2. Char Hor Fun
For those who wonder what is Char Hor Fun, Char Hor Fun can be simply described as rice noodles in egg gravy. If you pay a visit to Radzidah’s stall, you can watch the preparation of Char Hor Fun there. (It’s fun watching the swift chef cooks!) Hor Fun and vermicelli are fried using their special homemade sauce before the gravy is cooked. Char Hor Fun has a bit of sweet taste from the soy sauce used. It is suitable for someone who doesn’t take spicy food and match well if you pair it with their pickled chilies. This dish also comes with a generous portion including two big prawns and fish balls.
