You Huak Sembawang for White Bee Hoon

White beehoon is a simple dish...made with boiled beehoon, a thick, rich sauce poured over it...and that's it...of course, fresh ingredients like prawns, pork, vegetables and an egg.

Deceptively simple, but yet getting simple dishes to taste good is not easy. Nothing to hide the chef's capability to bring all the ingredients into one coherent, delicious whole. For me, this is perhaps the one or two which make the cut.

The wok hei is there, but not in the usual place one would look for it...nay, it is not in the noodles, but in the sauce. Curious how sauce can wok hei...I don't know how to explain, but it does. The ingredients are nice and fresh. The beehoon, supple, compliant, with a bit of springy bite. Very nice.

I think, worth a trip to Sembawang just to sample. They have some cze char as well, but as I had cycled there alone, I did not sample the other dishes. An opportunity for another visit.
