I see palabok as a dish that needs to be prepared for a long amount of time. It’s a delightful dish that people usually serve at parties. I tend to get a dose of palabok during office celebrations or birthday parties. But that’s about it for me.
Who would have thought that Pancit Palabok can be prepared in less than 5 minutes? I mean, is that even possible?
Apparently, Lucky Me! Special, a company known to have perfected instant noodles have a product named Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok!
This week, I was in for a big surprise as Lucky Me! Special sent me a couple of Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok for review. Wow! They didn’t just send it as it is but Lucky Me! Special delivered it in true palabok style. The products were placed in a traditional bilao!
With that kind of product presentation, who wouldn’t be excited? I was totally psyched to try it out!
A colleague told me that Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok launched a long time ago (last November 2011). I guess I was too concentrated on their pancit canton product that I missed Lucky Me’s display of Pancit Palabok Instant Noodle Packs.
Today, I had it for lunch. I woke up so late already that I didn’t have time to prepare any dish so I went to get a pack of Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok.
Cooking Lucky Me! Special Pancit Palabok is surprisingly easy! I can describe the preparation in three simple steps. In just 5 minutes, I was already enjoying the wonderful taste of Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok!
- Place noodles in a bowl. Add boiling water and cover for 4 minutes.
- Carefully drain water.
- Mix noodles with sauce. Add garnish and mix well.
Pancit Palabok is usually served unmixed. Look at Lucky Me! Special’s version below:
It looked like the real thing! I loved it!! I have this crazy idea of just serving Lucky Me! Special Pancit Palabok and people might mistake it as the authentic one: Rice noodles with thick golden shrimp sauce topped with chives and real chicharon 🙂
In true palabok style, I mixed the ingredients with the noodles. When I tried it out, I was pleasantly surprised! The instant pancit palabok by Lucky Me! Special actually tasted unexpectedly good!
Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok has a similar aroma and taste of the authentic palabok dish. I’m quite satisfied with the product.
How about you? Have you tried it?
