Kumusta kayo~ Magandang gabi guys~ (kumusta kayo is hello and magandang gabi is good evening. Both are Filipino/Tagalog language) XDD 

Wonder why I speak Tagalog? Its because, I wanna share with you Filipino recipe :D 

It just simple and easy to make.. I make it today for lunch, and surprisingly its so delicious.. bwahahaha (compliment myself) XDD 

(Picture not mine, I forgot to snap it...) 

Sir Ad Joven, I used your picture :) Hope you don't mind..

  • 200 gram sotanghon (In Malaysia, we called it suhun/suhoon. Some called it as tanghoon. It have the same features as bihun but its not. You can called it as cellophane noodle, bean thread noodle, bean thread, Chinese vermicelli, glass noodle or crystal noodle.
  • 1 cup/bowl/plate chopped or flaked cooked chicken meat (You can use leftover or not. Its depend on you)
  • 6-7 cups chicken stock (Since I doesn't have chicken stock in my wardrobe and I feel lazy to make it. So, I use 1/2 Knorr chicken cubes)
  • 1 mug of water.
  • 2 pieces tomatoes - slice (you can used 1 or 2 depend on the tomatoes size)
  • 2 tablespoon oil (I used 6 tablespoon)
  • 1/2 head of garlic - minced
  • 1/2 medium onion - slice (I used bawang besar but medium size)
  • 1 tablespoon patis (In Malaysia, patis is fish sauce) I have fish sauce in refrigerator, but its already expired??? What??? So I replaced it with Adabi oyster sauce.
  • 4 dried shiitake mushroom (optional) I didn't use since my mom didn't buy it.
  • A bit salt, Ajinomoto and black pepper.
  • Green onion - chopped (optional) Its only for decoration though~
  1. Heat oil in a pan. Sauted (fried) garlic, onion, tomatoes in low to medium heat. Make sure the garlic is not burned.
  2. Add chicken and oyster sauce. Cover and simmer it about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add a mug of water and chicken cubes. Just leave it like that until its boil.
  4. Add salt, ajinamoto, black pepper.
  5. At last, you can put suhun and wait for 3 minutes. Make sure suhun is tender and cooked.
  6. Put it in a bowl and serve it.
How was it? Was it delicious? :D If you wonder what the is the taste, TRY IT...
