Holland V Fried Beehoon has seemingly been around forever - 30 years? But that's long in Singapore, a country which is only touching 50-years-old this year.
Holland V Fried Beehoon is perhaps the most popular stall at Holland Village's tiny food centre, with long queues every morning. You choose from fried beehoon (rice vermicelli) or a mix of fried mee/koayteow in dark sauce. Sides include batter-fried fish, shrimps, tofu, sweet Taiwanese sausages, Chinese luncheon meat (my fave), fried eggs (over-easy) and braised cabbage - all standard breakfast beehoon accompaniments.
I opted for the usual luncheon meat & fried egg to go with my noodle mixture of beehoon/mee/koayteow. Ground red chilli paste and pickled green chillis were added as condiments.
Not sure what's the attraction here, or why some foodies in Singapore waxed lyrical about the place - I found the noodles pretty bland and tasteless, and the sides cold. Hardly something I'd expected from a 3-decade-old, successful stall. But then, one man's meat is another's poison.
