Foodie Goodie | Lucky Me! Special Pancit Palabok.

On days when I don't feel like cooking (i.e. during weekends when the little man is at my in-laws and I'm basically home alone) or during instances when I crave for palabok but don't want to go through the hassle of prepping and cooking, I go to this big winnowing basket and reach for a pack (or two) of these.
Lucky Me! :)
Oh yes, instant palabok from Lucky Me! More specifically, they're Special Pancit Palabok made by the popular food company, Monde Nissin.

This big basket actually came last month - delivered right at my doorstep by representatives from Lucky Me. One of them came garbed in a chef's uniform, much to my surprise! Too bad I wasn't able to take a photo. Hee!
Packed the way real palabok should be.
Yep, that's me! :)
For my non-Filipino friends and followers, palabok is a traditional Filipino food. It's a dish made with rice noodles, smothered with shrimp sauce, and topped with chives, meat, pork cracklings, and egg.

With Lucky Me's instant version, you get pretty much the same thing. The best part? It only takes four minutes to cook!

Place noodles in a bowl, then add boiling water.
Cover, and let it stand for four minutes.

Carefully drain the water.
Add the sauce and mix well. Top with garnish.

Voila! A hearty meal ready for your enjoyment!

Many thanks to Lucky Me! and Monde Nissin for sending The Rebel Sweetheart packs and packs of this authentic tasting, fuss-free, instant dish! :)

I buy Lucky Me noodles but I have not tried this Palabok yet, only the instant Lomi, which is quite good!

Our helper put the bilao in the ref. She didn't open it, she thought it was actual palabok and it might spoil, lol!

Oh you lucky girl! I love Palabok but it's not easy to prepare and I often find that a single serving in Jollibee just isn't enough. I've been eying Lucky Me's palabok at the grocery store but wasn't sure if it's any good. Looking at your photos, I might just try it today. :D

I love Lucky Me Pancit canton and I eat at times as filling to bread. It's really easy to prepare.

I love making a quick and easy meal when I don't feel like cooking a large meal when I am alone either. I tend to pick up a frozen meal. My kids love eating ramen, I don't like them to eat it all the time due to the high salt content.
