    Thank you for sharing this delicious fried bee hoon……I can\’t comment anymore further as I am heading to my kitchen now to try it….. btw is your helper really called \”Chen Shimei?\”

    at first I thought you use the prawn heads to make into stock then later add into bee hoon, but just realized that you added prawn head into bee hoon, very interesting recipe and name of this dish.

    • Victoria Bakes (July 23, 2014)

      heh heh.. yes, i prefer a stronger taste, plus the prawn heads became a very crispy snack for me later (calcium…. hee hee).. you are right, there are people who use prawn stock.. but we realised it ended up too wet for our liking. we like our bee hoon still \”al dente\”.. like how hongkys like to \”taste and feel\” their rice :).. that\’s why the prawn head directly

    Thank you for sharing this mouth-watering fried mihoon. When I saw the name of your dish, I thought to myself, isn\’t this Chen ShiMei the heartless man who broke his wife\’s heart or something like that? I didn\’t know he can cook! Until I read further and realised that Chen ShiMei is your helper, hahah!

    Victoria, you have a special recipe here, first time to me hearing people using prawn head in the fried bee hon, it sounds interesting!

  • chloe (April 18, 2015)

    Hi Victoria. Just wondering so you serve the noodle with the prawn head together??? Thanks

    • Victoria Bakes (April 18, 2015)

      Hi, yes i did. it really depends on individual preference. for my family, we like to crunch on it and it is a great calcium intake. if your family does not like it, just remove before serving

  • Lynn (February 2, 2016)

    If we do not want the prawns head could we remove the heads before we add in the prawn meat?

    • Victoria Bakes (February 2, 2016)

      It\’s the prawn head that gives the taste to the dish. If you omit it, then there\’s really no difference from normal fried bee hoon. You can remove the heads before serving the dish though
