The classic satay bee hoon may not rank as high as dishes such as laksa or chilli crab, but for those unaware, it’s still a true-blue Singaporean creation that deserves a try anyway. Essentially, it comprises rice vermicelli and ingredients such as cuttlefish, sliced pork, kang kong, bean sprouts and cockles that are covered—and we mean totally covered—in a thick and flavourful satay gravy.
An iconic supper spot, Bedok 85 Food Centre is a well-known food heaven and fortunately, nestled within the hawker centre is a stall that sells a pretty damn good plate of satay bee hoon—Shi Wei Da Fengshan Satay Bee Hoon.
A sizable plate of Satay Bee Hoon (S$3) comes with a generous amount of bee hoon and ingredients that is, upon serving, is topped with a copious amount of luscious satay gravy. The result is a sweet and savoury marriage of flavours along with a refreshing crunch from the vegetables and let’s not forget the subtly briny note from the cockles that does well to provide a heightened depth of flavour.
It probably would not come as a surprise that we managed to polish the plate within minutes. No kidding, this joint serves up some seriously good satay bee hoon. Take our advice and go early as queues do start to form as early as 5pm.
