Pancit Malabon is a traditional Filipino dish that originated in the city of Malabon, hence the name. Like most pensets, it is usually offered at festivals or on special occasions, a flat round container of woven bamboo, rattan, or wood, which adds to the “local feel” of the dish.
It is made from coarse rice or corn starch noodles and a yellow-orange sauce that adds flavor and color to the Achivet (anato seeds), shrimp broth and shrimp fat. Rows of toppings reflect the abundant beaches of the area where fishing was once an important source of livelihood, and it is common to find it heavier than sea crops.
