    I would love to make this dish. I don’t know what “tenga ng daga” is. Even akong Cebuana asawa doesn’t know. Can you tell me what it is? It looks and sounds very lami (masarap).

      tenga ng daga is a kind of mushroom called “cloud ear mushroom” very seldom this kind but you can use a “wood ear mushroom”. I live in England and found this at tesco’s, they are dried mushrooms and costly, soak them with water before use.

    I agree that it tastes better than the pansit guisado. The combination lends better texture. Do you know what tenga ng daga in english is? We grow them in our langka tree. 😀

    Tenga ng Daga (wood ear mushroom) is scientifically referred to as Auricularia auricula-judae (syn. Auricularia auricula, Hirneola auricula-judae). In Europe and America, it’s called the Judas Ear or Jew’s Ear (supposedly the remnants of Judas when he hanged himself–typically anti-Semitic blabber).

    It is used comprehensively in Asian cuisine. According to Wikipedia (and this is surprising to me that Wiki can be so informative),

    “In Chinese, it is called ?? (pinyin: mù ?r, lit. “wood ear” or “tree ear”) or ??? (pinyin: h?i mù ?r, lit. “black wood ear”), and in Japanese it is called kikurage (????, lit. “tree-jellyfish”), and in Vietnamese it is called n?m tai mèo (cat’s ear fungus). Auricularia polytricha (cloud ear fungus), a closely related species, is also used in Asian cooking.

    One recipe is to collect it while still soft, wash it thoroughly and cut it into thin slices. The prepared slices should be stewed in stock or milk for around three-quarters of an hour, and then served with plenty of pepper. The result is crispy and sultry like seaweed.”

    The original reference is Mabey, Richard (1984), Food for Free., Pub. Fontana / Collins. ISBN 0-00-633470-9. P. 54.

    My own memories of bam-i are more often of fiestas and grand birthday parties when I am in Cebu…It’s definitely better than any Luzon-based pansit concoction.

    Actually bam-i is available here in Manila… our office canteen serves it for merienda… or one can order it if one wants to treat officemates for merienda. I like it but I like guisadong bihon with lots of kinchay better…

    pancit bam-i is served here in metro manila. you can order this in single order, or in bilao as large order. and it is very good. btw, the restaurant that i am talking about that is serving a very good bam-i is Conti’s Restaurant and Pastries. their branches are scattered around the metro, specifically in makati-greenbelt3, greenhills, katipunan, serendra, bf paranaque, nuvali sta.rosa, trinoma..
