Notes: 
  • Many are under the misconception that rice noodles need to be soaked in cold water. Even noodle packages sometimes  give these directions. I beg to differ! It takes way too long and doesn’t contribute at all to a better texture.
  • Also some people boil the noodles. This is terrible and you will end up with stick, soppy noodles.
  • You can add mushrooms to this beehoon to make it more aromatic.
