Mee Rebus


How's the going everyone? Hope all is well and good with you. Are you in return asking me what I have been up to from the last time we caught up with each other? Honestly, nothing new, nor exciting. Its basically the same daily grind. Work and home affairs, that's about it. That's life when we have to work for money, simultaneously ensure we keep our love ones tummy happy by cooking as well. Sure, of course. Speaking about my cooking, oh-well, another noodle dish which usually comes into our food picture during weekends. Remember, I have already told you (Curry Chicken Noodles)?  Looks like its been raining noodles (Penang Assam Laksa, Hokkien Mee, Penang Mee Yoke, Malaysian Fried Mee & Home Made Curry Mee) on Nava K, don't you agree? Today, I am gonna fill you up with this Mee Rebus. Boiled noodles, the direct translation I think will put shame to this, our another bowl Malaysian food. So, forget about direct translation, let's just hail it as it is. Mee Rebus. Done. Mee Rebus by far is crazily satisfying and awesomely delicious. I bet if you are a Malaysian, you must at least once tuck into Mee Rebus? I am assuming. The best amongst the rest I reckon is from the road side stalls, but the one fault of them is none, except gravy might be extremely sweet. Mine version, trust me, is not. Sweet potatoes for the right consistency and for natural sweetness. Thick spicy gravy sincerely is the core to a delicious Mee Rebus, generously ladled over yellow noodles assembled alongside fresh prawns, chillies, bean curd boiled egg, coriander leaves and fried shallots garnished atop and please squash in calamansi lime for tang zang prior to digging deep under. Okay bye!!
