20 Jan Hokkien Mee
It’s a dish that has roots in China’s Fujian province, this dish has been adopted into Malaysia and Singapore when the Hokkien people migrated – Singaporean version of Hokkien mee was created after World War II by Chinese sailors from Fujian (Hokkien) province in southern China. After working in the factories, they would congregate along Rochor Road and fry excess noodles from the noodle factories over a charcoal stove.
Hokkien Mee includes a mixture of both yellow egg noodles and white rice noodles that are fried in a wok with egg, often pieces of seafood, usually squid and shrimp, and bean sprouts. This simple dish of stir-fried noodles boasts a rich prawn stock that keeps fans coming back for more.
