WATCH: This Jollibee-Style Pancit Palabok Will Be Your Favorite Noodle Dish

It's delicious enough to share.

We bet the pancit palabok is one of your favorite orders at the popular fastfood chain. Guess what? We found that it’s easy enough to hack at home, as long as you have the ingredients. It’s a simple recipe but the combination of flavors is what makes it delicious and appetizing. Topped with crushed chicharon, slices of egg, and all the ingredients that made the sauce, this is one recipe you will want to keep handy for those times when the craving hits and there’s no delivery fast enough to satisfy it.  

We think this is a pretty close version to Jollibee’s pancit palabok dish.
