Max's Pancit Canton

Pancit Canton is ever present on every Filipino dining table at every occasion, from birth to death and in between. While I am more of a Pancit Bihon kind of girl, I couldn't say no to my mother when she's craving for Max's Pancit Canton. She cooks a mean Pancit Canton at home but taking her to Max's to eat Pancit Canton is a real treat for her---it's probably her comfort food.

Like you, I've tasted different versions of Pancit Canton---from the typical turo-turo to Aristocrat, from Buddy's to Ado's to Ma Mon Luk, Panciteria San Jacinto to Dahlia --a motel in Pasig (pancit aficionados swear Dahlia's pancit canton is legendary). But my mom's favorite is not bad at all--it's actually delicious and not drowned in oil. I suspect my mother has some nice, unforgettable memory that goes with Max's pancit canton.:p

I, too, have a fond memory that comes with Max's pancit canton. Back in college, pagdating ng STFAP allowance namin, we all go to Max's for its pack-o-lunch (forgot the term) that has chicken and pancit canton in it. In my family naman, my father cooks pancit canton the best! He's so magarbo when it comes to the ingredients, hindi matipid.

We Ate This!

Naku ang sarap, paborito ko din yan pancit cantoon? Masarap ba pancit cantoon ng Max?? curious lang hehehe!?

Luna Miranda said...

hi, Al. i don't like Max's fresh lumpia--it's boring. fresh lumpia needs lots of garlic and shrimps.:p
