In this video, we whipped up the Ultimate Singaporean Breakfast in Neo’s Kitchen. Since so many of you have requested an Economic Bee Hoon video, I decided to make it a challenge but with a twist. A traditional plate would consist of Bee Hoon/Egg Noodles with a bunch of sides like luncheon meat, eggs and stir-fried vegetables, with a healthy dollop of sambal. However, I came across OmniMeat, a plant-based alternative to your common meats, that offered OmniMeat Luncheon, an imitation luncheon meat. They also offered OmniMeat Strip, which is their equivalent to the sliced cuts of meat commonly used in stir-fries. There is a lucky draw for FairPrice gift vouchers, details are below!
For my challenge, I piled on at least 4 portions each of Bee Hoon and Fried Egg Noodles, together with 9 eggs and 3 packets worth of OmniMeat Luncheon onto my giant plate. My mum helped to cook the egg noodles and also stir-fried the OmniMeat Strip with some vegetables, which I added onto the platter. To round it off, I added a healthy serving of sambal.
The luncheon meat had an almost identical texture and colour to real luncheon meat and it would be difficult to tell the difference at a glance. Flavour-wise, it did taste different but not in a bad way. Luncheon meat normally tastes very salty and processed while OmniMeat Luncheon tasted “cleaner” and felt more like it was comprised of actual ground meat. The OmniMeat strips were pleasant and chewy but it was apparent that it was not meat in the flavour. However, it was far superior to most mock meats I have tried with a palatable taste and rich smoky flavour.
This was a straightforward challenge featuring one of Singapore’s most popular breakfast dishes, Economic Bee Hoon. Jazzed up with plant-based meat, an ever-growing trend that is supposed to be better for the environment, this challenge was healthier than most. OmniMeat Luncheon is certainly far healthier than any canned luncheon meat and would be a great addition to your kitchen. Do note that it requires cooking. If you are hosting for Chinese New Year, OmniMeat would be a great option to have in your spread, especially for vegetarian friends and family. OmniMeat also has a range of other Asian-inspired plant-based alternatives that would not be out of place at a Chinese New Year party. OmniMeat can be found at FairPrice and high-end grocery chains island-wide.
