Fried Bee Hoon (经济米粉/Economic Bee Hoon stall bee hoon)

I have not seen one of this stalls in ages, not since we had to move overseas. Did a search online, ingredients seemed easy enough to find, especially since we are living overseas, so yay to comfort food / food that reminds you of home!

Here we go!

Recipe adapted from coasterkitchen.


200g rice vermicelli/ bee hoon
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp oil
100g beansprouts
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
Dash of pepper


1. Soak the bee hoon in hot water briefly, until it has soften and white. Drain and set aside.

2. Mix light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, pepper, sesame oil and water in a bowl until well incorporated.

3. Add the mixed seasonings into the soften bee hoon. Mix until all the bee hoon is coated with the seasoning.

4. Heat up about 1 tbsp of cooking oil, and stir fry the garlic until fragrant and golden.

5. Add the bean sprouts and toss it until almost cooked.

6. Add the seasoned beehoon into the wok and stir fry till cooked. If it is a little dry, you may add about 1/2 cup water.

7. Work the beansprouts into the beehoon carefully, if not they may seem like two separate dishes on the same plate..

Enjoy your fried beehoon!

You can pair it with any dish, just like at the economic bee hoon stall where you get to choose from a large array of dishes. Best with fried cabbage, fried luncheon meat and a fried egg. Sedappp.
