Buko Laddit

Sanchez Mira
The ubiquitous pancit (noodles) that we always crave as a staple snack, a side meal, or an entree for lunch or dinner takes a unique version in the form of Buko Laddit.
The traditional pancit uses flour-based noodles as the base ingredient, but buko laddit replaces the noodles with stripped young coconut meat, with the usual veggies and seasonings it gives an inviting creamy taste oozing from the strips of fresh young coconut. The dish becomes more special with toppings like mussels, pork or chicken.
