that sounds like a good idea, I'll try it next time though this recipe is great.
