Bihon for Long Life
We served the Bihon during New Year's eve. Bihon is a Filipino dish that is made of rice noodles , beef, pork, chicken or shrimp and vegetables. The vegetables are usually carrots, string beans, chayote and sometimes others add cabbage and/or bell peppers. The protein is stir fried with the vegetables then the noodles are added.
It is served on birthdays too. It is supposed to mean long life so on New Year we served it for long life. Others serve spaghetti or sotonghon or pancit. As long as it is noodles that are long. Bihon can be eaten alone, with rice or with sliced bread.
This is one tradition I stuck with for the New Year. Anyway we serve food for the media noche so bihon is one.

I like this noodle very much. I can cook it though it is not as delicious as the one that is served on restaurants.

I love this noodle. One of the best noodles available here in the Philippines is this one.

Hi, I haven't heard of Bihon, but your photo certainly looks very nice as does your description. Have a great day.

There were lots of Bihon in parties last December that we didn't bother to have some at home.
