A simple recipe of everyone’s favourite Hokkien Mee – there is little chance you have not tried a variant of this drool-worthy dish.
We used yellow noodles and bee hoon (rice vermicelli) for that slurpiness. This dish is awesomely paired with Pokka Sencha Japanese Tea for that perfect pairing with the broth used. There’s a lot of prawns, squid, and pork so get ready for a good feasting!
P.S. No sugar also means zero calories, which means it’s better for your health after having a full meal. 🙂
