“Post Hari Raya food? Not really…. It’s for any day, any time, you want!”
Mee Goreng, a fried noodle dish, commonly eating by the people in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. There are different versions of Mee Goreng among the races. Some like it a little bit sweeter while others like it very spicy. Mee Goreng is similar to Chinese ‘Chow Mien’, if this sounds more familiar to you. They both cooked with yellow noodle. However, Mee Goreng appears more moist, pinkish in appearance and often spicy in taste. You are able to find Mee Goreng in hawker center, food court and even high-end restaurant as local delights in Singapore. Yes, Mee Goreng stall in hawker centre often operates by Malay and Indian race. They cook most of the genuine taste of it! :)
“Char Siu, Char Siew, Char Shao, BBQ Pork… etc, whatever you called it… Today’s the simple and delicious homecooked Char Siu Noodle. So, make it simple. 叉烧.. :)”
Feeling dreadful to cook elaborately, yet, have no idea what to pack for lunch over the lazy weekend? It has always been my ‘problem’, especially if I already am prepared to cook a lavish dinner meal. I will surely feel reluctant to have to cook for lunch the same day. However, what to eat, what to eat? It would be easier, if you are someone who doesn’t mind eating salad, or simply drink some cereal or milk as lunch, but for those who must have staple food for meals…..
“Chinese egg noodle with Wonton dumplings, we called it, Wanton Mee, and this is one of the Singapore’s hawker delights, the local-style of having delicious fuss-free noodle meal, anywhere & anytime”
Easy-to-assemble Singapore local gourmet to be fixed as dinner or lunch at home. I had the dry version for more flavour, but you can cook it in soup, if wished. Simply omit the listed condiments, add the blanched egg noodle into the same soup used for the wonton. Well, I’ll show you the soup version next time..
“Japanese sesame sauce noodle dish, simply top with your favourite ingredients to make a good additions to the dish, as desired.”
This recipe came to me from one of my office buddies, Joyce. She loved this noodles dish for its effortless cooking method and the delicious taste of the Japanese sesame sauce, likeable by the family. So, I took her recommendation and got a bottle of the sesame sauce off the shelves. Tried it and I liked it. Most importantly, it’s so easy and quick to prepare as a simple lunch or dinner. A great recipe to busy working class.
Stir-fried Hokkien noodles dish is cooked and presented differently in Singapore and Malaysia. Even choice of noodle used in the dish is different. For instances, Singapore uses flat strands and cooked with more watery and the gravy is less dark in colour, while Malaysia uses thick round strand resembling udon and usually cooked with loads of super dark colour thick soy sauce.
I loved both styles, and am going to share the Singapore-style Hokkien Mee where you may easily have it in many “Zhi-Char store 煮炒摊” (food store selling Chinese cuisine in coffee shop/ hawker centre).
