About Miswa Edit
Wikipedia Article About Miswa on Wikipedia
Miswa is a long, thin variety of Filipino egg wheat noodles which are very fine and delicate. They are slightly off-white in color.
It differs from Bihon and Sotanghon because the latter two are made from rice. Misua is cooked during important festivities, and is eaten among the Chinese community in China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, Brunei, Thailand, and the Philippines. It signifies long life in Chinese culture, and as such is a traditional birthday food. It is usually served topped with ingredients such as eggs, shiitake mushroom, beef, shallots or scallions, and roasted nuts.
