Mom's Hokkien Mee

The very first thing I requested Mom to cook for us this trip was the Penang Hokkien Mee or Prawn Noodles. I have been yearning for Mom's Hokkien Mee for way too long. This is one of my all time favourite hawker food, but Mom's prawn mee is by far the best! It beats any sweaty roadside stall, every single cultishly Penang lane famous for its Hokkien Mee hands down. It's one of Mom's signature dish.



So yesterday, we invited some guests over for dinner and this is what we Mom cooked. She laboured in the kitchen for some hours, making the broth from scratch and blending together fresh ingredients. The end result, well-balanced and superbly satisfying! The noodles were nice and firm, and the prawn soup was immensely rich and had a spicy punch. Each bite was slurpingly fantastic.


On the menu also: Roast pork with crackly skin, Chicken Curry, Fried sliced Yam Bean, Tapioca Kuih and Butter Cake.

KL is great. A real relaxing holiday. Just stayed home most of the time, walks at the park, eat, sleep. The boys are enjoying themselves getting spoilt!
