Piao Xiang Xiao Chi 飘香小吃

 A little late but still, Happy 2013 to all food collagers! Picky Girlfriend and Fussy Boyfriend managed to catch the awesome fireworks at Marina Bay area. The view was worth it despite the packed like sardine crowds.

And apologies for the long hiatus in our food blog, our camera was also giving us some problems so the pictures quality of some of the food pictures may be affected. Below pictures purely shot by our new digital camera! (Hopefully the food still looks as good as it tasted!)

Picky girlfriend is a fan of economic bee hoon stores where you get to choose your main staple plus a variety of add-on ingredients. Always a choice for breakfast when everything fails and it's Picky Girlfriend's comfort food.

So when we chanced upon this store while finding dinner options nearby our office area and boy! the queue was loooong! And to our surprise it was an evening store selling economic bee hoon! The idea of an evening store selling economic bee hoon was quite new to us, as the perception is either for breakfast or the franchise stores which open for the whole day.

And yes you've guessed it right! We joined in the queue :)

Fussy boyfriend ordered the following dishes: Egg, cabbage and chicken wings!

We love how the egg is done as the yolk is still runny and cabbage is really soft! Picky girlfriend will usually burst the yolk and spread around the bee hoon, while Fussy Boyfriend will eat the egg whites and leave the yolk to the last and savour them in a mouthful! Interesting observation: How do you eat your egg? :)

The chicken wings was well marinated and very very crispy! Believe chicken wings was one of the popular items so the supply get refilled pretty much fast. No worries about eating cold chicken wings, as each of them will be piping hot!

The highlight of the whole dish was surprisingly the bee hoon itself!  Simple looking, no additional ingredients yet the bee hoon tasted so fragrant and yummy! Usually economic bee hoon will have to be accompanied by lots of chilli sauce, but this bee hoon is a winner. SO tasty even on its own! this explains the queue and definitely worth queuing for it.

Other items which are sold included traditional desserts as green/red bean soup, porridge and also glutinous rice. We tried the green bean soup on a separate occasion and it tasted great too! Very homely and traditional bowl of dessert :)

Both Picky Girlfriend and Fussy Boyfriend rating for economic bee hoon: 4.5/5

Worth trying, worth queuing! One of the best economic bee hoon we have tried so far. Open from evening onwards only!
