Pancit Guisado (canton-bihon)

There are many kinds of pancit in our country philippines, to name some, we have pancit sotanghon, canton, bihon, lomi, mami, pancit malabon, luglog and many more.It is very similar to chinese noodles cooking style. as we know this dish was inspired by the chinese. I cook this as guisado or pancit malabon combining two types of noodles – Bihon and pancit malunggay(canton).. . Did you know that rice noodles are best alternative to rice and pasta because they provide the carbohydrates we need for our body… Rice noodles also make a good base for a low-calorie meal because they are relatively low in calories and fat. ..
