Last Friday night, my officemates and I went to Binondo to satisfy our Chinese food craving.  Our usual spot, Wai Ying at Buenavidez Street.  The place is a hole-in-the-wall but do not be deceive by ambiance beacause the food is really good and affordable.  As usual, I got a bowl of Beef Wanton Noodles and a serving of their soft and flavorful Chicken Feet.  I want to try something new and the Seafoods Sotanghon Roll got my attention.

Their Seasfoods Sotanghon Roll is really tasty and comes in two pieces of seasfoods roll for a price of Php90.00.  The dish is made of fish fillet, crabstick and shrimp wrapped around are strings of sotanghon or vermicelli rice noodles and a sauce or soup which I think is a simple egg drop soup.

When I came home, I quickly searched for a recipe of Seafoods Sotanhon Roll but to there was none.  All I could find are pictures from Chinese restaurants in the Philippines.  I really loved it, so I just dissect the Wai Ying's Seafoods Sotanghon Roll and came up with my own recipe.  I added a bokchoy or pechay in my version as a saw a version with bokchoy in it.
