Char Bee Hoon - Fried Rice Noodle aka Economical Rice Noodle

Char Bee Hoon always my favourite! Why is it call Economical Rice Noodle? This is because normally they sell it about 80 cents to $ 1.50 per pack. I am not sure about the price right now since but this dish definitely cheap and at the same time very delicious and satisfying. Here is the recipe. Enjoy

About 200 gram rice noodle (soaked)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
16 Medium shrimps (peeled and deveined)
some other seafood of your choice (optional)
2 -3 leafs Napa Cabbage (shredded) / bean sprouts
6 Shitake (soaked and sliced)
4 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp sweet soy sauce / dark soy sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
Dash of white pepper for taste
Pinch of salt for taste
2 eggs (beaten)
2 tbsp oil for eggs
2 tbsp oil stir fry the rest of the ingredients

  1. Heat up oil in pan. Pour beaten eggs into the pan on medium heat to make a thin layer of omelette. Flip over to the other side after 2 to 3 minutes so that both side can cook evenly.
  2. Remove from the pan and let it cool down. Once the omelette is cool down, cut into strips and set aside.
  3. On the same pan, heat up the rest of the oil. Stir fry the garlic for about a minute or two or until its fragrant. Add in the shitake mushrooms, shrimps and your choice of seafood and continue to stir fry until the ingredients is about 80% cooked.
  4. Add in shredded napa cabbage and continue to stir fry for another minute.
  5. Add in the rice noodle and continue to stir for about 2 minutes. Add the oyster sauce, sweet soy sauce, soy sauce and continue to stir until all the rice noodle is evenly coated. If it is too, dry add about 2 to 4 tbsp of water. 
  6. Add salt and dash of pepper for taste.
  7. Serve it in a plate or bowl. Garnish with strips of eggs.
