Pancit Molo[1] or Filipino pork dumpling soup is a type of soup using wonton wrappers which originated from Molo district in Iloilo City.[2] It consists of a mixture of ground pork wrapped in molo or wonton wrapper, shredded chicken meat, and also shrimps. The piping-hot soup is often ladled into serving bowls, and garnished with green onions and fried garlic bits for another layer of flavor. It is called pancit (noodle dish) because wonton wrappers are added to the soup to serve as its "noodles". This dish resembles the Chinese wonton soup but the wide variety of ingredients and flavor makes this dish distinct.
