233. Mee Mamak
This is 'Mee Mamak'. Do you like Mee Mamak? I loveee Mee Mamak!
I used to wonder what are the ingredients needed to make this mee. Finally, while I was in Kuching, my sister in law taught me how to cook it. She was an ex-chef of Merdeka Hotel in Kuching and had learned how to make this mee there.
One morning she cooked us 'Mee Mamak' for breakfast at my mom-in-law's house so I watched nearby to see her cooked it.
