thought those were noodles? think again! when they were being laid on the table i almost told the waiter that we didn’t order pancit palabok (pancit palabok in a chinese resto?!). then i realized that we ordered seaweed and century eggs, one of my most favorite chinese menu appetizers. the seaweed, naturally neutral in taste, were seasoned with vinegar, salt and chili, then surrounded with slices of century eggs. this is served cold by the way. the seaweed had a chewy texture, and had the right amount of acidity and spice in them. the century eggs were rich and deep-flavored. all in all a very good appetizer.
guess what we ordered for the main course. pancit canton (egg noodles) with assorted seafood. ha.ha. talk about being redundant on the dining table 🙂
