As a Filipino raised here in the USA, I am so glad that while growing up in my parents' house, our mom cooked us home-cooked meals, both American and Filipino dishes. One of those dishes I have grown up with and instantly bring me back to the childhood days whenever I get near it is a classic Filipino dish, called "Pancit Palabok." It is a popular recipe known to Filipinos that is delicious and usually doesn't last long after it is cooked! It is made typically with rice sticks or egg noodles, garlic, onion, pork, shrimp, Tinapa (smoked fish) flakes or pork rinds, hard boiled eggs, lemon or calamansi (a citrus, orange-like fruit) and of course, the shrimp gravy broth to give it that "Palabok" flavor.
