I am not familiar with that style of pancit and I have never seen yellow pan fried noodles, and I was married to a Pinay. What is that particular pancit style called, and what type of noodle is it?

Growing up in Japan my favorite noodle dishes were and still are ramen and zaru soba. We're talking real ramen...:D

The package just says Pancit! I bought it fresh at my local asian market.
One of the ingredients is yellow dye though. It looks similar to a curly ramen.

Pad Thai and a noodle dish we get at a local Chinese place with loads of Asian greens in it, forgot what they call it. It's not on the menu, I just saw the owner eating some with her kids and asked if I could order some. It was fresh and light with a hint of chili and I think lime.

Could that possibly be pacit canton, which is similar to Chinese lo mein or chow mien?

Personally, I use the same recipe for pancit bihon and pancit canton, except for the noodles. Bihon has really thin rice noodles, while canton has thicker Chinese style wheat noodles. They both also include shredded cabbage, pork shoulder and chicken livers. But my favorite is still pancit palabok with shrimp sauce, shredded cabbage, shrimp, sliced egg, and dinipa (crushed pork rinds)

I've yet to meet an Asian noodle dish I didn't like except for bean threads, which I don't care for at all. So long as there's lots of "stuff" - veggies, etc. - involved, I'm a happy camper whether it's Lo Mein, Chow Fun, Singapore curry style, or ramen.

Bun. Mee Krob (which I can never get and don't like frying enough to try it at home). Singapore rice noodles. Almost any thin noodle dish (be it wheat, rice, or bean threads). For some reason I like my noodles thin.

I've never met an Asian noodle dish I didn't like. Lo mein, dun dun (or dan dan), pancit bihon, soba, pad thai, etc. When I really like them, I try to make them at home.

Most recently, we went to a city wide music festival in an adjacent community which features all kinds of ethnic food booths. The longest lines are always at the Filipino booth. They always feature a version of a pancit bihon with either lap chang, or chicken along with other foods. The pancit is always tasty.

They are more like the chow mein! All of your pancit dishes sound awesome!
