Pancit is the name for Chinese noodles that long ago were assimilated into Filipino culture. Many varieties, such as pancit palabok, rely heavily on the flavors of the Philippines. Pancit Canton ($6.95), by contrast, still evokes its namesake. Essentially this is a pork lo mein with cabbage, carrots, and mushrooms, although the noodles are chopped into short segments and lemon wedges are provided on the side. The dish as a whole also carries a gentle undercurrent, via the Manila-raised chef, of Datu Puti soy sauce.
Also shown, from a previous visit: a jackfruit turron (on the house).
