    Somehow this dish is called Singapore Noodles everywhere around the world. But back home in Singapore, it is just called Hokkien Noodles. A tasty dry noodle.

      What a tasty dish! I substituted chow funn noodles for the hokkien noodles since I didn't have those. This didn't seem too spicy at all to me, but had a nice balance of flavors in the sauce. The lime added a nice interest giving a little citrus flavor to the noodles. Quite enjoyable. Thanks!

      Very good spicy dish. I didn't know what hokkien noodles were so I subsituted wide egg noodes and I also decreased the amount of shallots and garlic a little. Next time I will probably also decrease the chili sauce a little since this dish was a little too hot for our tastes, but I also may have bought the wrong kind of chili sauce (I bought hot chili sauce instead of sweet).

      Great Recipe, even the baby liked it, was a little spicy - but good! Added a bit of soya sauce and hoisin sauce in our plates. Thanks!
