During this season, and especially when classes/work are suspended due to a typhoon or flooding, people usually pass the time staying in bed and/or eating. For many, this is the perfect time for warm soups and the one of the all-time favorite is Sopas (Chicken Macaroni/Noodle Soup).

Hhhmmm…come to think of it, we, Filipinos, really like our soups. I only realize this now that I am living in Germany, where soup is not that commonly eaten except for the Goulash soup now and then, I haven’t seen so much soup around. In the Philippines, we have all kinds of soups: soup with meat or fish or shellfish and vegetables, sour soup, bitter soup, milk soup like this one and lots more.Try this delicious and hearty Sopas recipe (Filipino Chicken Noodle Soup) that will surely keep you warm and fit for the cold and rainy days! | www.foxyfolksy.com

  1. This recipe is always a hit specially on a rainy evening. My family loves this. It’s best with rice but some like it eaten with bread.


  2. OMG! They look so delicious I’m salivating! I am delighted I found your Filipino recipe, I’m printing my favs out and will definitely cook one of them tomorrow! Currently residing in sunny California and have friends in Germany and France. Thank you Bebs for all your effort in putting together recipes that I so missed!

    1. You’re so welcome, Ashley from sunny California, wish I could say the same about our weather, but it is so unpredictable here in Germany. I know how it is to crave for the food you’ve grown up with, that is actually how this blog started ????.
