Pancit Sotanghon Guisado

Pancit Sotanghon Guisado
What is Pancit Sotanghon Guisado? Pancit Sotanghon is just like Pancit Bihon, but using Sotanghon noodles (Glass Noodles or Cellophane Noodles). Sotanghon is a glass like noodles used in the Famous Chicken Sotanghon Soup. Personally, I think mas madulas ang pancit na ito at my konting kunat.
Be sure to use the best brand of Sotanghon in the Philippines, because some brand says it’s Sotanghon, but the quality is just like a regular bihon noodles when cooked and not glassy. I suggest Sopporo or Good Life Vermicelli for Sotanghon brands.
