Fried Hokkien Mee

    50 mins

    Whenever I go to the hawker center, fried hokkien mee is a dish I always order, regardless of how long the line is. I'm sure the hawker uses pork fat but when I learned to make this dish as a college student in the U.S., I used vegetable oil instead. Needless to say, it didn't taste the same but was a good substitute!
