白, Sembawang White Bee Hoon

The Original White Bee Hoon (L, $15++)

You have to agree, that not having the original white bee hoon - from the kitchen that makes this dish famous - meant you have yet the real thing. The little cze char kitchen has grown itself to be the White Restaurant.

Eggy, milky and syrupy. I never expect the taste of it to be this direct, yet flavorsome. Many emulators of the 'white bee hoon' bombarded their recipe with much seafresh-ness to give you the oomphs; forgetting that homely taste if well managed, can be all the more impressive. This original 'white bee hoon' retains its unique character, and refuses to be a seafood soup bee hoon.

No 'wok hei' to the vermicelli which was simply simmered in the tasty broth. Yet, the dish scores high on our chart. Add that squeeze of lime and sambal chili for more surprises. We like this white bee hoon.
