Fried Bee Hoon
I love plain fried rice vermicelli (炒米粉). More commonly known as “bee hoon” or “bihun” (米粉) by the locals, these thin noodles are made from rice. Plain fried bee hoon is one of the staples (along with rice and other fried noodles) that you can choose from when you order food at “economical bee hoon” or vegetarian food stalls in Singapore.

Even though the bee hoon is so-called plain, they taste nice on its own due to the soy seasonings. Growing up, I love to eat plain bee hoon with just Sinsin garlic chilli sauce. That being said, they are usually complemented with homely dishes such as curry vegetables, sambal long beans and simple stir-fried cabbage. It is also popular party food as it go well with almost every finger food like fried chicken, plus the noodles can be left be left on the table for a few hours without becoming soggy.
