Singapore Hawker Food : Lala Prawns White Bee Hoon

Are U Hungry ๐Ÿ˜‹?

@ Blk 2, Changi Village road, Changi Village Food Centre (FC).

Stall : Woon Woon Pek Bee Hoon #01-52.

Ordered 1 plate of Lala Prawn White Bee Hoon @ $6.00.

Whatโ€™s so good ๐Ÿ˜Š?

This morning, I have job assignment to do 4 deliveries of cakes ๐ŸŽ‚ & biscuits ๐Ÿช for corporate account - Restaurants: 2 in the city; 1 @ VivoCity and the last one @ Changi ...

The magnet ๐Ÿงฒ at this Hawker Centre seemingly too strong too resist ! ๐Ÿคฃ

Here, I am... surveying for more than 10mins, just refusing to eat the fame Nasi Lemak and other good stalls but chosen this unassuming stall: Woon Woon Pek Bee Hoon, as I observed this uncle (helper or assistant) doing his extra mile to pack the Bee Hoon w/ seafood into the disposable container for a last customer, and using a shrink wrap on TOP before enclosing it with the cover, so that no leakage whatsoever happens ๐Ÿค” ... so smart of it - thatโ€™s thinking out of the box ๐Ÿ“ฆ ! ๐Ÿค“

Itโ€™s this humble action and beyond the call of duty, that make me order the dish from this stall... ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

After 8 mins wait, my dish ready and I brought to the nearest table to photo eats 1st ...

As I observed many unique actions happen and had a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) with the diminutive sized Chef ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿณ as he took time to answer me below:

Key weapons :

1. Seafood - Lala ๐Ÿš& Prawns ๐Ÿฆ fresh everyday and I noted that only the Prawns ๐Ÿฆ x 3 relatively bigger medium sized pieces were pre-fried 1st inside the wok. (See photo). This is to enable the fragrances of wok fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ and the natural fragrance of the prawns to be embedded into the soup or broth later ... ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

2. Bee Hoon - Pre-fried 1st done โœ… earlier in the morning. To enable the fragrance of the bee Hoon to be emitted inside the soup ! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

3. Broth/ soup - a soup base already typically prepare (be it chicken stock or meat bone stock or even Lala etc) - as the seafood of Lala ๐Ÿš x 4pcs and Prawns ๐Ÿฆ goes inside the soup, added extra oomph to the broth and the fried Bee Hoon w/ cabbage ๐Ÿฅฌ ... no wonder the broth tasted so fragrance with garlics and fresh seafood smell, tastefully โœ… w/o any MSG. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

4. Pork lard - extra crunchiness and blend well with the soup as the oil absorbs and the lard shall become softer later ... eat w/ Bee Hoon or w soup ! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

5. Garnishing with shallots and spring onions to enhance overall taste ! Pairing with cut chillies ๐ŸŒถ provide the spiciness u may desired of.

The soul of this seemingly simple but not too simple dish are : Fresh seafood : Prawns ๐Ÿฆ and Lala ๐Ÿš; Bee Hoon and the broth w/ extra ingredients embedded.

Added into my list of library ๐Ÿ“š of must eat as itโ€™s valued for monies and itโ€™s amazing fragrances and great taste bud.

As Always ... Itโ€™s Lala Prawns Pek Bee Hoon ... Yummily ๐Ÿ˜‹ Great ๐Ÿ‘!
