Fried Bee Hoon

Fried Bee Hoon (Fried Rice Vermicelli)

It’s down memory lane today.  I still recall the old lady coming around with a big pot of vegetarian fried bee hoon and a metal can containing that wonderful fried sweet dried bean curd strips. She ladled a whole heap of bee hoon onto a plate and threw just a few fried sweet dried bean curd strips on top. I loved that fried sweet dried bean curd strips and always had to ask for an extra portion – it was never enough.

To add a little “luxury” to the vegetarian fried bee hoon recipe, I added fried SPAM (luncheon meat) and fried omelette pieces.  I can now have as many fried sweet dried bean curd strips as I want – yay!
