For what I know, the filipino term "Pancit"  is simply called noodles. I think it's the top most pinoy's food of choice for rice substitute. I would say, it's a part of our daily lives. If you are a  tourist, you don't need to worry if you feel starve because it's locally available. It's really a budget money saver. Besides being very affordable, you'll get instantly busog (satiated). It has many variants to choose from. One type of pancit is the one that I had  learned from my mother in my younger days.... "Canton ala Mama Loves".
