Today we have something I find interesting. I’ve heard before about the popularity of ‘Singapore Noodles’ in Britain, and that they’re not actually from Singapore. Here’s a little about that from Wikipedia –
Singapore-style noodles (Chinese: 星洲炒米; pinyin: xīngzhōuchǎomǐ) is a dish of stir-fried rice vermicelli seasoned with curry powder, vegetables, scrambled eggs and meat, most commonly chicken, beef, char siu pork, or prawns.
The dish, despite its name, was not created in Singapore and is rather uncommon there. It is very commonly found at Cantonese-style restaurants and take away eateries in Hong Kong. The dish is also very popular in English, Australian, Canadian and American Chinese cuisine.
This doesn’t look to be the same thing, however I could be wrong. I tghink perhaps I will go with the garnish that the foreign version includes; I do have car siu pork in the freezer… Scrambled egg sounds interesting too. Definitely not rice vermicelli here though – these are fried wheat noodles. I suppose the best thing is to research KOKA’s website –
So aspects of all of these seem to be part of what the Wikipedia mentions above. So yeah – sounds interesting and time to give it a try!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, char siew pork, scrambled egg, sweet onion and coriander. The noodles have a good gauge and chew, about what I would expect. The flavor was interesting; I detected tomato, a little spiciness, a little sweetness. There was something else – paprika! It worked quite well. The flavor is unique and quite nice. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8888056813179.
