Economical Fried Bee Hoon & Noodles

Economical Fried Noodles 1

This dish serves as a delightful breakfast for the locals here in Singapore. Food stalls selling it can be found everywhere in Singapore’s hawker centers and markets. Often, they offer 2 types of noodles to customers: fried bee hoon and fried Hokkien yellow noodles. Sides would range from luncheon meat, sunny-side-up, hot dog & fish cake, just to name a few.

A search online gave me a variety of how such stalls are named: ‘economical bee hoon’, ‘economic bee hoon’ and ‘economy bee hoon’. I’ve decided to stick to the first version, since it’s the only one that’s grammatically correct.
