How to Prepare Lucky Me! Pancit Canton—the Right Way

PRO TIP: Before you jazz up your Original Lucky Me! Pancit Canton, you need to know the best way to prepare it. Here’s how:

  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Not a simmer, a boil!
  2. Add noodles and boil for 3 minutes. Make sure every bit is submerged in the boiling water!
  3. While the noodles are boiling, prepare the sauce. Add seasoning powder, sauce, and oil into a mixing bowl. Stir together with a fork or spoon until a smooth, emulsified sauce is formed.
  4. Strain noodles and add straight into sauce. Toss until fully coated. Serve hot.

Now that you know how to cook the Original Lucky Me! Pancit Canton, here are three great ways to spice it up for the ultimate #Sarapiness.


Cheesy Korean Noodles

This recipe is for the cheese lovers! Inspired by cheesy Korean ramen, we’re going hard on the cheese. The Original Lucky Me! Pancit Canton’s savory flavor is perfect to pair with a creamy emulsified cheese sauce. An egg on top gives extra richness and a silky, velvety texture.

Togarashi (a Japanese spice blend) adds a mild kick of heat. If you can’t find togarashi, you can sub with a pinch of cayenne pepper or chili powder. A light drizzle of chili oil works, too!

Cheesy Korean Noodles

  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 pack Lucky Me! Original Pancit Canton
  • ¼ cup cheese spread
  • ¼ tsp togarashi or cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup grated cheddar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup grated mozzarella

Make cheesy noodles: Pour 1 cup water and milk in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Cook noodles for 2 minutes. Once noodles are slightly tender but not fully cooked, add Lucky Me! Pancit Canton seasoning packet, cheese spread, togarashi or cayenne, and grated cheddar. Mix to combine. Allow to simmer for 2 minutes, or until half the liquid has reduced.


Finish and serve: Crack egg into noodles and sprinkle mozzarella on top. Cover with lid. Turn off the heat, and allow to steam for 1 minute. Remove lid and mix thoroughly with a fork or chopsticks. Serve hot.


Pancit Canton Okonomiyaki

Turn your Original Lucky Me! Pancit Canton into okonomiyaki, a Japanese savory pancake! Mix it with a simple batter and crisp it up on a pan. Shredded cabbage adds extra crunch, while pickled ginger (optional but highly recommended!) adds a tangy freshness. Finish with a zigzag of tonkatsu sauce and Kewpie mayo on top of the light, crispy pancake.
