Regional Pancit Favorites only at 'Pancit Center'

Your 1st and only pancit specialist!

Who among you attributed you mom’s traditional pancit as the standard of pancit perfection or atleast the only pancit you’ve known in your entire life? Guisado and canton perhaps are the two kinds of pancit you’re only familiar with. Well, here in the Philippines, as much as 7107 islands we have, we might have 7107 ways of cooking it. 

Pancit Center brings here in Manila the culture and tradition of each province through its respective pancit in very affordable price. Venturing Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, Pancit Center has more than 27 variants of specialty pancit all over the Philippines and other noodle dishes. Last Sunday, together with Ramil, Pinoy Adventurista, Mike Laagan and Rina we went to one of its branch, located in Pioneer St. Cor. Shaw Blvd., Kapitolyo, Pasig City for a major pancit food trip.

We were welcomed by Sir Marc, the General Manager and Ms. Mariz of Pancit Center, they introduced to us the brief history of their business and let us experience the Hot Bowls Regional Sampler as the 1st on their menu. It's consist of Bantangas Lomi, La Paz Batchoy, Pancit Miki and Kinalas.
