Mee Rebus, Mee Siam, Mee Soto, Montong Soto, Bee Hoon Soto, Lontong, Gado Gado are all goodies that makes your mouth drool and watery. If I could place an order right now, I would. But let’s take a look at Mee Siam first, for starters.

If you mention Mee Siam, I’d think back on the good old days when we used to have the home economics classes in school. This was actually one of the recipes that was on the list to make. And my gosh, I think it must have been the hardest dishes to make due to it’s variaty of ingredients. Making the gravy to go with the dish is a challenge but has a surprise once you’re done with it. Every ingredient which stands on your kitchen table will be used, all heads, tails and shells. Don’t even think of throwing anything away. Finishing off the dish in 10 minutes, after hours of hard work? Yes, it’s definately worth the time.

You might think this dish has to come originally from Thailand? Wrong. It’s actually a popoular Nonya speciality in Malaysia and Singapore. There are also dry variations where you fry the noodles, but we would like to see here an original recipe, thanks to Jacq. Have fun!
