'Mee-fun' or 'rice noodles' made their way to Singapore via travelling Fujianese Chinese traders rice is predominantly grown in this sub-tropical Chinese province. On Singaporean soil, rice noodles fused with ingredients like turmeric and curry powder used by other trading Indians and local Malays and thus this delicious stir-fried rice noodle dish was born. It is a takeaway favourite all over the world and one of my favourite brunch dishes. The bacon is not traditional but is a good substitute for Chinese char-siu roast pork. Don't let the long list of ingredients faze you, it's worth it to create the layers of flavours!

Heat the groundnut oil in a wok, and when hot, stir-fry the ginger, chiles, mushrooms and turmeric for a few seconds. Add the bacon, and cook for less than 1 minute. Add the red bell pepper, carrots, and bean sprouts and cook for another minute, then add the cooked chicken, and stir well to combine. 

Add the noodles, and stir-fry well, for 2 minutes, then season with the chiles, soy sauce, oyster sauce and vinegar. Stir to combine.
