Bihon refers to a type of pancit (Chinese-influenced Filipino noodles). These are thin noodles made from rice flour. Bought dry, they look like very thin white sticks, so they are also known to English speakers as rice sticks.

In English, sago (pronounced “say-goh”) refers to a palm from which starch is extracted. In the Philippines, when you say sagó (“sah-go”) the first thing that springs to mind is something that looks like the tapioca pearls used in boba drinks in the United States.
