Home-made mee siam
Mee Siam! One of many one-dish meals popular in Singapore and Malaysia. A complex dance of spicy, sweetish and savoury flavours, mee siam has its fans across all races here. It's even landed a leading government official in hot soup for not fully understanding its contents but that's a different story.
I didn't like mee siam when I was a kid but nowadays, a good plate can send saliva glands into overdrive. Sorry someone else cooked this dish above, so I don't know how to replicate it exactly, but here's a recipe that looks pretty authentic. Feel free to experiment until you find your preferred balance of flavours.
