XO White Bee Hoon Fish Soup

Seeing how there are always queues at Fish beehoon stalls. We definitely had to try cooking this dish!
We added a tablespoon of XO brandy in the fish seasoning (alcoholics rejoice!) for that unique fragrance. The battered fish slices are then fried to a crispy perfection. Our soup base is made from ikan bilis base and we finish it off with a good splash of evaporated milk for those who love your soup creamy!
