Actually don't know what to call this. I think if you live in Singapore long enough and grew up here, you will know what I mean. Its the early morning stall that is only open in the morning and closed by 11am. Sometimes you see them setting up stalls in coffee shops. Sells in a packet for only S$1.00 and they usually have all the side dishes like fried eggs, sausages, deep fried chicken wings, pan fried luncheon meat slices. yummy

Sometimes the simpliest of things makes a wholesome meal.

Here is the recipe I did for Cuisine Asia. Archived..and back to KC for keeps!

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 packet of beehoon

Seasoning A:
3 tbsp dark soya sauce
3 tbsp light soya sauce
3 tbsp sesame oil

Seasoning B:
3 tbsp Fish Sauce
2 tbsp Sweet Black sauce

400g bean sprouts
40ml cooking oil
1 tbsp chopped garlic

Method:
1. Use a large pot, add water and Seasoning A to mix.
2. Put whole pack of beehoon to soak for 1 hour till it

Hi Gina,
I seem to have a problem with the b-hoon sticking to the wok. What didn't I do right? I cook it in a carbon steel wok. Love this dish but my noodle break into pieces!

sorry for the late reply...

Heat the wok first.
then add oil.
make sure oil is heated before adding stuff in to cook.

This is how I would do it. island

Hi PWL

no idea about the packet..its the standard packing sold in all the supermarkets.

If you find it too bland..then add a bit more fish sauce the next time. Taste is subjective when it comes to saltiness..

Hi Gina

Thanks for your reply! Perhaps it's because I have halved the seasoning as I cooked 200g of bee hoon( the packet that I bought weighs 400g). Will adding fish sauce make the bee hoon more fishy smell? The minute I opened the fish sauce it had a very strong fishy smell. Pardon for asking this as this is the first time I'm using fish sauce :/

At the same time, the 200ml seasoning water refer to seasoning A plus 200ml plain water right?
