Economic fried bee hoon is one of the most common traditional local breakfasts, and Singaporeans love it for its generous portions and affordability. It usually includes a variety of side dishes which you can choose from to add to your meal, such as fried egg, luncheon meat, veggies and many more. The meal is usually completed with a dollop of spicy chilli paste to tie the whole dish together! Without further ado, here are five economic bee hoon in Singapore worth getting out of bed for.
1. Bai Li Xiang Economic Bee Hoon
Situated in the West near Pioneer MRT, Bai Li Xiang is a popular choice for the NTU students in the vicinity to satisfy their supper cravings or breakfast after pulling an all-nighter. Food is always served piping hot as new batches are constantly being prepared, and you’ll be spoilt for choice by the number of side dishes they have. The bee hoon here is also not too oily, making it the perfect meal to wolf down in a jiffy.
2. Holland Village Fried Bee Hoon
Holland Village is a popular destination for locals and foreigners thanks to its many cafes and food offerings. One of the most affordable dining spots here is Holland Village Fried Bee Hoon. What’s different about their fried bee hoon is that they use a special self-made lard, which imparts a fragrant savouriness to the dish. Side dishes include fried eggs, luncheon meat, stir fried cabbage, deep fried meat roll and fried chicken cutlets.
3. Yon Yan Fried Chicken Wings
Yon Yan Fried Chicken Wings shot to fame a few years ago when Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong was spotted queuing up for their chicken wings! Come prepared to wait for up to half an hour, that’s how popular their chicken wings are. Pair it with some bee hoon and four other side dishes: ngor hiang, fish cake, sausage and luncheon meat.
4. Hup Lee Fried Bee Hoon
The best thing about Hup Lee is not only that they have several outlets across Singapore, but their overall consistency in quality! You can’t go wrong with either kway teow, fried noodles or fried bee hoon. Pair it with sides such as stir fried cabbage, spring rolls, fish cake, fish fillet, fried tofu, luncheon meat, sausages and chicken wings. Their bee hoon is on the oilier side, but other than that there’s nothing not to love.
5. 327 Fried Bee Hoon
Nestled within Hougang, 327 Fried Bee Hoon is a Michelin-listed stall that’s known for their bee hoon and fried chicken thighs, instead of the usual chicken wings. They start serving as early as 5am, so you may need to crawl out of bed early for this! Apart from their fried bee hoon that’s cooked to springy perfection, the stall also serves a smooth and aromatic coconut rice.
