Ginisang Pansit Bihon with Upo
Ginisang Pansit Bihon with Upo. A lot of Pinoy including myself love to eat noodles with rice, pansit bihon and pansit canton in particular. When I was in high school I used to just bring rice for my baon, it was either there was no cooked ulam or there is nothing at all to cook but rice.

To make my meagre daily allowance last for the week I usually just buy the smallest serving of pansit bihon or pansit canton at a cheap food stall and that will then be my viand for my cold rice baon. That was probably the reason why I always wanted to eat noodles with rice.

Today I re-created one of my favorite pansit bihon ulam style, ginisang pansit bihon with upo as the vegetable ingredients instead the usual Baguio type vegetables which are more expensive. Of course on my version I used generous amount of pork and added some shrimps.

Here is the recipe of my all-time favorite Ginisang Pansit Bihon with Upo.
