Food For Now: Ebi Bar brings back bestselling limited time menu item Hokkien Noodles
After its debut run ended on 18th August 2021, Ebi Bar has been inundated with diners calling for the return of its Hokkien Noodles ($12.90/$19.80/$68.80) with customers calling it ‘legendary’ and the ‘best Hokkien Noodles in Singapore’. In response to the overwhelming support and demand, Ebi Bar’s Hokkien Noodles will be back from 30th September 2021 to 31st October 2021 for takeaways and delivery.
First launched in August in line with Singapore’s 56th birthday, the Hokkien Noodles sold out within a week, a full month ahead of expectations. Ebi Bar eventually sold close to 300 packets, way ahead of the planned 100. Ebi Bar is committed to giving back to the community during these trying times and gave a percentage of the proceeds from the sales to the less privileged in the form of meal vouchers to spend at the hawker stalls at Bendemeer Food Centre. Ebi Bar is committed to doing the same this time around where a portion of the proceeds will be used to support the less privileged.
The secret to the dish’s success lies in how they unearthed a classic 1960s recipe that uses sea cucumbers, an ingredient that only towkays of that era could afford. Secondly, the noodles are wok-fried twice to bring out that fragrant wok-hey flavour and are then simmered in Ebi Bar’s rich umami broth. Thirdly, the dish is topped with Ikura for an added flavour, and fried chicken skin in keeping with the restaurant’s no pork and no lard promise. Finally, the Hokkien Noodles are wrapped in authentic opeh leaf, giving it a hint of woodiness. The $19.80 version of the dish comes served with a pair of Signature “Chao Da” (Charred) Ebi whilst the $68.80 is a family pack perfect for three to four pax.
Ebi Bar’s Hokkien Noodles are available for ordering here and at its at Cuppage Plaza. Ebi Bar is accepting orders now but due to current high demand, orders for Hokkien Noodles will be fulfilled from 30 September.
