The most popular streetfood of course, is Pancit Lucban better known as Pancit Habhab . As the name implies, it is pancit or noodles made with rice flour, stir fried and mixed with vegetables, shrimp and pork and sometimes lechon. Habhab refers to the manner it is eaten. The noodles is served on a rectangular cut banana leaf which acts as a makeshift plate, then you must eat it using only your mouth {without the use of any utensils}.But before you do that, you must add a sprinkling of cane vinegar.

I took home some noodles from Lucban with a promise to try and cook pancit habhab at home….

There are many versions of longganisa but Lucban’s verison is one of the most popular and is actually one of our family’s favorite. It’s garlicky, made with pimenton and without sugar. I think they also set it out for  sometime to ferment a little, hence the hint of sourness in its taste.

Would you believe that sis bought five dozens of longganisa and made it fit inside her big bag. Yup..and we still have a dozen of these left in the freezer. But we bought ours at Eker & Ely.
