The pancit habhab is one of the signature dishes of Quezon province, and people usually eat this tasty dish not with utensils, but with banana leaves and a serving of vinegar, creating its distinct taste.
Pancit Habhab Ingredients: Miki Lucban (dry), pork belly thinly sliced and chopped, beef broth, shrimp (optional), sliced pig’s liver, sliced chayote, bok choy or pechay, snap pea or snow pea, shredded carrots, sliced onion, crushed garlic, cooking oil, soy sauce, ground black pepper, banana leaf (cleaned and cut into 5×5 pieces)
Lost Villa has their own version of the pancit habhab depending on the preference of their customers, who have the option of having shrimp or no shrimp in their dish. By going to the tropical-themed resort, which is just 4-5 hours away from Manila, people will find not just a place for relaxation, but also get a chance to savor their own spin on one of Quezon’s signature dishes!
