recipe: Singapore Rice Noodle

Singapore Rice Noodle with Chicken

When I started working at Pitt, oh so many (six? eek!) years ago, I discovered my favorite restaurant. A small, dive-y-looking Thai place called The Spice Island Tea House. I ate there every Wednesday, without fail. I even had Dan bring me dinner from there after I gave birth- a much-needed and much-deserved meal, I have to say!

One of my favorite dishes is Singapore Rice Noodle, and I found a recipe that I thought sounded very similar. So I tried it. BINGO! It tastes almost exactly like the Spice Island version… even if it doesn’t come in a styrofoam container.

    Jon teaches at Pitt on Tuesdays, maybe I can convince him to bring Spice Island food home with him.

    @Corrie: oh DO IT! :) My favorite dishes are Ruby Chicken, Java Fried Rice with Chicken, and Singapore Rice Noodle with Chicken. Oh, and Chicken Panang! (I like chicken. heh.) Very yummy.

  4. Sounds awesome! Think this would work with some other type of oil (since I’m allergic to peanuts)?

  5. Mmmh – that actually does look very yummy! I might try this next weekend, although I’m really not much of a Thai food fan. :)

    Thanks for the quick info on where your domain name came from! I was all like, damn – I should have done that. But then I realized that kaydee doesn’t really have that awesome, special ring to it as jayesel does. And that the whole thing in reverse – deekay – was even worse. Ugh.
