A plate of Char Hor Fun consists of wide Chinese noodles that’s made from rice. Then it is coated with a thick, usually savoury egg gravy. Then, we have the Deep Fried Hor Fun version that, to us, is rather unique.

Now, let’s take a closer look at what’s on a plate of Deep Fried Hor Fun. As the name suggests, instead of regular thick noodles, this version comes with the noodles being deep-fried, closely resembling crispy air pockets. Of course, the egg gravy is drenched over the deep-fried Hor Fan noodles too.
