A Filipino style noodle soup that typically serve with shredded chicken meat or chicken wings sauteed with onions, garlic, kinchay, crisp vegetables and added with egg as delectable toppings ---so hearty and delicious indeed!

We always have a sotanghon noodles in our kitchen cabinet, that is why when I saw an article from Yummy Magazine, though it's about sotanghon recipe, but different style in presenting.
