"Singapore"-style noodles (Chinese: 星洲炒米; pinyin: xīngzhōuchǎomǐ) is a dish of stir-fried rice vermicelli, vegetables, scrambled eggs and meat, most commonly chicken, beef, char siu pork, or prawns.

Cultural origin[edit]

This dish is known as Xing Zhou Mi Fen (星洲米粉) in Singapore[citation needed]. It is very commonly found at Cantonese-style restaurants and take away eateries in Hong Kong.[1][2] The dish is also very popular in Australian Chinese, Canadian Chinese, American Chinese cuisine as well in some Indian restaurants in Tamil Nadu, India.

Although the dish is not available in Singapore, a variant known as Xing Chow Bee Hoon (星洲米粉) can be found at various Tze Char outlets across the island. Unlike the Singapore noodles found in the US, Xing Chow Bee Hoon does not use any curry powder.[3]
