Killiney’s Hainanese White Bee Hoon had seafood and lots of other ingredients including eggs and vegetables. The broth was light, yet flavourful. The bee hoon was not soggy and there was a hint of smokiness. It was a rather good version of white bee hoon.
Sliced Fish Mui Fan had ingredients similar to the white bee boon. The sauce was thicker and more gooey. The portion was quite large. The dish was not particularly remarkable. Nice comfort food.
