Or should I call it Japchae-style seafood noodles? I drew inspiration from Japchae (a Korean stir-fry dish of sweet potato noodles or ‘dangmyeon’ and vegetables) and combined it with rice vermicelli (‘bee hoon’) to create this wet seafood bee hoon. It’s my rendition of the famous Sembawang white bee hoon with a Korean touch 😉 I loved the combination of both noodles that somewhat gave a springy chew and the gravy was just infused with the natural sweetness of fresh seafood. Who cares if the noodles look like a lump of mess? Just dig in! 🙂
