It is a regular item on the Hong Kong menu, Singapore noodles are a Cantonese dish from Hong Kong. The British brought curry to Hong Kong and rice noodles were common in Southeast Asia. Combining curry powder and rice noodles was reminiscent of Singapore’s Indian-Chinese fusion, so the dish was called “Singapore noodles”.
It is also very popular here in the Take away restaurant in Ireland, but making this at home is easier than you think, do you want to try with me?
