AFF Singapore - Mee Hoon Kueh (Hand Pulled Noodles)

The last part of Asian Food Fest, Singapore :)

Let's start with this heart noodle dish loved by me and family
This China origin dish is easily found island wide. You definitely see it in any food court you patronize
They typically sell different kind of shapes for the noodle, with the same soup base and a variety of topping. There are fried version, too

I personally love mee hoon kueh more than others, not sure why, just love the texture
Hence my experiment on making it :)

I love the rather thick chewy mee hoon kueh like this :)

The kids prefer the meat to be shaped into balls :)


Recipe is from Sonia from Nasi Lemak Lover with some modification

What you need:

500g plain flour
200ml water
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp salt

  1. Mix flour, egg and salt in a mixing bowl. Slowly add in water, knead til smooth about 5 mins
  2. Shape dough into ball, keep aside covered with clingwrap for 1 hour or more

  2. Boil pork ribs in a pot of water and simmer for an hour. Add in ikan bilis and continue to simmer for another 45 mins. Taste with salt, set aside

200g minced pork, marinate with sesame oil, salt, pepper and tapioca flour, shape into balls
