Crab bee hoon is usually either wok-fried, “dry” or served up in a light milky soup. The dry crab bee hoon has been given the thumbs up by Anthony Bourdain on one of his trips to Singapore, but it is a pity that he missed out on its soup counterpart! Sweet succulent chunks of mud crab simmered in a silky broth with bee hoon noodles, what’s not to love?
Seeing how there are always queues at Fish beehoon stalls. We definitely had to try cooking this dish!
Satay Bee Hoon (沙嗲米粉) is a fusion of different cultures, mainly between the Malay and Chinese, as you can guess from the name the reason why its call Satay Bee Hoon is because of the peanut gravy which is similar to satay dipping sauce.
Hokkien Prawn Mee, also affectionately known as 福建蝦麵, is another favourite of every local in Singapore. In our recipe, we have used both thick and thin bee hoon (rice vermicelli) for a varied slurpyness to the noodly goodness of the noodles.
