Singapore Noodles, is actually not a traditional recipe that you would find in Singapore. This dish is something that you would find on a Chinese American menu.

Believe it or not the first time I actually tried these noodles was in London when I had a craving for some delicious Asian food, I happened upon a great restaurant, and then after having this dish I knew I had to recreate it. What I love about this recipe is it literally has all of my favorite Asian ingredients and flavors all compiled into one dish! And if that isn’t enough it is also an easy meal to store for leftovers throughout the week!

For this Singapore fried noodles recipe, one of the proteins I use is Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork) which is my favorite pork for any Asian recipe and you can check out how I make it using the link. If you are in a crunch for time you do not have to use the Chinese BBQ Pork but I can assure you it adds the perfect flavor to the dish.
