Pancit or pansit is the term for noodles in Filipino cuisine. Noodles were introduced into the Philippines by the Chinese and have since been adopted and used regularly. The consumption of the long noodles is believed to ensure a long life in those who eat the dish, that is why Pansit is always served during special occasions in Philippines especially during birthdays. Thin rice noodles mixed with chicken, pork, shrimp, cabbage and carrots and then seasoned with a light soy sauce are the ingredients for a tasty pansit guisado.
