Best Singaporean Spicy Noodles
This is my first blog post of 2020. I’m sorry I haven’t updated my blog in a while. You see, I’ve been busy studying for my realtor’s exam, which has occupied a huge chunk of my time. Once my exams are over, I promise to update my blog more.
My Singaporean Spicy Noodles dish happens to be one of my favourites at Congee Wong down the street. In fact, I usually pay over $13 dollars for this dish but now I’m saving $5 plus tips. Lately, I have been going on a spending diet. For my New Year’s resolution, I made a promise to myself to spend less money by eating out less. This is the theme of Foodie2Luv: enjoying delicious comfort food at home instead of splurging on expensive dinners at restaurants.
For this Singaporean Spicy Noodles dish, I went to Loblaws to buy a package of vermicelli noodles. The secret to cooking the vermicelli noodles is to soak the noodles in hot water for three minutes and then dry off the noodles on a paper towel. In case you don’t know what Vermicelli noodles look like, it looks like thin white string. I always buy the Rooster brand. This dish is every bit as good and spicy thanks to the curry. It’s even tastier the next day as the curry flavour sinks in. The Thai chili is optional. I only put it in because I needed that spicy kick.
