Chicken Singapore Noodles – style noodles is a dish of stir-fried rice vermicelli, vegetables, scrambled eggs, and meat, most commonly chicken or prawns. The British brought curry to Hong Kong and rice noodles were common in Southeast Asia. Combining curry powder and rice noodles was reminiscent of Singapore’s Indian-Chinese fusion, so the dish was called Chicken Singapore Noodles.
This dish is known as Xing Zhou Mi Fen in Singapore. It is very commonly found at Cantonese-style restaurants and take away eateries in Hong Kong. The dish is also very popular in Australian Chinese, Canadian Chinese, American Chinese cuisine as well in some Indian restaurants in Tamil Nadu, India.
Although the dish is not available in Singapore, a variant known as Xing Chow Bee Hoon can be found at various Tze Char outlets across the island. Unlike the Singapore noodles found in the US, Xing Chow Bee Hoon does not use any curry powder.
