Restoran Ming Huat, Melaka …mee kahwin is a mash-up you don’t want to miss

Mee kahwin, crudely translated is married noodles. It is – excuse me while I use the f-word – a fusion dish. The dish may sound frighteningly exotic and confused, but the marriage of mee rebus and Indian rojak has innate cohesion.

The mee kahwin here at one of the stalls at Restaurant Ming Huat is well executed, inventive Malay cooking served with sweet, sour, salty, spicy and peanuty flavour combinations. Yellow noodles are topped with taukua (fried beancurd), hard-boiled egg, potato cubes, fresh bean sprouts, crunchy cucur udang (prawn fritters), and cut green chillies, bathed in generous ladles the lip-smacking gravy.

It’s a mash-up you don’t want to miss. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Restoran Al Barakath, Johor Baru…Eat the mee rebus here but don’t take away

Mee Rebus is a noodle dish which consists of mee/yellow noodle served with a tangy ,spicy brown gravy ,top with some condiments

The thick gravy of the mee rebus here what differentiates Restoran Al Barakath (aka Zainal Mee Rebus) from the rest of the mortals. However, what used to make the mee rebus here outstanding were the toppings of crispy crackers which they have since cut back on.

Be warned, though. The mee rebus here is good only for dining in the restaurant. You will be grossly disappointed if you pack it for take-aways. This is the true truth because I say it as it is…
