In the olden days, this kind of pansit was sold to hungry customers and was placed in a handkerchief-sized banana leaf. Fast-forward to the age of plastics and the use of banana leaf is just a pigment of our imagination.
A pansit hab-hab meal costs about P8 if my memory serves me right. This was bought at a seaside canteen in Mauban, Quezon.
The art of eating this pansit is to make sure that the hand holding the pansit moves it towards your mouth and then you start eating from there. No fork please!!!
