White Bee Hoon

White beehoon is a classic dish served everywhere from restaurants to zichar stalls. What makes it special is our homemade stock; made with chicken carcasses, chicken feet, soya beans, prawn heads and shells. We must say it’s definitely worth spending some time doing this, as it gives your beehoon a kickass flavour.
Having the Bee Hoon simmer in the stock along with egg and more seafood (clams, squid and prawns), just lets it soak up the wonderful flavours.
Making your own stock takes more time but it’s definitely worth the effort.
