Poor man style soup, that’s what the name Sopas ala Pobre means, why? Because in Philippines all of the ingredients of this dish are either free or very cheap. Beef leg bones is one of the cheapest beef cuts, as well as the misua noodles where it can be bought “tingi” style in Sari Sari stores and is also very cheap, then malunggay which you can pick on your backyard or your neighbours. But don’t let the affordability fool you, this thing is as tasty as bulalo, if not better. In fact it is nearly a close cousin to the bulalo, basically a cross between that dish and misua.
