PVC vs FMC vs AC vs ENT for cabinet under kitchen sink?

I'm doing some repairs to my sink cabinet in the kitchen to fix damage from a leaky pipe.

While I'm in there and got it torn up, I want to pull new lines and install a new split receptacle for the DW and Disposer on a 12/3 MWBC. The new circuits will come in through the basement, under the cabinets and up into the sink cabinet.

Just wondering what I should run in the exposed part of the run under the sink and/or under the cabinets. I was thinking THHN in ENT, but wasn't sure if I needed extra damage protection or anything special for this location.

I sleeve my wires in plastic or metal flex, whatever I have on the truck at the time.
That is if you can use romex.
