Mee hoon kueh / Pan Mee (Flat flour noodle soup)

Mee hoon kueh, the Hokkien delicacy also known as pan mee (flat flour noodle soup) is one of my favorite comfort food. I was craving for some today and thankfully I didn't have to go far to satisfy my cravings as my dad makes really excellent mee hoon kueh. (Have yet to find a restaurant which can beat his version!)

The ikan bilis (anchovies) broth is wholesome and full of flavour. The mee hoon kueh noodles made from flour, salt water and oil has a smooth texture; not too chewy, not too soft, my dad gets it just right. Add in some choy sum, shitake mushrooms and lean pork strips (or chicken strips if you like) and you've got yourself a tasty bowl of noodles. It's so good, I can easily eat 2 big bowls of this!

We always have our mee hoon kueh with a side dish of crispy, deep fried anchovies.

So, where do you get your mee hoon kueh fix?

  2. The best Pan Mee is not served in a restaurant but at a road side. I am a regular at that store but never blog about it yet due to my long back logs.
