I was watching an episode of Pinasarap the other day and one particular dish piqued my interest. Pancit Sabsab is a variety of Filipino pancit which is very popular in Taal Batangas. It is sold like a “pan de sal” in the morning where people line up for their takeaway pancit fix.

Pancit Sabsab is a noodle dish prepared by stir-frying pancit and sotanghon with meat and vegetables served in a balisungsong or cone-shaped banana leaf.

I believe this dish is similar to “Bam-i”, a popular noodle dish in Mindanao prepared exactly the same way but may vary with the meat and vegetables added.

This dish is a version I created, inspired by the authentic Pancit Sabsab dish. I must say its really delicious and I hope you also try it and let me know what you think! 🙂
