To the uninitiated, Satay Bee Hoon just looks like a chaotic plate of orange-brown gravy which is, quite honestly, not the most IG-worthy. However, messy food is sometimes the most delicious. Commonly associated with Teochew people who immigrated to Singapore and a fusion of both Malay and Chinese influences, the sweet, salty, and spicy peanut sauce is similar to the one served with satay, which explains its name. Unfortunately, Satay Bee Hoon is getting harder to find these days, due to the painstaking work that goes behind it. Making the peanut sauce alone can take several hours, as the peanuts have to be roasted, crushed and then fried with a variety of spices! To get a taste of this slowly dying art, make sure to check out these 13 satay bee hoon in Singapore.
Located at Albert Centre and selling satay bee hoon for more than 30 years, Meng Hui Satay Bee Hoon has been well-received by locals and tourists alike, and it was even voted one of the 10 Best Satay Beehoon Stalls in Singapore by Yahoo! Expect fragrant, thick and smooth peanut gravy to go with your noodles, cuttlefish, cockles, prawns, pork slices, pork liver, blanched kangkong and beansprouts. If you prefer something simpler, you can also go for their Cuttlefish Kang Kong Bee Hoon. As its name suggests, you will only find cuttlefish and kang kong with your bee hoon and satay sauce.

Good food often draws a long queue, and it’s no exception at Old Teochew Mee Siam Satay Bee Hoon who has opened another outlet at Tampines. A lot of work and time goes into preparing the sauce for their Satay Bee Hoon, which also comes generously laden with cockles, kang kong, pork liver, lean pork slices, tau pok and cuttlefish in a nutty and smooth textured peanut sauce. They also serve a mean mee siam, and we highly recommend trying both if you can!

Satay bee hoon is a dish you don’t find often at hawker centres, and Bak Kee Teochew Satay Bee Hoon is supposedly one of the best in Singapore.

Centre Satay Beehoon has been serving delicious plates of satay bee hoon since 1979. A homemade gravy with dry-roasted peanuts coats every strand of bee hoon for a smooth, nutty plate of deliciousness. Their sauce is a little thinner than other stalls out there, making it a lighter alternative. Apart from Satay Beehoon the stall also serves a side of Cuttlefish Kangkong!

Whampoa Market & Food Centre is home to two satay bee hoon stalls, one of which is Whampoa Satay Beehoon. The plate is served with no pork liver and comes with pork slices, cuttlefish, prawns, kangkong and tau pok. The bee hoon is cooked to al dente with a firm bite as it soaks up all the gravy that comes with chunks of roasted peanuts. It does taste on the lighter side, so folks who prefer a robust and rich satay bee hoon should probably look somewhere else! Apart from satay bee hoon, the stall also serves a decent laksa.

Liang Liang Cooked Food is the other satay bee hoon stall at Whampoa Makan Place. The satay gravy here is creamy and nutty, pairing nicely with the bee hoon.

Which is the better satay bee hoon at Whampoa? You be the judge!

This unique stall at Chomp Chomp Food Centre sells both traditional Hainanese Beef Noodles and Satay Bee Hoon, which might seem kind of strange. The Satay Bee Hoon here features a gravy with an interesting tang that seems to divide people into two camps – those that love it and those who don’t. The peanuts are crunchy and aromatic, while the ingredients are typical of what you’d usually find: succulent prawns, moreish cubes of freshly fried tau pok, blanched kang kong, and bee hoon with a firm bite.
