Mr. Nicholas, with his post "Quinoa Tabouli", on his site: Intelliblog

I bought a pack of red quinoa a couple of weeks back, but had no idea what to do with it! This recipe looks like something that I'd love to try! Click on the shot to check it out!

My post for this week: Pancit Bihon

I know, I didn't cook it. Our neighbor have nothing but praises for this eatery/restaurant, so we decided to buy one small bilao (originally a winnowing basket for removing rice chaff {source}) of pancit bihon earlier today. Their smallest bilao was actually good for 8-11 persons.

There was a line when we arrived, and we had to wait again after ordering (they cook your order only after payment). Waiting wasn't really that long (we waited for more or less around 10-15mins, depends largely on the number of people ahead of you), and their waiting area was air-conditioned and separate from the dining area.

I liked their pancit, even though I must admit it tasted a bit bland. I would love to add cilantro, or maybe some more veggies into the noodles; my youngest loved it (he ate more than a plateful, and he kept asking for more!).

Would we buy from them again? Oh yes. Definitely. :)

Please don't forget to add a link back to this site (you can get the buttons here; deciding to use text instead of buttons is fine also) to be able to add your posts below. Many thanks and hope everyone is going to have a great time this weekend!

"Pakibalot" ahh.. how charming! I fancied bihon a few days back. Now the fancy is getting serious :) I'll probably get some this weekend. Their smallest bilao is good for that many huh... well, at least to me. I'm used to having a few people around. I would probably add more greens and meat in there if it were up to me. Glad to know you would buy from them again. That means the experience was okay? Have a great weekend Maiylah.
