What is the difference between palabok and luglog?

Is there really a difference between pansit palabok and pansit luglog, aside from the names?

Both are usually made of bihon. Both use atsuete-colored "caldo" (shrimp gravy w/ or w/o egg). Both have, shrimp, flaked tinapa and ground chicharon as toppings. They say palabok was named so because of the many toppings. While luglog was named after the sound the sauce makes as it boils. May pagkakaiba ba talaga, or kanya-kanyang name lang for the same dish?

Would I be correct in saying pansit Malabon is a distant "relative"? Kasi di ba caldo rin ang sauce niya, pero mas konti lang ang hinalo na yung chicharon (no tinapa) para kumapit sa fat noodles.

    mas konti or wala at sahog ang luglug, dati sa UST yung luglug nila sauce lang pero malasa naman at 12 petot lang isang order.

    so far the best palabok i've tasted is the one sold sa canteen ng Lourdes Hospital... yup lourdes hospital canteen. at 40 pesos mas madami pa sa palabok ng jollibee or razon's, malasa at maraming sahog.

    Kaibahan ang luglog may miki (yellow noodle) aside sa white noodle ang palabok wala. Ang pancit malabon naman mas matataba ang noodle. Lahat itong tatlo pare-pareho ang sauce although minsan may pancit malabon na tuyot ang pagkakagawa at di ma-sauce.
