seafood noodle with stinky egg

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 πŸ™‚

    man, i want that! where did you get this? i used to get a really good seaweed salad from my favorite japanese restaurant. it was also seasoned with vinegar. no century eggs, though πŸ˜›

    you know, i brought pancit sotanghon to work once and my colleagues asked if it was seaweed, LOL! i think they were disappointed when i told them it was vermicelli, or rice, noodles. seaweed would have been more exotic, LOL!

    we tried a new chinese resto a few days ago. and it wasn't priced so expensively either, unlike if i were to get this in manila, or maybe there in NY. ha.ha.
