    Use the calamansi flavored pancit canton. Mix the seasonings, add the following:

    - Cayenne pepper
    - Additional calamansi
    - additional spoonful of soy sauce
    (trust me the soy sauce inside each pack is never enough)

    - sesame oil
    - a teaspoon of oyster sauce
    (trust me again it'll give a significant umami taste)

    The canton should only be cooked under 3 minutes on a rapid boiling water. Make it al dente, you dont wanna have a sad soggy canton. Add egg, preferably soft boiled.
