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.
