Mee Hoon Kuay – Sliced, Thin
Mee Hoon means wheat flour in Hokkien language, the dialect I spoke with my family since I was a kid. Kueh means “cake”. Mee Hoon Kueh dough is made with all-purpose flour, egg, water, and a pinch of salt. It is slightly chewy and not in any orderly shape either because the dough is torn by hand into thin pieces. Seriously, the easiest noodle one can make 🙂 So it is basically egg noodles torn into pieces by hands if you ask me 🙂
The mee hoon kueh is then served with anchovies-based soup, minced pork, fried anchovies, fried shallots and chili on the side.
