"Singapore"-style noodles (Chinese: 星洲炒米; pinyin: xīngzhōuchǎomǐ) is a dish of stir-fried rice vermicelli seasoned with curry powder, 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. 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, and American Chinese cuisine. Being a Hong Kong invention, Singapore noodles are generally unknown and unavailable in Singapore itself. [3]
