Sopas Misua is a dish prepared by combining two Filipino dishes, the Sopas and Misua. It’s made with misua ingredients like flour vermicelli and vegetables, but the broth is made like a sopas.
- 60 g misua/flour vermicelli (that’s around 3 bunches)
- 1/2 cup pork belly, cubed
- 1 cup cabbage, chopped
- 100 g sugar snap peas, trimmed
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 large red onion, minced
- 6 cups chicken broth
- 200 ml evaporated milk
- freshly ground black pepper
- fish sauce
- cooking oil
- In a pot sauté garlic and onion in oil.
- Fry pork belly and fry until brown and crispy
- Add chicken broth then bring it to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes
- Add misua, cabbage, sugar snap peas and evaporated milk then simmer in low heat for 3 minutes
- Season with fish sauce and freshly ground black pepper then serve.
misua sounds like Hokkien..Interesting that you have used evaporated milk in soup. The colour and consistency remind me of a good homemade fish stock, which I love dearly.
Misua is our Foochow longevity noodles, literally translated as thread or string noodles. Usually served here with traditional Foochow red wine chicken soup with lots of ginger.
Never seen it with evaporated milk.
Oh yeah it happens quite often when I cannot decide between two (or more!) things. And I often end up making two recipes (For instance, one for lunch, one for dinner.) Occasionally it leads to mash-ups, too! I am familiar with neither Sopas nor Misua, but the combination of both these recipes sounds and looks great!

Such a comforting dinnermeal!
You can never go wrong with noodles, as far as I’m concerned. Great way to get everything you want in one bowl!
You were so wise to make the combination – sound fantastic. I have everything except the cabbage and I will get one at the market today,
