Hello Foodies and Buddies,
In this column of Dish of the Week, we are back with a spicy Malaysian noodle dish – Mee Goreng by Chef Meena. Originating from Indonesia, the dish is most commonly had in Malaysia and Singapore.
She Meena tells “My aunt runs a restaurant in Malaysia, and I learnt this dish from her when I visited there for the first time. I used to prepare it there in her restaurant. We could find the dish in every street of Malaysia, even if we go to remote villages over there.”
She gets the main ingredients of the dish – noddle and soy sauce from Malaysia, hence she is able to maintain the authentic taste. Another thing to be noted is that the noodles should be cooked with care. If it is overcooked then the taste will not be nice.
Chef Meena’s customers are really happy with the dish and her customer’s testimonials always mention that it tastes original just as they had in Singapore/Malaysia. She is very happy with the reviews. 🙂
