Mee Goreng as it is commonly known, a direct Malay translation which literally means Fried Noodle.
There are many different types of mee goreng varieties that you can find here depending on individual’s preference and taste buds.
For me, I am extremely particular when it comes to eating mee goreng. In my opinion, a champion mee goreng will be none other than the Indian-styled type which traditionally comes cooked in dark red spice sauce with mutton bits as condiments. I must agree that it is very hard to find such authentic ones out there. Sellers usually substitute with cheaper alternatives condiments like potato, tomato, chye sim (green leafy vegetable), cabbage, green peas or tau kwa (bean curd).
So far, I have managed to source out 2 such stalls with my above requirement.
First stall being, Five Star Fast Food which is located on the 2nd floor at Taman Jurong Hawker Centre.
The mee goreng comes with generous serving of “visible” minced mutton bits and goes extremely well especially by topping it off with a sunny side up egg with the runny yolk wobbling from side to side.
Look at that mouth watery plate of mee goreng. Aren’t you already salivating just by staring at it?
Next stall would be none other than Al-Sheik Mee Stall at Adam Road Food Centre.
Looks almost similar in comparison to the first stall and tastes equally power. Only difference is that their minced mutton bits is not as “visible”. Overall, the experience is still there.
Have a go at both stalls if you have the chance to do so and let me know your thoughts thereafter. 😉
