Singaporean Style Bee Hoon is often served for breakfast , there were so many times it was my go to veggie option durings staycation in Singapore. Unfortunately, most of the time it's really oily.

I performed a simple test by preparing 2 versions of Vegan Bee Hoon, the only difference was to completely remove the oil from one of the dishes. I could do that by using stainless steel work from Cristel (available here).
