Perolina's Original Shing-a-Ling

Shing-a-ling is often mistaken for deep-fried chicken intestines!


This crunchy Filipino snack reportedly originated from the area of Calamba, Laguna. The name of the Perolina family has long been attached to it, and they are likely the “inventors” of this snack.

To make your own shingaling, dry out pancit miki noodles overnight, then deep-fry in oil.

One variation involves using green malunggay leaves as an ingredient.
