Sopas Misua

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.


In cooking have to been into a situation when you can’t decide what to cook from two choices and you need to cook only one? If yes, what did you do? Did you choose one over the other, dropped it all together and made a totally different dish or are you like me who sometimes decides to merge the two together to get the best of both worlds? This is what happened to our recipe today, it was born because I can’t decide whether to have sopas or misua the creamy taste of sopas and the delicate flour vermicelli noodles of misua joined into one dish, the Sopas Misua.

  1. 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.

  3. 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!

    You can never go wrong with noodles, as far as I’m concerned. Great way to get everything you want in one bowl!

  6. 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,
