It's New Year's Eve. Say goodbye to 2009 and say hello to 2010. In many places right now it's already the Jan 1st. Everyone please stay safe tonight.

Another famous Filipino dish. Pronounced like pansit. Most people who've tasted Philippine cuisine would be very familiar with this as well as the lumpia. This is a rice noodle dish with some celery, carrots, cabbage, chicken and Chinese sausage. You'd also find this in many gatherings and parties. It's almost like a must have as part of the menu.

One of the neat things I like to do is to stuff this into a pan de sal or dinner roll and eat it like a sandwich. It may sound weird to some, but totally fun to eat. 


2 garlic cloves
8 oz rice noodles
1 c cooked chicken - shredded
1 small head of cabbage - chopped
1/2 large carrot - julienned
1 celery stick chopped
1 1/2 to 2 c water or stock
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt

Wash the rice noodles briefly in cold water and drain. Set aside.

In a large pan on medium to high heat, saute the garlic in the oil, The saute the onions and add chicken season with a little pepper. Add the soy sauce. Then the carrots and saute until slightly tender. Season with salt. Add the cabbage and broth. and mix together. Cover the pan and bring the light boil to cook the cabbage. When the broth is boiling, lower the heat and add the rice noodles. Mix thorughly until the noodles ave absorbed the broth and are darker in color.

Note: Do not cover completely after cooking or it will spoil.

This is one of my favourite dishes ever!! My family makes it slightly different, for example replacing the sausage with prawns and the celery with lettuce, but it is still very yummy!
