Eonomical Fried Bee Hoon 经济米粉


I made the noodles version of this the other day and i was hooked! I couldn’t wait to try the rice vermicelli version as it is also one of my favourites! I used my trusted 新竹米粉 and it was superb! I can finally say that i have mastered the skill of frying beehoon! It sounds silly as this is a simple dish but it can be so hard to get it right. Following my success from the other day, i was more confident today. QQ, al dente with a great bite. I can have this for brekkie everyday! 🙂 You can pair this up with your favourite sides for breakfast, or you can serve it with curry. Curry and this type of fried bee hoon is a match made in heaven 🙂
