In Singapore, and probably in Malaysia too, "hokkien noodles" are stir-fried with lard, beansprouts, prawns, slices of squid and lean pork, and vegetables. They are also known as "fried prawn noodles".

The dish is commonly served with a lime to be squeezed for the juice to flavour the dish, and with plenty of sambal or belachan chili.

Tip: For maximum flavour, a generous use of garlic and lard is the best, however fattening it may be.
