Bak Kee Teochew Satay Bee Hoon sells you guessed it, satay bee hoon. Satay Bee Hoon is a dish that is rarely seen in the hawker scene these days. The number of stalls in the country is dwindling, as making this dish is surprisingly tedious.
Bak Kee Teochew Satay Bee Hoon is one of the remaining stalls, and one of the most popular ones. There’s always a queue, regardless of what time it is. As they make everything fresh, be prepared to wait for a bit before getting your order.
I got a plate of Satay Bee Hoon ($4), and my first thought was that everything looked indistinguishable. The satay sauce simply covered everything.
Be sure to give your noodles a good toss to get every strand evenly coated in the peanut sauce. The peanut smell was quite strong, even from a distance. The sauce was rich, sweet and nutty. They had crushed the peanuts into coarse chunks, so the sauce has a nice texture and a little crunch. While the sauce looks red, it is not spicy at all. The bee hoon soaked up the sauce pretty quick, so it got a little dry after a while.
