      pancit molo is our favorite being from iloilo. i learned that it originated from the town of molo which is populated by a large chinese community during that time. (the binondo of panay island). also it is a rich enclave and the moors or muslim love to go and repeat the summer rounds of robbing and pillaging their towns. so the spaniards erecetd watch towers to scan the horizon for approaching muslims. then the sound the bell and the residents ran around like chickens creaming “molo! molo!” for moro.
      it is a delighftful meal by itself during the long winter months. You can make the soup and refrigerate the “molo” and just drop them to cook the next time when you heat the soup so they do not get soggy.
