How much will this plate of fried mee hoon cost in our local food court? Estimated S$15 spent for on all the ingredients and more enough to serve 8 pax....economical enough to prepare this at home :) But the time spent on preparation, cooking and cleaning, if not serving a large group of people, is better just to 'tabao' a packet outside hahaha...
The side dishes....simple stir-fried cabbage & fried eggs....
fish cake & luncheon meat
and of course not to be missed....fried chicken wings!
