Two Different Ways of Doing Mee Goreng

Mee Goreng

No, I'm not trying to start a new series of "Two Different Ways of Doing X." It's just that I happened to have mee goreng two days in a row based upon the choices that I happened to have in front of me. This first one was from Killiney Kopitiam at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal just after we got back from Batam. It looks pretty good in the photo, but I didn't finish it. Strangely, there were frozen peas and carrots in there; is it a Hainanese rendition?

Maggi Goreng

This second one, on the other hand, was much better. OK, it featured instant Maggi noodles instead, but still, this was delicious enough to inhale in seconds, and was from a stall called Rezki Allah Indian Muslim Food at the new Skyville @ Dawson (85 Dawson Road). Another surprising find at this new HDB estate was a fishball noodle shop next to it, featuring noodles that are good enough that we'll be happy to come back for, even if it means waiting in line again.

first one is tze char style i believe, and if you order for tze char stores, they call it ma lai mian, which is literally malay noodles, see also the Punggol Mee Goreng store. the second one seems like from the indian muslim stores who do all the great fry ups like mee goreng, nasi goreng and the ones they fry up with the instant noodles is called "Maggi Goreng" and you can order with chicken, mutton, seafood or just plain ikan bilis by adding those words behind...
