History and culture is embedded in the food that we make. From the choice of ingredients to the method of cooking, we are told stories of those that came before us. Interestingly enough, some dishes possess similar characteristics and even presentation across different countries. This implies either past relationships between countries, ancient trade routes or maybe just similar environmental conditions.
An example of this is Xing Zhou Mi Fen of Singapore and the Philippines’ very own, Pancit Bihon. With just some small nuances here and there, both cultures share the same love for these noodle dishes.
