I'm a stingy bastard so by nature I get excited when I can eat well for next to nothing. One of my favorited dishes in Singapore is called Economic Bee Hoon. It's brilliant. It's a cheap man's dream - a tasty noodle dish that in its simplest form costs about 75 cents. As you add extras, like the fried egg and fish cake below, it gets a bit costlier - about 2 bucks. I'll type that again - two US dollars! I'm excited all over again - so cheap yet so delicious.
Today is Chinese New Year's Eve. We were at a market to pick up the pig, which you can see here. Today was the perfect application of the long-line rule. Go somewhere new, look for the long line, get in it, wait patiently and be rewarded. Obviously, Jalan Hock Chye's economic bee hoon is pretty sought after in these parts. I think I was 20th in line when I got in it.
