I am a Singaporean who is based in Shanghai. Your food blog has helped me conjure up a few Singaporean dishes which are dearly missed while being overseas. My cooking skills have improved greatly using your simple receipes with basic ingredients! Do keep adding on new recipes for sharing! Do you have a simple recipe for good old Shrimp paste chicken ala Singaporean style? Thanks!!
HI there! Just want to say a big THANK YOU for all the works you’ve done and your wonderful recipes that you share here. I’m in my 20s and just begun experimenting to cook. With your help, even though you might not have known, I managed to cook a Chinese meal for the first time ever. I appreciate all that you’re doing – once again, THANK YOU! Love.
Clear, simple instructions to follow, thanks so much for the detailed breakdown of steps!
Makes cooking so much easier for newbies like me!
Appreciate your recipes so much! :)
Wonderful website, Congratulations. I am looking for a Bee Hoon recipe. I lived right off of Orchard Rd. in Singapore in early1968 to late1969. As a child and loved everything about Singapore, the people the food and Chinese Opera. I especially liked noodle dishes from the stalls, and remember eating at the Paradise outdoor restaurant a lot . I am looking to recreate a favorite noodle dish for my daughter who is a chef . It is a bee hoon recipe though I do not exactly remember the name, I do remember the ingredients. it may have been a Chinese New Year party dish because it contained canned sliced abalone. Ingredients Bee Hoon noodles, oil, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, scallions, oyster sauce, a little baby bok choy leaves or ‘water spinach’ (not sure) thin sliced beef steak, sliced abalone and sliced chicken livers. I remember it as being the best stir fried noodle dish I had ever eaten and I don’t even like chicken livers. The noodles were soft and held the sauce not “quite fried” like Singapore noodles. Thanks for your help in advance. I have tried to make this myself from memory a couple of times but wasn’t quite right.
I have a simple fried bee hoon recipe at http://www.noobcook.com/fried-bee-hoon-rice-vermicelli-with-stewed-pork/, maybe you can adapt it from there.
Hi Samantha, that’s the sweetest thing I have ever heard, thank you!!
I’m really to happy to found NC! Almost everything’s in it! I love it!
One Word, Epic.
I am currently a student based in shanghai for my internship. And well, needless to say, this website saved my stomach. =D
I hope you are still reading this page…haha..
I was reading your “mee suah soup” recipe and was thinking if you know of a type of noodle call “豆签“ and how to cook. If you are not sure, maybe can help me ask your mum.
Hi jonie, is this something like Shanghai noodles? Can use to make zha jiang mian?
Thanks for your reply.
I don’t think is shanghai noodles…I only know when i was sick my mom used to cook this noodle soup for me. Will take a picture one of these days so that you have a better idea.
Hi jonie, does it look like this? http://my-travel-dream.blogspot.com/2011/07/blog-post_19.html look a bit like kway teow hor…. sorry I haven’t cooked this before so I’m not much help, but there are some recipes online. Cooking wise is something similar to cook ban mian? (soup broth, minced meat etc)? I will buy a packet to try if I see it in the stores, keke ….
yes…it is the package shown on the picture.
no hurry…whenever you have the chance to cook it, remember to post your recipe on your blog…
