WHERE ARE SINGAPORE NOODLES FROM

As the name say’s it, they are said to have originated in Singapore, Hong Kong.

However today, despite its name. Some would argue that Singapore noodles are not solely from Singapore! Confusing eh?

Well not really, since Singapore is known to be the hub of many cultures.

Many of their dishes today have been influenced by many different types of foreigners over the centuries.

And so today you can find many different types of dishes eaten in Singapore.

These noodles are now well known worldwide, and are eaten by all types of people. 

WHAT’S SINGAPORE NOODLES

Singapore noodles are made with vermicelli rice noodles and bunch of seasonings. It is known for it’s sweet & savory curry flavor that has hints of  garlic, ginger and onions.

Which are all simmered in a chicken broth stock along with soy sauce, oyster sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil.

I tried Singapore noodles for the first time a few years back and have been addicted ever since. 

Some are made with shrimp, chicken or chinese style pork, while others are vegetarian.

I made mine with eggs today which work fantastic too.

CAN YOU REHEAT SINGAPORE NOODLES

Yes, just make sure that you are cooking the eggs fresh again or whatever meat you choose to add.

CAN SINGAPORE NOODLES BE FROZEN

No, you do not want to freeze them because rice noodles do not freeze well.

MORE TIPS:

  • You will want to start by scrambling the eggs first and then soaking the vermicelli noodles after in hot water.
  • Preparing the vegetables ahead of time is a good idea too, I used carrots so I just julienne them.
  • Feel like adding chicken, pork or shrimp, go ahead it’s amazing too! Just make sure you are cooking that separately, then adding it to the cooked vermicelli noodles. 
  • The varieties of vermicelli rice noodles are endless, so choose your favorite brand and let’s get to cooking this delicious recipe!
  • You may want to add more soya sauce near the end, stir everything together well and taste before adjusting the flavor.
