Must-try economic bee hoon stalls
Economic bee hoon is a staple in our local breakfast scene. We love it for many reasons: its affordability and generous portion; how there’s an array of fried food to pair with the noodles; and the piquant sambal chilli that tops it off. However, not all stalls are rank equal, with some faring better than the other.
Here are seven fried economic bee hoon stalls you can consider for a sumptuous breakfast!
1. Yan Fried Bee Hoon

Yan Fried Bee Hoon shot to fame when Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong was seen queuing 30 minutes for its signature Fried Chicken Wings ($1.20). Delightfully addictive, the juices of the chicken wing oozes out instantly, as you tear off its crisp skin. The menu has mostly remained unchanged over the past 10 years, with its Fried Bee Hoon ($0.60) being one of the cheapest you can find in Singapore.

2. Hock Lian Huat Prawn Cracker and Ngoh Hiang

While Hock Lian Huat Prawn Cracker and Ngoh Hiang sells ngoh hiang and fried fritters in the afternoon, they serve Fried Bee Hoon ($0.70) for ravenous locals in the morning. Most of the sides are fried to a delicate crisp, releasing an ASMR-worthy crunch when you bite into them. Be sure to order their signature Ngoh Hiang ($1)! Packed with minced meat and onions, before being seasoned with five-spice powder, this meaty parcel offers a firm and chewy texture at every mouthful.

Located near Pioneer MRT Station, Bai Li Xiang Economic Bee Hoon is a popular option among NTU students to satisfy their late-night supper cravings. New batches of food are constantly being prepared, and the food is therefore always served piping hot. Their Bee Hoon ($1) is not too oily and prices here are fairly reasonable, allowing you to comfortably wolf down huge servings.

Nestled within a conclave of HDB estates in Hougang, 327 Fried Bee Hoon is a Michelin-guide-listed stall that instantly impresses. Fried to an inviting coffee brown, their Fried Chicken Thigh ($1.50) is well-seasoned and succulent, leaving you craving for another bite. The eatery also serves a good Nasi Lemak ($2) that’s known for its smooth and aromatic coconut rice.
Address: Blk 327 Hougang Avenue 5, #01-156, Kimly Coffeeshop, Singapore 530327
Opening hours: Daily 5am to 11am

5. Holland Village Fried Bee Hoon

Do not be deceived by the dish’s disorderly appearance; its flavourful Fried Bee Hoon ($1) has earned a steadfast following of brekkies over the years. Cooked with self-prepared lard, the vermicelli has a unique savouriness. Be sure to get a good spoonful of their potent sambal, which gives the bee hoon a deliciously spicy touch.
Address: 1 Lorong Mambong, #01-01, Holland Village Market and Food Centre, Singapore 277700
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 6:30am to 1:30pm
6. Hup Lee Fried Bee Hoon

What I love most about Hup Lee Fried Bee Hoon is their noodles’ overall consistency in quality; the Fried Kway Teow ($1), Fried Noodles ($1) and Bee Hoon ($1) are equally delectable. Their sambal chilli adds a tangy-sweetness to their noodles, with a trace of hae bee and onion. For sides, go for their Chicken Wings ($1.20). The wings are coated in a thin batter, which retains the moisture and juiciness of the chicken.
Address: 101 Yishun Avenue 5, #01-03, Chong Pang City, Singapore 760103
Opening hours: Daily 6am to 9pm
7. Qi Xiang

Qi Xiang is another popular breakfast destination for residents of Ang Mo Kio. Seasoned with dark soya sauce, their Fried Bee Hoon ($0.70) is savoury and aromatic. The beansprouts within the noodle offer a light sweetness, and help reduce the greasiness of the bee hoon.
Address: Blk 226H Ang Mo Kio Street 22, #01-27, Singapore 568226
Opening hours: Fri-Wed 7am to 2pm
