Fish Head Bee Hoon

Fish Head Bee Hoon

Description:
Fish head bee hoon is a dish consisting of bee hoon (rice vermicelli) and fish slices in a soup. In this Singaporean favourite, the fish and soup are the two components which make the dish special. Stalls usually use a type of freshwater fish, the Snakehead, to cook this dish. It has a pleasantly firm texture and a neutral smell and taste. The fish slices are first lightly stir-fried, blanched in soups or coated with flour before being fried. The soup is made from fish stock and evaporated milk and sometimes pieces of pork lard are added in to enhance the overall flavour.

Trivial:
There is a special variation to the fish head bee hoon that had everyone swooning since its' creation 14 years ago - the XO fish head bee hoon. The addition of the famous brandy to the soup has tickled the taste buds of many who have come to love the dish. The original stall is likely the 'Holland Village XO Fish Head Bee Hoon', with the owner claiming that he only uses the freshest of ingredients to match the 'luxury' of XO.
