Particular house recipe perfected via 3 generations

Any recipe tweaked and honed over a number of generations is value making an attempt. That’s the very first thing that crossed my thoughts after I got here throughout the 2 Chef’s Hougang Satay Bee Hoon web site. “Strive our Satay Bee Hoon, a Particular House Recipe Perfected via 3 Generations,” it informed me. How might I say no?

I discovered their web site and scrolled via the photographs of their dishes. Pictures of wealthy, yellow-brown curry on sq., spotless white plates of bee hoon noodles danced earlier than my eyes. Why had I by no means tasted this earlier than? I actually needed to do this dish out, technology or no technology.

Off to Hougang!

However not so quick. Getting there turned out to not be so simple as I’d thought. Seek for 2 Chef’s Kitchen and Google will inform you that it’s positioned in Hougang Mall. Nevertheless, the formal handle says it’s positioned inside Kang Kar Mall, which is correct subsequent door. This often received’t be an issue (they’re a minute’s stroll aside) however it may be on days when it’s raining, because it was after I went.

Let me share what I discovered— it could prevent some confusion and time while you determine to attempt 2 Chef’s Kitchen for your self. This stall is inside a Kopitiam within the 1-storey older a part of Hougang Mall. (You get a 10% low cost with a Kopitiam card).

Now that the geography half is settled, let’s transfer on to the gastronomy.

What I attempted at 2 Chef’s Hougang Satay Bee Hoon

I made straight for the stall’s signature dish and requested for the Satay Bee Hoon/Yellow Noodle (add cockles) (S$6.50) with bee hoon. You may also have Satay Bee Hoon/Yellow Noodle (no cockles) (S$5).

When the plate arrived in about 3 minutes, I used to be glad to see that it resembled the appetising plates on the web site that had lured me right here. The truth is, there was a bigger serving of the delicious-looking satay sauce. I used to be excited!

I scooped up a spoonful of it to take a more in-depth look. By way of consistency, the sauce was thinner than the standard satay sauce it so carefully resembles. Much less brown and extra orange than it appeared within the on-line pictures, it additionally appeared to be richer in spice than I’d have assumed. My mouth was watering in anticipation.

Taking slightly sip, I discovered that it didn’t have the sweetish flavour of satay sauce however was as a substitute spicier. It wasn’t the type of spiciness that performs havoc in your tongue however slightly one that you simply really feel because it goes down your throat. It was a wet day and that was precisely what I wanted.

I poked round for the elements and found that they’re definitely very beneficiant with them. There have been a number of skinny pork slices, cockles aplenty, cuttlefish and even many slices of tau pok.

There was additionally pork liver however I point out them final as a result of I don’t just like the style. Hah!

The noodles had been finished good. I believe their slim, stringy form pairs significantly better with the skinny satay sauce than yellow noodles however I’ll must attempt that model, too, someday quickly.

Remaining ideas

I like to recommend that you simply eat your Satay Bee Hoon sporting a brown shirt— it’s a messy affair! All of the slurpy goodness is packed right into a mouth-watering dish made higher by its distinctive tackle the satay sauce.

You’ll hear no complaints from me concerning the portion dimension and elements, both. My S$6.50 model with cockles was greater than I might deal with by myself and I doubt very many individuals will be capable to end a whole plate.

The stall additionally sells Claypot Laksa/Yellow Noodle w Prawn (S$5.80) and Claypot Curry Hen (S$5.50). My eyes additionally caught sight of a really economically-priced Claypot Hen Laksa w Fish Cake (S$3). That final one’s undoubtedly value a more in-depth look sooner or later.

The Vietnamese woman who was on the stall on the day was very nice and had a perpetual smile however spoke no English and slightly Mandarin. If you’re simply there to eat, simply level at what you need on the menu and the job’s finished. If you wish to discover out extra or have particular requests, there could also be some communication points.

Regardless, I had a really good meal with my first style of satay bee hoon. A second style is certainly on the playing cards!
