Pancit Canton Face-off

Instant pancit canton is an all time favorite of Filipinos, that's in my case.  It was launched in the 90's and eating this instant noodle just bring backs my childhood memories.  I enjoy it as is but I love it with plain white rice.  You can also enjoy it with hot pandesal.  It is my childhood afternoon snack and a good way to ease my hunger.  Have a hard boiled egg on the side and it's perfect.

Pork Ribs and Young Jackfruit Soup

My dad woke up early and went to the market to buy some ingredients for our lunch today.  My mom told me that he will be cooking pork ribs and langka soup.  Langka or jackfruit is a sweet delicious fruit found in tropical countries and luckily Philippines is one of them.  But did you know that young jackfruit can be incorpprated into main dishes?  The most common dish is the ginataang langka or jackfruit in coconut milk.  I love it spicy and paired with fried fish.  However, my dad being a pure blood Ilonggo likes it in soups.  He cooked it with kadios and pork and its equally tasty.
