Mee Siam, which means “Siamese noodle”, is a dish of thin rice noodles ( vermicelli ) in spicy, sweet and sour light gravy. It is a common one-dish meal in Singapore and Malaysia.
For the version served here, no Assam water (processed tamarind juice) is added. Instead replaced with “Secret Ingredients”, which cannot be revealed which I think is fresh lime juice. Tastes more tangy and sour than usual. Light and fresh too.
The owner also shares with us about his 2 other dishes on the menu. The Mee Rebus has potato added. Interesting, what has potato got to do with the dish. Make the gravy thick? But I am quite full already, will check out another time. As for the Laksa, it took his whole morning to make the gravy.
