Earlier this month, I received a special bilao from Lucky Me!. Our helper thought that it's palabok, and she was actually right. What I got was a bilao of Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok which is one of the newest dry noodle products from Monde Nissin.
Since my sister and I are fans of both Lucky Me! and palabok, we didn't waste a second and went straight to the kitchen to cook a few packs of the Instant Pancit Palabok. Each packet has a block of dehydrated rice noodles, a sachet of palabok sauce, and a pack of dried toppings. Preparation is super easy too as you only need to follow a few steps.
Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok Cooking Instructions
- Add boiling water to the dehydrated noodles, and cover for 4 minutes.
- Carefully drain the water from the noodles.
- Mix the noodles with the palabok sauce, and add the toppings.
- You can also add optional ingredients like slices of boiled egg.
For about P12 to P14 a pack, Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok is actually quite good for a light afternoon snack. The sauce was quite savory and the toppings added saltiness and texture to the noodles. However, I think the palabok sauce included in a pack of the Instant Pancit Palabok is bitin. Sure, it can coat the rice noodles nicely, but it isn't as flavorful as I would've wanted. I actually ended up using 2 sachets of the palabok sauce to make my Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok tastier.
Have you tried the new Lucky Me! Special Instant Pancit Palabok already? As for me, I think I'll give the new Curly Spaghetti Korean Style Spicy BibimMyun a taste too!
