Pancit Bihon

Pretend I blogged a really cute story about how my husband/wife/kids/cousins/friends would never eat anything except this dish, then let us all move on to the “recipe”:


  • Bihon noodles
  • Cabbage, sliced
  • Carrots, sliced,
  • Green Beans, cut
  • Shrimp, tiny
  • Chicken, diced
  • Eggs, scrambled
  • Soy Sauce, drown in it
  • Oil, as needed
  • Calamansi or Lemon juice


Cook the chicken and shrimp and set aside. Soak the noodles in warm water until soft, then drain and set aside.

In a pan or pot of good size, heat up some oil (I went with Extra Virgin Olive Oil because it’s what I had, but I don’t think it matters). When heated, add the vegetables until cooked to your liking. Add soy sauce a little bit at a time — you don’t want to drown the vegetables like I did, but you should have enough that the noodles absorb it later. (I ended up scooping out soy sauce from the vegetables then adding it back with the noodles.)

If you have space for it, make room in the pan to scramble the eggs. If not, scramble them separately then add them.

Add the noodles, shrimp, and chicken. Mix and stir until cooked. Add soy sauce to your taste. I think I cooked it for about 15 minutes on medium heat. You do you as long as you’re stirring through out and tasting it.

I added calamansi juice to the whole dish because I didn’t want to bring the little packs with me, but typically I will add it to my individual bowl. So add calamansi (or lemon) juice as you like and enjoy!


No real story here. This is one of my favorite foods that my mom cooks, and I had a craving for it. I also decided to bring it to my next session of Dungeons & Dragons — all of our sessions are like potlucks, and I usually contribute the least. But this was really simple to make and eat!

I brought some leftovers to my mom — she approved!
