Pancit Bihon Guisado is yet another Filipino native dish that you should try. It originated from the Chinese, but its flavor has been altered and tapered to the Filipino taste. Naturally Filipinos are fond of experimenting with their dishes, and this is very obvious when you see and taste the goodness of Pancit Guisado. This dish has been served at numerous birthday parties, christenings and even town fiestas. Pancit in birthdays symbolizes long life for the celebrant, and if you see Pancit served on a special occasion, it usually symbolizes festivities and enjoyment. Pancit is usually served with lumpiang shanghai, another Filipino dish that you should try. This Pancit Guisado is a complete dish that has carbs and vegetables that people need to fill up their bodies. You no longer need rice once you eat it, but if you want, you can also eat Pancit Guisado with rice and lumpiang shanghai. I do not want you to be left out when it comes to tasting this very savory dish. That is why I will be sharing how to prepare and cook it so that you can replicate it and enjoy, anywhere and anytime.
