My First Taste of Mee Hoon Kueh and You Mian
I didn't even realize until after I ordered this mee hoon kueh that this was nothing more than that local dish ban mian. I originally ordered it because I had never heard of it before and was curious. And I did like these flat pieces of noodles (a bit like farfalle but hand-torn into irregular shapes and without the bowtie pinch)...much more than the ban mian noodles that I once got sometime ago.
I was still hungry though, so I got another bowl, this one being another name that I had never heard of before: you mian. It was from the same ban mian stall though, and hence was the same thing but with these spaghettini-like noodles underneath those dried anchovies instead. I liked the mee hoon kueh better. And to my surprise, that xia ku cao tea at the top wasn't as herbal as I thought it would be.
