Pancit Molo is a popular wonton dumpling soup that originated from Molo, Iloilo City.
The Pansit Molo soup is usually made with chicken broth and the dumplings are made with ground pork, chicken and shrimp.
The dumpling is considered the noodle here, or pancit, though, some people add Sotanghon noodles to make it a more hearty meal.
Wonton wrappers are readily available in Asian markets or you can make your dumpling wrapper from scratch, it is just like fresh pasta making.
Better yet, buy the ready to cook dumplings that come frozen in Asian markets.
