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!!

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.

Thanks for your reply.

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 ….

Any idea if able to cook together a mixture of white and brown rice in a rice cooker?
And what setting should I choose when cooking it?

Great website and i tried your roast pork recipe during CNY and everyone was raving about it. Just that my skin wasnt nicely done but the meat was really flavorful and tender. How did you manage to make the skin so crispy and glistening? so nice.
Lily, i cooked white and brown rice all the time. i am using the zoojirushi brand rice cooker and just select the cook rice mode. if you are using origins brown rice (or any harder ones), you may want to add slightly more water than the indicator.

Hi Rachel, for crisp skin, make sure the skin is as dry as can be. Poking surface holes will help the skin to crackle. Depending on the oven you use, you can up the heat or place it on a rack nearer the top heat coils. Even if the skin is slightly charred, you can scrap the charred bits off with a knife. Hope this helps.
