Sembawang White Beehoon (Sembawang 白米粉)

Good news, for foodies in the North! Sembawang White Beehoon previously was under-going renovation. Now the renovation has ended and the shop is now open for business! The shop is located directly opposite Sembawang Shopping Centre. It has been featured in several newspapers and magazines. This place is crowded during lunch or dinner time. And it is hard to find parking space.

Look at the change after the renovation. Now it look so bright, clean and ‘white’.
Now, there’s a queue system. Waited about 20minutes in this queue. More orderly and fair, allowing customers to make an order prior to getting a seat. Its much better this way from the owners’  and customers’ point of view. For owners, turnabout time is decreased as customers no longer sit down and decide on what to order. For customers already sitting down and eating, no pressure of people standing next to you waiting for you to finish up.
Lime juice $1.50 per mug
Ordered lime juice. Do note, the drink stall is now located at the interior of the stall. So do not order from when you ordering the main dishes as they are two separate entity. Was told that many people tried to ordered drinks when they were ordering the dishes as they did not see the drink stall and assumed that it was now one entity.

Same old menu =) Glad there was no price increase despite the renovation. Waited for about another 10-20 minutes for the food to arrive after getting a table.

Seafood White Beehoon $7.00
The signature Seafood White Beehoon. The $7 portion is just nice for 2 person to share. The beehoon was cooked with a rich wok-hei flavour, soft and delicious. With generous and fresh ingredients such as prawns, squids, vegetables and pieces of fried egg. The gravy was light yet tasty. Its a simple and light dish that was cooked to perfection. Have never eaten beehoon that was cooked in this way. This is a must order if you come here.
Sambal Chili Sauce (left)
Great Sambal Chili Sauce that is spicy and sour, is not the same as those that are available in the chicken rice. Totally love this sauce! This sauce complements the beehoon well! Of course, the beehoon taste great alone without any sauce.

Bittergourd Omelette (Wet) $5.00
I am  a huge fan of bittergourd. Most of my peers do not like that. I am lucky she do eats that too, hence we can order bittergourd =). This portion might be quite biased. The Bittergourd Omelette taste delicious. The bittergourd was cooked to perfection, it was not hard nor was it too soft. In some eateries, their bittergourds are hard, meaning that it was cooked too quickly. The egg as you can see was not over cooked, it was soft and in small pieces. Great dish, you can see effort was put into cooking this dish.

Egg Toufu with Mixed Vegetable $10.00
This dish was just average as the other 2 dishes were really so awesome that I do not remember any amazing about this dish. Do not be mistaken that this dish is lousy. But I would say that this dish seems abit too costly at $10.00. Making it the most expensive dish for the night.

We might have over ordered for 2 person. Was very full after finishing the meal. A great meal that was light, healthy and delicious. Similar to home cook food as the dishes are so simple and hearty. .In terms of price, it was not expensive, definitely value for money. This place is definitely worth a try for a Cze Char selling this quality of food, its a rare gem. After eating it, I am sure that you will be craving for their signature Seafood White Beehoon and wish you found out about this shop much earlier.
