I love plain fried rice vermicelli (炒米粉). More commonly known as “bee hoon” or “bihun” (米粉) by the locals, these thin noodles are made from rice. Plain fried bee hoon is one of the staples (along with rice and other fried noodles) that you can choose from when you order food at “economical bee hoon” or vegetarian food stalls in Singapore.

 See Also:

Even though the bee hoon is so-called plain, they taste nice on its own due to the soy seasonings. Growing up, I love to eat plain bee hoon with just Sinsin garlic chilli sauce. That being said, they are usually complemented with homely dishes such as curry vegetables, sambal long beans and simple stir-fried cabbage. It is also popular party food as it go well with almost every finger food like fried chicken, plus the noodles can be left be left on the table for a few hours without becoming soggy.

    Does yr bee hoon stick to the wok like mine? Do u fry the bee hoon in the wok first before adding the soy mixture? I always end up with a bee hoon crust in my wok….


    • wiffy replied: — June 15th, 2010 @ 3:18 pm

      hmm a little hard for me to describe hehe … if the bee hoon stick to the wok like dried crust, for me it means fry too long (and the bee hoon usually become broken and not long strand). I don’t fry the bee hoon before adding soy mixture. What I do is, put bee hoon in wok, immediately add soy mixture, make sure the bee hoon is entirely soaked in the water mixture (so you need to keep turning the noodles either with a spatula or tongs – hand aching!) and by the time the liquid is soaked up, just fry it a bit but not until stick to wok, and my bee hoon is almost done. U using non stick wok?

        No. Using iron wok to fry bee hoon in oil first before adding the liquid. Will try yr method. Thanks.

    Do you know how many packets of been hoon require for abt 18-20ppl? I’m frying bee hoon for my church friend…


    • wiffy replied: — August 10th, 2010 @ 12:21 pm

      hi, I suppose there will be other dishes and the bee hoon is just a side? If so, I suppose 1-2 packets may do the trick. based on my recipe, 200g bee hoon is actually half a packet.
