Serves: 3 

  • 150g Bee Hoon or 3 pieces
  • 30g Mermaid Fish
  • 1 can Pork Leg
  • 1 can Pork Chop (small)
  • 200g Chye Sim
  • 1 Chilli (shredded)
  • 1 tsp Garlic
  • ½ tsp Oil

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Soak bee hoon till soft. Drain & set aside.
  2. Remove bones from pork & shred pork. Keep sauce, mushroom & chestnuts.
  3. Heat oil & fry garlic till fragrant. Add ½ the sauce, bee hoon, then pork. Cover lid & simmer for 2-3 mins.
  4. Mix well. Add vegetables & remaining sauce. Cover & simmer for another 2 mins.
  5. Meanwhile, rinse fish lightly. Heat oil & fry fish till crispy. Do not fry on high heat or you’ll burn the fish. Serve the fish at the side of your delicious bee hoon or you can place them on top. Put chilli if you like it a little spicy.


For an improvised version, I always like to add a crispy touch to the bee hoon. These are called Mermaid Fish & it really perks up the entire dish.


Use your hands when removing the bones so you can feel.
