Economy Fried Rice Vermicilli (Bee Hoon)

I bet Malaysian or Singaporean know this pretty well. We usually can buy this fried noodle from the economy rice stall. Economy rice stalls typically consist of a glass case containing anywhere from 10-15 troughs of cooked food, including meat, vegetables, eggs and tofu. Customers select any combination of these dishes, which are served accompanied by a portion of steamed white rice. In Malaysia, it is more common to find the food on open troughs kept warm by hot water and an electric heater below. And most stalls sell these fried noodles.  I find that it’s one of the best-fried rice noodles ever! I love to have it with a bowl of piping hot plain congee/porridge for breakfast. Guess I watched too many Hong Kong dramas. LOL!
