Apparently this lady has been around for a long long while. So much so that the parents of friends, uncle + aunties of fellow foodies & friends of friends (whew!) can attest to her slurpilicious noodles and swears by her superb one- of- its- kind gravy.
There’s even a juicy history that comes with the business, of which I will gladly share with you one day over a plate of …what else ? Nyonya mee rebus! 😉
A regular sized portion like the below minus any trimmings (cuttlefish, etc) is RM4.00. I wouldn’t say it’s dirt cheap, since it doesn’t come with ANY form of meat at all, but I opined that it is worth the $ once you take into consideration the laborious process required to produce the gravy.
For the Mee Rebus, (loosely translated as “noodles boiled” cos that’s how the noodles were cooked), it is all about the gravy; flavoursome, potato-infused gravy that is rich in taste yet not cloying. Plop a dollop of sambal (chilli paste) for added oomphh & jumble it up; fragrant shallots, plain bean curd, soft potatoes, freshly fried dough fritters & the simple yellow noodles.
After the plate was reduced to the above, we still had room for more. Greediness? Hunger? LOL. We can’t tell. We even shared a small plate of ‘chap fun’ (RM4) with sweet & sour pork & some veg for fibres as below. The variety for chap fun (economy rice) in this coffeeshop is not too bad.
Our Mee Goreng Regular, RM4.00 took a while to arrive so by then both of us had partially digested our “earlier” meals. :yes: The same ingredients applies here, no meat & portion is pretty small.
It is slightly wetter than he would have preferred, but I actually like mine this way as it is I’m in opinion that it might taste too reminiscing of typical chinese noodles if it has more “wok hei” (wok-fire heat).
Furthermore, the noodles are cooked with the same gravy of the mee rebus (it tasted that way to me!) so a wetter experience is expected. 😉
Sometimes laying my gastronomical fate in UnkaLeong’s hands doesn’t turn out too bad 😉 . I enjoyed both versions of the noodles here & actually wouldn’t mind stashing a few packets in the fridge for the week!
